How is all that partying going this week ladies? I, personally am havin a blast! What is prize #12 in the UBP? the To kick off today's shindig here at Georgikids, I have a sweet Easter craft for you to make! How cute are these little doily baskets?

To Make:

You will need a stiched (not paper) doily, a bowl in the shape of the basket you would like to make, fabric stiffener.

1) Soak the doily in bowl of fabric stiffener until saturated.

2) Remove doily from stiffener and place over bowl (bowl is turned upside down) to form a basket shape.

3) Allow to dry. Carefully peel dried doily basket from bowl.

There you have it! Wasn't that the easiest craft ever? And sooo cute! Just add some little "nest" grass and some tiny eggs (candy or otherwise) and maybe a little birdie to perch on the side!! Now isn't that just adorable???

Don't forget to post a comment answering the question in this post regarding the UBP (the question is hidden in ea. post) and leaving a comment on your blog about my Shindig here to be entered into a drawing to win a cute hair bow or set of clippies from my etsy shop!!! Will give away tomorrow night to 3 lucky winners!!
