Easter brings back so many wonderful memories from when I was little. The Easter Bunny always made Easter so special for my sister, brother, and I. My mom went all out from making the basket liners to filling our baskets with homemade Easter candy. You should taste her peanut butter filled chocolate eggs. YUM!
When searching for an Easter basket last year, I had trouble finding one that I liked, or if I did, the price was insane. So I thought I would ask my special Easter Bunny how she made the liners for our Easter baskets from when I was little. To my surprise, it sounded easy enough to make, and when I tried it on my own, it was! I thought I would share with you the easy no sew Easter basket liner courtesy of my mom.
All you need is a basket, fabric, scissors, and Tacky Glue.
1. Cut the fabric into a circle larger than the opening of the basket.
2. Squirt a bunch of Tacky Glue in the basket. I spread it out a bit with my fingers.
3. Press the fabric down to the center of the basket. Make the fabric as smooth and close to the basket as possible. (The glue will go through the fabric to your fingers. That’s is okay. It dries clear, and makes the fabric sturdier.)
4. This is the hardest part, but you will get it! Put glue around the edges of the basket rim. Carefully start folding and pushing the fabric up against the rim. Fold under the edges so they do not show. You will probably have to cut the fabric closer to the exact size you need. Once you go the entire way around, you are done! If you have a little girl, you can even add lace around the edge of the basket, and/or the handle.
5. Let it dry for 24 hours!
My Easter basket is still in great shape now even after so many years. I am so excited that I could create Baybah his own Easter basket just like my mom did for me.
