tutorial woven felt basket diy 49 Hi, if you want to learn how to realize a woven felt basket, this tutorial is just for you! πŸ™‚ The project is very simple and can be a nice Easter craft to do with kids! I took pictures with boiled eggs, but you can put what you prefer, maybe some delicious chocolate eggs will make your children happier, or you can use it for Easter egg hunt! Unfortunately today is a rainy day, I apologize for dark photos… I hope you’ll be patient and enjoy the tutorial!

Supplies:

– 15 felt strips 50 cm (long) x 2 cm (hight);

– hot glue;

– pegs or pins;

Check the strings: they must have the same jut out length, then secure them with glue, especially the corners!
