Unicorn Easter Basket Ideas

My daughter is obsessed with unicorns and so are my nieces. So I wanted to incorporate that into a cute Easter basket idea. They also love JoJo Siwa and since she loves all things unicorn, I thought the two could go hand in hand if you are looking for some basket filler ideas! So if you're child is like mine and a little unicorn obsessed, then you'll love this Unicorn Easter Basket Tutorial and stuffer ideas.



I originally saw the idea of creating an Easter Basket Tutu from my friend Jamie who blogs at The Denver Housewife. She has done so many cute ones including a Shopkins Easter Basket. And I am all about reusing items found around the house to create new projects. I think it is more economical to do it that way, but you could very easily buy many of the items featured in Target's Dollar Spot or on Amazon like she did. I will try and link to some similar items. My mother-in-law gave me the tulle I used and I had the unicorn topper from some old party supplies. That's why I decided to recreate this look for a Unicorn theme.




The basket I used was one I had found in the Target dollar spot a few years ago. My children have personalized baskets and I didn't want my daughter to take it to school. So let’s get to the nitty gritty on what to do. So to start out making this basket the first thing you will need to do is measure your basket from the top to bottom like pictured, but tighter to the basket. Make sure you measure tight up against it. I didn’t and it turns out fine, but not as full of a shirt as I would have liked. Take that number, double it, and add 1 inch as the tulle will flair out a bit and you'll want it to touch the bottom. My basket wasn't ideal to work with, but it did end up working and looking pretty cute. But you might need a wire or plastic basket for better more seamless results.


How many pieces of tulle you'll need depends on two factors; 1. If you want a fuller skirt and 2. the diameter of your basket. If you want a fuller, more fluffy skirt, then you will use two pieces of tulle at a time. To tie your basket, fold the tulle in half and loop through bottom of the top, pull the opposite ends over the top, and create a slip knot. Repeat until the whole basket is surrounded. I had to use a crochet hook to push my tulle through. Like I said before, this wasn't an ideal basket (in my opinion) to use. But it did end up working and looking cute. But because it wasn't ideal, I had to shove the tulle really hard through the basket making it more time consuming than it needed to be. This is also the way you can make an actual tutu for a child to wear. They just use elastic headbands with this method and longer strands of tulle.

Once the tutu part is done, you can either hot glue a unicorn topper on like I did or not. It is really up to you. You could also add beads, stickers, or glitter to the tulle. You could use different colors than white. Really the possibilities are endless.
