Revamp an Easter basket

You know I have a lot of Easter baskets stored in my basement. The dark, storage area is very conducive to basket growth.  As I take them out though, some of them seem a bit worse for wear. What is a gal to do?  Feathers, glue gun and just a few minutes is all you need to re-vamp it in style!

You will need:

An old Easter basket

Some dyed guinea feathers or regular colored feathers

Glue gun and glue sticks

1.     Heat up your glue gun.  Start adding feathers to the rim of the basket, overlapping as you go.  Make sure you attach the feathers in the same direction.  Vary the colors.  Note: Glue gun glue is very hot!  Be careful not to touch the places where you add the glue.  The feathers will stick pretty quickly.

2.     Work all around until you reach the first feather.  Add a dab of glue onto the base of a feather and stick it under the first feather to cover. 



  1. Clever idea! It makes me wish I'd kept a few of those baskets that I donated to the thrift store in January.

  2. I love feathers!! What a funky idea ;o)
