No-Sew Bunny Basket
Requiring no sewing, this bunny basket is a no fuss way to make a festive tote for all your Easter goodies.
How We Did It
Take your felt sheet (ours measured 12 in. x 12 in.), and fold it in thirds to create a 4 in. x 12 in. long rectangle. Press firmly along the creases. Open the sheet and fold it into thirds the other way. Press firmly along these creases as well.
Following the crease lines, trim
two 4-inch slits on opposite ends. If you need help following the
crease lines, use a pencil to lightly trace the lines so you can cut
The felt sheet should now have
three square flaps on opposite ends. Align the three flaps on one end
together to create three sides of the basket. Staple the felt together
neatly along the top. Tuck the loose bottom flap in underneath. Adult
supervision may be required!
Do the same for the opposite end. You should now have the basic bottom of the basket.
To make the handle, pick three pipe cleaners of different colors. Braid these together.
To attach the handle to the
basket, pinch together the folded flap on the side of the basket.
Using scissors, make a small quarter-inch long cut about 1-inch below
the edge of the basket. Do the same for the opposite end.
Take your pipe cleaner handle
and insert one end into the hole and fold up the ends on the inside to
secure it. Do the same for the opposite end.
You now have your basket! Use
extra felt or pipe cleaners to decorate your new basket. Try adding
ears, a nose, and a bunny tail.
