Do you love handmade gifts as much as I do? I love the thought and love behind gift giving. These snuggle bunnies are so cute. Tip: edit the tutorial to put a little pocket in the front with a felt carrot or flower for changing out the essential oils.

Easter Egg Hunt Mantel

Do you have certain family traditions for celebrating Easter?

Everyone in our family has a holiday they host and somehow we ended up with Easter. Each year, our Easter gathering includes a traditional Easter dinner and an Easter egg hunt…

Make it the best Easter with Michaels! They have everything from eggs & baskets, to bunney décor and more!

My April Michaels’ Makers’ challenge is “Easter decor” so I decked out our mantel with an ‘egg hunt’ theme.

Easy DIY Personalized Easter Basket Liner

Happy Spring! With a new grand-baby in the family, I can’t help but get all giddy about making up an Easter basket this year. As you know, I love to personalize gifts and with just a t-shirt and a DIY iron-on vinyl, this liner is super easy to make! 

DIY personalized Easter basket liner tutorial @diyshowoff

What I used:

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

What you’ll need: sewing machine, scissors, straight edge, computer/vinyl cutter, iron. 

What I did:

Lay inside out t-shirt flat and using a straight edge, draw a line beneath the t-shirt arms. This is the sewing guide…simply a straight line. 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Sew along the line. 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Then cut straight across above the sewn line (right below the armpits of the t-shirt). 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Flip right side out. 

Place the seam inside of the basket and fold the edges of the t-shirt over the basket to create a liner. Measure how much room you have horizontally and vertically to get an idea of your iron on design’s size. I kept mine under 2″ high by 7″ wide.

Using the Silhouette Design Studio software, I created a graphic with name and a cute little bunny shape.

You’ll need to mirror the text and image by right clicking and selecting “flip horizontally”. 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Double check the size. (One sheet of iron-on vinyl is going to make a LOT of decals!) 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Load vinyl into the machine shiny side down. The shiny side is actually the transparent cover. Vinyl is the matte side (facing up). 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Send the design to ‘cut’. Adjust setting for heat transfer material and “cut”.

When cutting is complete, remove vinyl from machine. Trim to a manageable size. 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Weed away the excess vinyl. The decal will show a backwards design on the transparency. 

personalized Easter basket liner @diyshowoff

Smooth out the t-shirt liner with the open end facing you. Place the iron on decal towards the bottom, centered.

Cover with a cotton cloth (or the scrap t-shirt material) and iron according to instructions that came with the iron on vinyl.

Carefully remove the transparency film.

Line the Easter basket and fill. Easy, right? Cute too!

It’s actually a pretty easy DIY project for any time of the year, any basket or to personalize a gift basket for any occasion.
