Easter Tutu Basket Tutorial:

-Gather your supplies and start cutting your tulle. I want my tutu to be 6" long, so I doubled the tulle and cut it at 12" long.

You may be asking, "How much tulle do I use?".

Just measure around your basket in inches and times that by 1.5. That's how many knots you'll need. Then, times "how many knots you need" by 3. That's how many strands of tulle you will need to cut.

My basket is 26" around. I will times 26 by 1.5. So, I will need 39 knots. Each knot will contain 3 strands of tulle, so I will need to cut a total of  117 strands of tulle (39 x 3). However, to save time, I cut all three spools of tulle at once; only needing to cut 39 times vs 117 times.

Simple enough right? 

-After your tulle is cut, get your 3/8" ribbon (or elastic) ready. Make sure it fits around your basket and you have enough slack to tie it in place at the end. 
-Line up 3 strands of your cut tulle and fold them in half. We're going to make a Larks Head Knot on our 3/8 ribbon (or elastic).

-Tie a Larks Head Knot on to your ribbon, like the picture above. 
*You can see how to tie a larks head knot from my TikTok video HERE.

-Do not tie your knots too tight. Each knot should be 3/4 of an inch. However, this is give or take. If you happen to make them tighter just use more knots at the end.

-All your Tutu knots should be added now to your ribbon (or elastic)

- (Optional) Tie 2 small single knots in your ribbon, like the photo above. This will hold your tulle in place, so it doesn't move back and forth. 

-With a hot glue gun, start gluing each knot to your basket.  Work your way all the way around.

- Tie your ribbon into a double/triple knot and cut away any excess ribbon.

- Cover the handle in tulle (or ribbon). 

-Tie 3 long strands of tulle at one side of the handle and wrap all three strands up and around your handle...

-Glue your tulle in place as you work your way up and around. 

Now, your handle matches your Easter Tutu Basket!

-I used satin ribbon to cover the top trim of the basket. Just glue in place. The more messy the better. It gives it a "ruffled" look.

- Make 2 pretty satin bows and glue to each handle.

Now, you have an unique one of a kind Easter basket! 

No one will ever know you ate ice cream out of it last night!
