Ella's Easter Basket

I finally got around to making Ella's Easter basket - just in time too since Easter is tomorrow (not like she would know the difference anyway, but still) I already made Brayden's, Daddy's and Max's baskets last year and got the idea from Pinterest.  I cannot find the pin to link back to the original source to save my life, but I will keep looking and then be sure to post it :)

This basket is so easy to make.  I got the baskets from Hobby Lobby, they are meant to be fruit baskets I think.  They come in 3 different sizes.

To make you need:

A basket
White spray paint
Wood tag
Hot Glue Gun

I first spray painted the basket and the wooden tag white.  Then super glued the ribbon around the center and also super glued a bow to one side.  On the wooden tag for Ella's basket I painted her name in a matching color but for the boys' baskets I used stickers.  I then added some Mod Podge over it so it keeps.  I drilled a small hole at the top of the tag (I just used a screwdriver to poke through) then pulled the ribbon through and tied it around the other side of the basket - and done! That's it, so easy and so cute!

I think next year I am going to have to make Brayden's bigger or switch with Daddy's because the Easter bunny seemed to go overboard this year and will be lucky if everything fits in his basket!!
