I received Hershey’s products to fill my DIY Tutu Easter Basket as well as a stipend from Global Influence. All thoughts and words are my own.

Awhile back my Aunt made Bubbles one of those cute tutu skirts.  They’re quite adorable, and Bubbles loved it.  She liked to put it on and dance and pretend to be things like fairies and butterflies.

DIY Tutu Easter Basket with HERSHEY'S Goodies #BunnyTrail

She’s grown out of it now, so I need to make her one.  In the process of gathering the materials to do so, I thought – hey, it’s almost Easter.  Wouldn’t a tutu Easter basket be really cute?  So I decided to pick up a basket along with a few lengths of tulle and make one along with the skirt.

DIY Tutu Easter Basket

A cute Easter basket has always been a special treat to celebrate the holiday.  My Mom started the tradition with her creations and it’s something I’m excited to have been able to continue with my own family.  I’m hoping that Bubbles loves her “fairy basket” as much as she enjoyed her skirt.

DIY Tutu Easter Basket and HERSHEY'S Goodies #BunnyTrail

The basket is simple to make: you just need a basket with space along the top to tie the strips, and tulle in the colors of your choosing.  Just cut a strips of the tulle (the long side of a yard), and fold them in half.  How many you’ll need will depend on the size of your basket, but I used about three dozen.

Make a loop at the top of your folded strip, then slide the free ends under the rim of your basket.  Bring them up around and tuck them down through the loop, tightening until they are secured to the basket.  That’s it!  Continue to do so all around the rim of the basket and you’ll be done.

DIY Tutu Easter Basket Filled with HERSHEY'S Treats #BunnyTrail

I filled the basket with an assortment of yummy HERSHEY treats.  Of course it had lots of REESE’S Peanut Butter eggs, Reaster Bunnies (so cute!), the fun HERSHEY Chocolate Bunny & Kisses combo pack, and some extra KISSES and ROLOS to round it out.

Because everyone likes treats for Easter, I have a fun HERSHEY’S prize pack for one of you!  To enter, tell me your favorite Easter tradition AND tell me your favorite Easter craft or recipe found on the website.  Giveaway closed.
