Easter basket made of scrap materials

In anticipation of the bright spring holiday of Easter, we will prepare gifts and souvenirs. For example, let's try to make a stand for an Easter egg. Of course, traditional wicker baskets are made with willow twigs, bark, straw, stems. Cardboard and crocheted bowls of modern needlewomen also do not surprise. However, we do not know how to knit or weave yet, so we will have to resort to a simpler way of making an Easter craft. Create such a stand for everyone.

Preparing for work: - plastic bottle - cloth flap - PVA glue - lace ribbon- scissors. In the process of work, it became clear that we could not do without threads with a needle.

Cut the base of the basket from a 0.33 l plastic bottle. The depth of the resulting glass is about 5 cm.For pens, leave strips up to 10 cm long and 1 cm wide. Next, make cuts along the edges of the glass and pry them off to the outside. To make the basket safe, we remove the sharp edges of the walls with scissors.

Now let's turn to cotton canvas. Look at what elegant pattern is depicted on the fabric. Yes, spring is ahead, sun, holidays! From the flap, cut a rectangle equal to the height and perimeter of the basket circumference. To calculate the specified dimensions, you can use a ruler and a mathematical formula, but we simply attach the fabric to the plastic base and determine the necessary parameters. Then we lubricate the plastic with glue and apply a cotton rectangle.

It is noteworthy that there are no traces of PVA on the crafts. These we need two strips to decorate the handle of the Easter basket.We grease the plastic on both sides with glue, and then we spiral out patterned stripes on it in a spiral. Remove excess centimeters of tissue with scissors.

While the PVA dries, we'll get a lace ribbon. The snow-white thread is decorated with a narrow satin strip. On the one hand, lace looks incredibly simple, and on the other - stunningly elegant. With this snow-white ribbon, we will decorate the bottom and top of the basket.  Easter basket
If in the first case it is enough to cut a piece of lace and using PVA to attach it around the perimeter of the basket, then to decorate the top you will need to use a needle and thread. We collect the tape with folds, periodically putting the finished frill to the bent walls of the basket. When enough wrinkles are typed, make a knot, cut the lace and thread. Lubricate the plastic of the PVA and glue the frill.  Easter basket
