  • Step 1. Cut out the basket base

    Cut the base template out with your scissors. Then trace the shape onto 1 piece of cardboard and 2 pieces of felt. Then cut these out.
  • Step 2. Stick the base together

    With the hot glue gun, carefully stick the felt panels to both sides of the cardboard.
  • Step 3. Create the basket sides

    You’ll need six pieces of felt for the sides. Use the hot glue gun to stick the pieces together to give you 3 double-sided panels.
  • Step 4. Make the small side walls

    Using your scissors, cut out the small side wall from the template. Then trace it twice onto 1 of the panels you have stuck together.
  • Step 5. Make the large side walls

    With your scissors, cut out the large side wall from the template. Then trace it onto the other 2 panels you have stuck together.
  • Step 6. Cut out your walls

    Now you can carefully cut out the 4 walls using your scissors.
  • Step 7. Stick the 4 walls to the base

    With the hot glue gun, stick the 4 walls carefully to the base to create the basket. You will also need to stick them to each other as well so that the basket is strong.
  • Step 8. Decorate your basket

    Once the glue has dried, it’s time to decorate. You can use coloured felt, pipe cleaners, pom poms or whatever you like.
  • Step 9. Fill it up with goodies

    Your basket is ready to fill up with Easter goodies.
