Rosette Easter Basket

I shared this tutorial over at The Scrap Shoppe this weekend and TOTALLY FORGOT to let you all know that I would be over there! Forgive me! So I wanted to share it here as well for all of you just in case you still want a cute Easter basket idea.


Rosette Embellished Easter Basket


Here's the how-to:

Supplies:
-Easter basket (I bought a small felt one from Michael's)
-Colorful felt
-Ribbon
-Glue gun


First, make all the rosettes.

Cut a square out of felt, any size you like.
The bigger the square the bigger the flower and vice versa.

Then, turn the square into a circle. You can do wavy edges or just plain.

Then, cut a spiral in the circle.

Start at the end and roll the felt toward the center.

Roll until you get to the center and you should have a little flap of felt left over.

Place glue in the center and fold over the flap. This will hold the flower together.

All done!

Now repeat MANY times! lol
I think I made 70 larger rosettes with then an additional 30 smaller rosettes.
Your number will vary depending on the size of your flowers and how close you glue them together.


Now onto embellishing the basket.

I took some white ruffly ribbon and hot glued it to the handle.

Then, I took some eyelet ribbon and hot glued it to the inside rim of the basket.

Time to glue on the rosettes.
Start at the bottom and work your way around.
I did a dry fit to figure out my pattern and how many I would need to circle the basket.
Then just place hot glue on each rose and attach.

Work your way up the basket.

Add each flower until the whole basket is covered.
When I neared the top, I glued the smaller rosettes so you could still see the little green scallops.

Up close of the ribbon handle and the eyelet ribbon.

I love the little flowers and added details on this ribbon.

You don't have to cover the whole thing in flowers if you want.
You could always just do a row or two near the top. The possibilities are endless!

Fill it up with treats to enjoy or some colorful Easter eggs!



I'll be linking up to some of these parties.
