These fabric mache Easter baskets are a kid-friendly craft you don’t want to miss!
Hey everyone! It’s Kari from Paper Wings again, with a fun easy craft for Easter! These fabric mache Easter baskets make great gifts and decor as well as being great Easter treat baskets for the kids. It can be a bit messy with the Mod Podge, so you can do this outside on the sidewalk/driveway, or on a protected surface inside.
You will need:
- Saran wrap
- Mod Podge (homemade works great too)
- Foam Sheet (any color you want)
- Bowl, or basket (anything smooth and basket shaped)
I made two at a time, for my two littles, so everything is doubled.
Trace eggs shapes onto your fabric, and have the kiddos cut them out.
Saran wrap whatever surface you’ve chosen. Bowls and pots work great. I found these cute dollar store garbage cans, which I can reuse as toy bins when we’ve cleaned up.
Have your little helpers help you cover your bowl with the fabric, Mod Podging the layers as you go until you have the desired shape.
As you can see, we didn’t go all the way to the top edge of the cans we used. You can make your fabric mache Easter basket as tall as you’d like! Once you’ve got the size/shape you want, let it dry overnight, outside is best.
Remove the dried fabric from the bowl, and peel away the saran wrap.
Cut strips of your foam sheet for the handles. Hot glue or sew them in place.
And there you have it. Fabric Mache Easter baskets just in time for the Easter Bunny! Have a wonderful holiday!
