Santa DIY Christmas Baskets Supplies
- Christmas Red Acrylic Paint
- Sponge Paint Brush
- Basket (s) in the size and shape of your choice.
- Black Ribbon (cut to the width of your basket plus an inch)
- Fabric glue or a glue gun
- Buckle (or button for a buckle)
- White Fluffy Boa (optional)
- Glue Gun
Santa DIY Christmas Baskets Directions
Allow paint to dry.
Thread the buckle onto the black ribbon. (Skip this step if you are using a button. Just glue the button on the ribbon after the ribbon is on the basket)
Begin gluing the ribbon to the side of the basket until the ends meet and overlap. Trim any excess ribbon if you want.
If you have room on top, glue the white fluffy boa around the top of the basket.
Now you are ready to fill your basket with a Christmas gift or with Christmas cookies. This is such a cute way to give a gift. I think your gift wrapping really shows that you care. I know I love it when I receive a gift where the giver has done something special with the gift wrap. It is like saying, “Hey, you are important.” It is fun and it feels good.
So if you are looking to really brighten up somebody’s Christmas, wrap their gift in one of these cute Santa DIY Gift Baskets. It is just creative giving that sends a great message.
