This Easter season, make a basket that your husband (or any special man in your life) will fully appreciate! Our DIY “Beer Bunnies,” gift-labeled snacks, and sports-ball Easter eggs (filled with “hugs” and “kisses”) are the perfect for filling a macho basket he’s sure to love.
- Six-pack of beer
- Chalkboard spray paint
- Wood-crate tray or basket
- Chalk-ink marker
- Kraft paper
- Linen fabric
- Clear plastic boxes
- Glue dots
- White yarn
Step 1: Spray paint the six-pack carrying case with chalkboard paint and let dry for at least an hour.
Step 2: Using a chalk-ink marker, write “Beer Bunnies” and the message of your choice on the front of the case.
Step 2: Trace the ears onto linen with a pencil, and scissor a smaller version by cutting inside the lines.
Step 3: Use glue dots to attach the linen to the bunny ears, then fasten the ears to the bottles with additional dots.
Step 1 -2: Wrap yarn around the outer two prongs of a fork until it is thick, and cut when you’ve reached your desired size.
Step 3: Thread a small, separate piece of yarn through the prongs and tie a double knot around the center.
Step 4: Remove yarn from fork and cut through all the loops.
Step 5: Trim any uneven bits and roll the ball in your hands to help give it shape.
Step 6: Attach the yarn pom to each bottle with a glue dot to create the “tails.”
SWEET AND SALTY EASTER SNACKS
A clever gift-basket trick is to buy some simple treats from your local market and pour them into gift boxes made of clear plastic. Print labels on your home computer and attach them with ribbon to instantly make pedestrian snacks look like luxuries.
No one is ever too old for an Easter basket, so get creative and make one for your man this holiday season!Print
