DIY Easter basket liner

It's easy to pretty-up an Easter basket with a cute, DIY, liner made from up-cycled fabric. I still have an Easter basket from childhood (the one on the left below). It needed a little pretty-up. 
It was fair weather this past weekend, so I spray painted outdoors.  Two baskets took two whole cans of spray paint, yikes. I sprayed the inside first. Took my dog for a walk and let that dry.
Then flipped and sprayed the bottoms.

I reused the bicycle basket liners I made last Spring. You can see how I made them here.

I trimmed a bit of fabric off the bottom of the gray and white stripe liner. Re-stitched the bottom closed. Then added box corners, so it fit the basket better. 
This pink and gray, girls top, size large, is a perfect fit for my large egg shaped basket. 
I made this liner just like my bicycle basket liners, except I stitched box corners.

Now all we need is some Easter candy!

  2. Thank you for adding this to the Spring Craft Blog Hop collection! I think this idea is so perfect for mamas like me that loathe the fake Easter grass. I especially love how you repurposed a shirt for your gray and pink liner! I wanted to let you know that I've featured this at my Friday Favorites this week. Have a hoppy Easter weekend!
