How to make an Easter Tutu Basket. Cute Baby Girl Easter Basket Tutorial.

DIY Easter Tutu Basket Tutorial

Here's a step by step guide on how to make an Easter Tutu Basket. The perfect Easter Basket for a little girl!  I finally had time to create a new Easter Tutu Basket so I made this tutorial for you.

You can use a dollar tree Easter basket or turn an old ice cream container in to an Easter basket, like I did.
You will need:
Craft Scissors
1/2" ribbon and 3/8" ribbon (I used Satin)
2-3 spools of Tulle (6" x 25 yards) 
Measuring Tape
Ice Cream container or plastic Easter basket
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Step by Step
Easter Tutu Basket Tutorial:

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

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

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

My basket is 30" around. I will need 30 knots. Each knot will contain 3 strands of tulle, so I will need to cut a total of  90 strands of tulle.

Simple enough right?

 After your tulle is all cut...
 gather 3 strands of tulle, line them up, and fold them in half.

Cut your ribbon 6" longer than you need. My basket was 30" so I cut my ribbon at 36".

 Tie a Larks Head Knot onto your ribbon, like the picture above. Here's how to Tie a Larks Head Knot, from Wind Dance Kites.

 Do not tie your knots too tight. We want them to be 1" per knot. If you happen to make them tighter just use more knots at the end.

 All your Tutu knots should be added now.

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.

 You could stop here if you'd like, but I need that blue handle gone.

Start by tying 3 long strands of tulle at one side of the handle and wrap all three strands up and around your handle...
Glue your tulle as you work your way 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.

 Make 2 pretty satin bows and glue to each handle.

 Now, you have an unique one of a kind Easter basket. It's a cute little girl Easter basket! No one will ever know you ate ice cream out of it last night.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you have tulle left over, you should make this Easter Egg Tutu Wreath to match.
