DIY Bunny Trick Or Treat Basket

Just a few days left to get ready for the ghosts and ghouls friends. Or in our case, little bunny rabbits :) My little one is going to be a little bunny this year. It’s something we just came up with this week (talk about waiting until the last minute…) and it’s easily put together so I decided to spend a little time on making a little trick or treat basket to go with her costume this year!
DIY Bunny Trick Or Treat Basket_edited-1How cute is this little bunny trick or treat basket? It was so EASY and really fun to craft together, I even put together a little tutorial to share today!

Bunny Treat BasketYou need an empty bucket. I’ve been saving this one for a few weeks knowing I wanted to make a trick or treat basket for P. You could also grab one of those $1 pumpkin baskets and cover it easily as well. Other supplies you’ll need are fabric (about 1/2 yard), hot glue gun, and embellishments (will differ depending on your character).Bunny Trick or Treat BasketTo cover the bucket, I laid out a piece of fabric, folded over to make it a bit thicker, then folded the ends into the basket, hotgluing it into place. Bunny Rabbit Treat Basket Keep folding and hot gluing the fabric into the bucket until you make it all the way around.

To do the ears I just folded a pipe cleaner in half, and then glued the ends together and bent the ears until I got the arch I wanted.Halloween-Trick-Or-Treat-BasketNext, I hot glued the ears to the front part of the bucket on the inside (about a half inch down).DIY Halloween Treat BasketAnd no bunny is complete without a poofy bunny tail! After creating a quick yard pom pom, I hot glued the bunny tail in place.Bunny Treat BucketNext I embellished the face with all sorts of goodies: Pom pom eyes, button nose with yarn whiskers and a pipe cleaner mouth. The last step is to ad a  handle. I cheated and just safety pinned a braided piece of fabric on either side to create a handle. Next year I’ll be sure to make proper holes in the bucket before doing all the embellishing since she’ll be bigger and simple safety pins may not hold.
