usually, my inspiration has been birthed from the rows of pinterest photos; however, this week, i was inspired by my favorite superstore: target.
last tuesday, i stopped after work to pick up an easter basket for ava. after scouring the easter aisles, i found a few cute baskets in pastel shades with fabric accents, but the price was a little earth-shattering. i couldn’t bring myself to paying 20 dollars for what appeared to be something i could make on a sunday afternoon. my real inspiration were the basket charms that they had to adorn and personalize your baskets – monogrammed letters, chicks, and bunnies were placed upon felt and fabric, ready to hang on the side of your basket for a little personal flair.
i promptly left target and jetted over to the dollar tree, where i picked up a 1.00 rainbow-colored basket. this morning, i spray painted it with leftover blue spray paint we used for our deck project last spring:
i snagged some cheery cherry blossom fabric from the 1.00 bin at ac moore a few weeks ago, waiting for the perfect project to use it – and the time had arrived. i hot glued the fabric around the edges and lined the inside of the basket.
i used some circle felt pieces and lace to make a basket charm, attaching it with a bow clip for versatility:
a string of pearls spelled an A for my little ava-girl and hangs from the top of the basket:
and when she awakes from her nap, i’m sure she’ll be excited to see a sweet bunny family living in her new easter basket until the real easter bunny comes to visit in a few weeks.
happy week 11!
