MOTHER's DAY CRAFT: Bloomin’ Baskets

Mama's Day is almost here. What are you gonna give your mom to show her how much you care? A springy basket is pretty 'n' perf for the occasion. Moms love clever ways to organize their things, and you can help her do it with some style. Transform any everyday basket into a chic catch-all.


What You'll Need:

Basket
Hot-glue gun
Glue sticks
Fabric scraps
Dried or silk flowers
Ribbon
Scissors


What You'll Do: 

1. Plug in your hot-glue gun, and have the glue sticks handy. Have an adult help you use the gun safely. Hot glue on the hands hurts!
2. Dot the inside of the basket with hot glue. Quickly lay fabric scraps inside. Push, tuck and glue to fit the fabric neatly.
3. If your basket has a handle, wrap it tightly with ribbon and secure the ends with hot glue.
4. Whether you are using artificial or dried flowers, you’ll need to cut off the stems. Hot-glue the flower buds around the outside of the basket.
