3 yds. of ribbon of choice
Embellishment to basket ( Example- flower)
1 1/2-2 yds. of coordinating tulle (depending on how full you want basket)
I first looped the coordinating ribbon on the stem of the basket.
Before I started wrapping I put a good knot in it. Then I wrapped the ribbon all along the basket stem.
Then once I got to the other side of the basket stem I put another good knot in it.
I then took a 4 inch wide strip of the tulle and folded it back and forth like so. (I got ahead of myself and cut a notch out of the left side, just ignore that.)
Then you fold your tulle rectangle over and cut the corners off of of each side of the top of the rectangle, your cutting on the fold.
Then you unfold that rectangle again and tie it into the ribbon you left on the basket. Here you can pull out the tulle and "fluff" it into a bow, just like you do when you make a homemade ribbon.
Now take some form of embellishment. I picked out some flowers and I cut the stems much shorter.
Here I folded up the stem even smaller and I would wrap it with floral tape to secure and keep any sharp edges from little fingers.
Before I applied the flowers I pulled out the tulle making it look just like you would a ribbon you have made. Then I tied in the flowers with a good knot and then I finished up with a bow in front of the flowers.
Now Your ready to stuff your basket with the rest of the tulle. Just cut it up into small (10"x10") squares. They don't have to be perfect. The tulle makes a fantastic filler and it cushions the eggs.
