I am so excited to share with you my pretty in pink DIY Easter basket for girls. I wanted to come up with a creative, out-of-the-box DIY Easter basket, so here it is!
Would you believe that this charming pink basket started out as a clear plastic serving bowl?
With just some pink ruffle eyelet lace, white flower, and my glue gun, I turned a humble plastic bowl into a girly pink basket that’s just perfect for giving to the prettiest pink princess in your life.
Not only is this DIY Easter basket for girls unique and adorable, it’s a cinch to make in very little time.
DIY Pink Ruffle Easter Basket for Girls
Supplies: (may contain affiliate links)
- Clear plastic serving bowl (medium or large, depending on your desired basket size)
- Pink ruffled eyelet lace (purchased by the yard at the craft store- I used 5 yards for my large basket and a 40% coupon too!)
- Glue gun
- Fabric scissors
- Chocolate and candy
Step 1. I started with the bottom layer of lace on my basket so that I could overlap the different layers. Place the lace where you would like it to go so that the bottom of it just touches the ground and covers the bottom of the bowl.
Place a thin line of hot glue onto the bowl, and press down carefully on the lace to adhere. Repeat by gluing a few inches at a time, then pressing the lace firmly down onto the bowl. When you have gone all the way around the base of the bowl and finished the first layer, use fabric scissors to cut where the fabric overlaps.
Step 2. Now you will glue the top layer, which will make it easier to space out the middle ruffles.
Repeat the same procedure for the top layer of ruffles by placing a small line of glue across the top of the bowl, then pressing down onto the lace. Continue until the layer is complete, then cut off the excess lace.
Step 3. Measure with the extra lace how many more layers of lace you will need to finish the bowl. I used a total of 5 layers, but this number will vary. Continue gluing on lace until your basket looks complete.
Step 4. I wanted my basket to have handles son it would be easy for small hands to carry. I took the excess pieces of pink ruffle lace and cut two equal pieces to make a handle on each side of the Easter basket.
I used the glue gun to glue each handle end underneath the top layer of lace so that it wouldn’t be seen to create two handles.
Step 5. The next step was to fill my basket with treats! I used a mouth-watering variety of classic Hershey’s chocolate and candy to fill my basket.
The Hershey’s Solid Milk Chocolate Princess was the perfect fit for my pink girly DIY basket! What girl wouldn’t want to get that cute bunny in her basket? And it’s solid chocolate, not hollow, which is great for sharing with mom!
I’m a sucker for fluffy white bunny rabbits, so I just had to include the adorable Cadbury Hollow Milk Chocolate Bunny.
Whoppers Mini Robin Eggs Candy Carrots are another Easter basket essential. I also included Cadbury Creme Eggs, Jolly Rancher Easter Shaped Lollipops, Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans, and a Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates Bunny Cane. Yum yum yum!!
To make all this delicious Hershey’s chocolate and candy look great in the pretty pink basket, I added some Easter grass to give the candy a little added height, and then filled up the basket with lots of Easter treats.
Now my cute DIY Easter basket for girls is ready for the Easter bunny to deliver to a lucky little lady!
