DIY Easter Baskets.

Did you see my Homemade Easter round up post? One of my suggestions was homemade Easter baskets and this weekend I got Evie and Jenson together and we settled down to a bit of paper mache-ing and made these beauties!

You can find all the instructions HERE at Red Ted Art. (Though instead of using the 'cooked' mache paste we used a cold mache paste)

I didn't manage to take any photo's of the before, seriously paper mache with my 2 monster's? Believe me it was MESSY!

Saying that though they did really enjoy it and have since made paper mache eggs too! I actually think this is my new fave craft!

But anyways here are the finished products complete with feather wings, felt beaks, pom-pom feet and pom-pom noses. 

These are the cutest Easter baskets I have ever seen...

Will you be making any home made goodies for Easter?
