DIY TUTU EASTER BASKET-2

As I mentioned last week, the Princess Fairy loves a good Easter Egg hunt during the spring. Our family always have a blast but we’ve encountered the same problem for the past two years. The Princess Fairy’s basket gets confused with other kids baskets. To most adults, this isn’t a big deal but it’s major for little kids. To eliminate any confusion and ensure that our easter egg hunt is nothing but fun this year, I decided to make The Princess Fairy a special Easter egg basket. Not only is there no way her basket will get mixed up with another child’s basket, the basket I made fits her personality perfectly. The Princess Fairy is fancy, girly, fashionable and fun. Besides,  she’s a caring girl who loves her brother and family dearly. That’s probably why she loves Disney Junior Sofia The First. Sofia The First is very kind and always thinks about everyone around her. Since that’s one of her favorite Princesses I decided to make a basket inspired by her. The Princess Fairy loves a pretty tutu so I also wanted to add that element to the basket. I made her a Disney Junior Sofia The First Tutu Basket. Now, I’ll admit this basket took me a few hours to complete but it’s so pretty I believe it was worth every minute.  I know that I am not the only mom with a fancy princess twirling around the house, so I wanted to share this DIY so your girls can have a fancy basket too.

To make your tutu easter basket you’re going to need:

Tulle (I used lavender and white with glitter, of course)

Instructions:

1. Cut tulle into pieces 14 1/2 inches by 4 inches long.

2. Group into pieces of three. I used 2 white pieces and one lavender piece.

3. Insert the tulle grouping into the spaces at the top of the basket.

4. Pull about 4 inches in and they make a knot on the inside of the basket.

5. Repeat this process until you have inserted the groups of tulle on the entire circumference of the basket.

6. Next, I packed The Princess Fairy’s basket with Princess Sofia Easter goodies and toys that I found at Walmart’s Easter supplies section.

When my son came home and saw the basket he said “WOW! WOW!” so now I’m going to have to make him a custom basket too.

  • Love, love, love LOVE! Nori would flip her wig over this. I always make their Easter Baskets myself but that only included the items put on the inside. I never thought to actually design the basket. I’m so doing this.

    • RattlesandHeels

      Oh yes! Nori needs a tutu basket like yesterday.

    I am totally doing this! We are going to a special Easter weekend with cousins so I will dress up her Z’s basket from last year. I love Princess Sofia and your Princess Fairy is just as kind as her.

    • RattlesandHeels

      Yes, this is the PERFECT way to recycle last year’s basket!

  • WOW!! Your basket is SO beautiful! I so wish I could create something like this but I’m not the creative type. I know your daughter is going to love it and her basket will definitely be one of a kind.
