Fun DIY Easter Basket!

 Starting with a wire basket I found at a thrift shop...I loved the handle! 
 I used styrofoam eggs, and used pinking shears to cut lots of fabric strips.
I prefer to use Fabric-Tac glue, it seems to work the best.

 Starting at the top of egg glue 2 strips in a "X" fashion

Then work the next strips overlapping until egg is completely covered.
I also used snippets of lace and crochet on some of the eggs. 
Added some raffia to the basket and viola!
Shabby Eggs!
