I decided to whip up a few of these easter baskets the other day.


I made it by soaking crochet string in fabric starch and then wrapping it around a balloon. Then you wait a day or two till its dry, pop the balloon, cut a hole in it, decorate and smash the bottom in a little so it sits flat.

The string I used on this one is variegated (I think that's the right word) with a pastel pink, blue, green and yellow, which I thought was perfect for Easter

Anywho, on to pictures.....

Thanks!

You totally should they're fun to make and its so cool when you get to pop the balloon and it keeps its shape. But make sure you have plenty of paper down cuz they're crazy messy. I also found that soaking the whole spool of string in starch and leaving it as one continuous piece worked way better than cutting individual pieces and dunking them in starch as i went, they kept getting all tangled when I did that
