I wanted to title this post “I Made the Cutest Thing Ever!” but that seemed a little much. But I do think this is the Cutest Thing Ever…or at least the Cutest Mossy Easter Basket ever.
And it was easy. Messy, but easy. Here’s what you need:
- A basket with a handle
- A package of sheet moss from the craft store
- Jute twine
- Hot glue
There’s no science to this process. Just cut pieces of moss and hot glue them to the basket.
Don’t worry about making it perfect.
Overlap the pieces and fill in any holes with small pieces of moss.
Wrap your jute twine all around the handle and hot glue it in place as you go. You WILL burn your fingers. I suggest using low melt hot glue. Then you’ll only get 2nd degree burns.
Ta Da! How cute is your mossy basket? I love mine holding some fake eggs. I think it would make a fantastic centerpiece or hostess gift if you use it to hold a pretty plant.
Did I mention that this is a messy project? If it’s warm where you are, I suggest doing this outside. I’m still finding mossy bits in my kitchen.
