Easter Basket "AM Style"

I look forward to our annual Easter Craft project on AM Style. This year, we decorated Easter Baskets!

I knew I wanted “yellow” as the inspiration for my basket. A trip to the dollar store and I was set! I had seen tutu baskets on pinterest, so I decided to make my basket a yellow chick wearing a tutu!

I used a template that I found on-line to create my chick’s head and wings. As an added touch, I gave her eyelashes!

I looped 12” strips of tulle through the basket to create the tutu and added flowers and ribbon as embellishment. Then I cut out my chick’s face, wings and feet, and glued them to the decorated basket. Once she was done, I filled my chick basket with yellow grass, eggs, a chocolate bunny and other goodies.

My “Yellow Chick Easter Basket” turned out as cute as I had hoped. Now all she needs is a name -- what do you think I should call her?

I’m thinking Buttercup, or Banana Cream, or Daffodil, or Sunshine...

 

Happy Easter!

That design is such a good idea, any small child would love that yellow chick and of course the candy in it.

Leah,

That basket is so adorable....I love it!!  You are very talented...you may want to look into making Easter baskets on the side (like you have spare time, right?!).  If I saw a table of these adorable baskets, I wouldn't hesitate to buy!!!

I love the name "Buttercup" you chose.  Looking forward to seeing all the creations on AM Style....but you should get first prize, in my opinion...even though I haven't seen the other baskets, ha!  Yours is going to be hard to top!!

Have a blessed Easter, Leah!
