Create a mini Easter basket made from a box using Duck Tape®, lace trim, and ribbon.
I think I’ve mentioned a time or two about our endless rolls of Duck Tape® around the house. The kids enjoy using them for all sorts of crafts and activities. We’ve made wallets, flowers, wrapped gifts with it, and used it for a few games. Have you tried the glow-in-the-dark Duck Tape®? My kids love that stuff! Using these bright and colorful rolls of tape I whipped up a few Spring crafts that are easy to make with kids just in time for Easter. Can we talk about this floral and gingham hexagon print? Swoon! This has to be my favorite Duck Tape® print EVER! I think the pastels are perfect for Spring crafts and I immediately thought of making an Easter basket with it.
After covering the box with tape I glued lace trim around the edge and a bow to the center.
For the handle I folded a 12 inch strip of tape in half (top and bottom to the center) then glued it to the inside of the box. Note: use a small amount of low temp hot glue to avoid burning through tape.
I also made flowers using the white and mini green and black Duck Tape® rolls.
To make the flowers I layered two 12inch strips of tape, slightly overlapping. Tucking one of the exposed edges down I then used scissors to create a fringe on the tape. I stopped about a quarter of an inch away from the bottom. I then wrapped the tape around a striped paper straw to create the flower. (Note: I covered the tip of the straw and created a smaller fringe with the mini Duck Tape® first). The last craft I made were these mini Duck Tape® bows that are perfect for embellishing party favors and treat boxes. To make them I folded the mini tape in half, then pinched the center and placed a thin piece of tape to hold it together. I used the same method of the handle above..folding from top to center and bottom to center to avoid having exposed edges.
