Make a Felt Flower Easter Basket
- Easter basket
- Hot glue gun
- Felt sheets in assorted colors
Step 1: Make Mums
Cut a 2-inch strip along the long edge of a sheet of felt. Fold felt in half, lengthwise. Apply a strip of hot glue along the bottom. Fold the piece in half along your fold line and secure with the hot glue. Next, cut 1/4-inch slits along entire length of felt. Make sure not to cut all the way through, leave a little room along the bottom.
Step 2: Cut Petals
To build the flower bud, roll the felt from one end to the other and add glue while you roll! Secure end with a dab of hot glue. You can make these flowers as large or as small as you like. Simply use a longer piece of felt.
Step 3: Make Ranunculus
To create a ranunculus flower, cut a 2-inch circle out of felt. Then, cut a swirl into the circle, starting at the edge, ending in the middle. Start rolling the felt from the middle of the circle, gluing along the way. Secure with glue at the end.
Step 4: Cut Leaves
Cut leaves out of green felt. It's good to have different leaf shapes and sizes. Keep the cuts rough and organic to mimic real leaves. If your basket still needs more flowers, use our easy instructions to learn how to make a felt peony.
Step 5: Glue on Flowers
Glue flowers on the basket with hot glue. Start with blooms on bottom of handle, and then create a bunch of flowers. It's easier to start with your largest flowers and fill in around them. Glue on leaves under the flowers.
