DIY Floral Easter Basket

Put all your eggs in one basket in this beautiful floral Easter basket.
To get started on this project, you’ll need:
- Your favourite fresh flowers
- Lamb’s Ear leaves
- Old or new Easter basket
- Hot glue and glue sticks
Before starting this project, you’ll want your flowers to be very hydrated so that the blooms last longer. Cut at least 1/3 off each steam then place them in 3-4/3 of room-temperature water. Leave your flowers there for at least 3-4 hours before using them. You can also let them hydrate for 24 hours so that the blooms have more time to open.
To start, cut the stems from the Lamb’s Ear leaves then hot glue them to the sides of your Easter basket. You can also use any other type of leaf that you prefer. The leaves will be the base of your flowers.
Once your base is set, cut the stems from the flowers then glue them on the leaves making sure you fill in any gaps.
Add your Easter eggs and you’re all set!
DIY Easter Egg Balloon

Make balloons even more fun by turning them into Easter egg balloons! Turn them upside down and you’ll notice that they have a very similar shape to eggs. With a little paint, you’ll have yourself some enjoyable DIY Easter egg balloons that the kids will love.
Here are the supplies that you’ll need:
- Latex balloons
- Acrylic or craft paint
- Strings, ribbons or twine
- Clear shipping tape
- Helium tank (optional)
Start by inflating your balloons and tie a temporary loose knot to the tail so they don’t slip away. Turn your balloon upside down then start painting your favourite Easter egg designs. Leave it to dry, then carefully untie the string from the tail. Use the clear shipping tape to fix the string to the top of the balloon.
That’s it! Enjoy your DIY Easter Egg balloon!

- Burlap ribbon
- A rabbit silhouette
- Stencil film
- X-Acto craft knife

Print out your rabbit silhouette making sure that you make it as big as could fit on an 8 ½” x 11” sheet. Cut out the silhouette using your scissors. Next, lay it onto the stencil film then cut out with your X-Acto craft knife.

Here’s another fantastic idea that you can do with burlap. This DIY Burlap Bunny is inexpensive and simple to make as seen from freetimefolics.com’s picture tutorial below.
The materials for the DIY Burlap Bunny are:
- Two embroidery hoops, different sizes
- 1/3 metre burlap or more if your hoop is larger than 25 centimetres
- Fabric scraps
- Glue gun
- Electrical tape
- Cream or white yarn for pom pom
Using electrical tape, tape your hoops together as shown in the picture above. Tape them with the embroidery hoop’s tightening screws facing outwards so you can get burlap in.
Next, add the burlap starting from the bottom making sure the burlap is in tight. Trim the edges then hot glue the excess burlap to the hoop.
To create the ears, cut a 15-20 centimetre rectangle then cut down the centre about half way. Shape them to look like rabbit ears. Pull the bottom edges together then bunch them up. Once done, attach them to the top hoop.
Add some accessories such as a neck bow, a pom pom for the tail and a few rosettes for the ears. Have fun!
