Grab your scissors and cut the large pattern of the box and basket handles out in your charcoal felt. Then you want to secure the corners of the pattern box and set to the side.
Then follow by cutting out the egg pattern using the white felt. As well as the egg decorative pieces in whatever color you want.
Now comes assembling your Easter basket, simply align the decorative egg pieces onto your cut out egg shape, and hot glue the back side of the strips and press down. Do this until you have your complete egg design done.
Next take your egg that is fully decorated, and face it down. Apply hot glue to the back side, and secure it to the top section of the cut box.
Now you want to work on assembling your box, by adding hot glue to one corner at a time and forming the corners. Work on one corner at a time, as the hot glue will dry fast.
Add a bit of glue to the ends of the long rectangular piece and attach it to the inside of
felt box to form the basket handle.
Once the basket has had time to set up, then fill your basket with treats or goodies, to give to your loved ones.

Can I Sew The Corners of the Easter Basket Instead of Hot Glue
Absolutely. If you are good at sewing, skip the hot glue and reach for a needle and thread. You can have this sewn up in around 20 minutes if you want. I just prefer the hot glue method, as it is no fuss, and for those who are not the best at sewing, it works well.
