DIY Button Easter Basket

4 Materials
1 Hour

I've never really liked the cheesy Easter baskets they push at the big box stores. You know, the cheaply-made dyed ones.. the ones you always seem to need to re-buy every year because they're so easily damaged? Not to mention, they're pretty boring.

This year I decided to make a special one for our daughter. I LOVE buttons and thought that would make a very adorable theme for decorating an Easter

- buttons
- heavy button thread
- sewing needle


I started with a sturdy willow basket (we purchased ours off Amazon, but you could get one just about anywhere), and used a needle strung with heavy button thread to "sew" the buttons to the basket. Really I'm just tying them on, but the needle makes it a lot easier to thread the string around a few times.

Once I felt as though the button was good and secure (we don't want them coming off, remember they can be a choking hazard), I tied off the thread with a couple knots and cut off the excess string.

This project took less than half an hour and now we have a cute, special Easter basket to use for years to come.
