I had so much fun teaching everyone how to make an adorable no sew tutu Easter basket on the Sudio 10 Tampa show that I thought I would share it on my blog. It’s so easy and inexpensive that you won’t believe it! What I love most about it is that the tutu is removable so your darling little one can wear it for hours of dance and imaginary playtime.  You can watch the tutorial on my YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/rDBgYeiuw2g

Supplies: Basket, Tulle, ribbon, silk flowers Hot glue gun, Spray paint (optional), Scissors
Step One: Spray paint your basket your desired color (optional).
Step Two: Cut your 5/8” ribbon your desired length making sure to add extra ribbon to the total length to tie the tutu when around the basket and a waistline when finish. Cut your tulle in assorted colors into 20” x 1.5” strips.
Step Three: Double your strips and loop them around your ribbon.
Step Four: Glue a flower onto a clothespin an place it at the center of your tutu.
Step Five: Tie your darling tutu around your basket and fill with goodies. You have just made a darling Easter basket with a removable tutu for your little one to enjoy and play with!

DIY on the FLY Spring Tablescape

DIY on the FLY_Spring_Tablescape_Julee_Ireland

So, everyone knows that I can not cook but it’s no secret I LOVE to build, craft, create and design a great tablescape.  With Easter just around the corner thought I would whip up something whimsical, festive and fun for my dining room table.  I made some adorable table decor using jars that I found at Michaels Craft Stores, some candle stick holders and quirky Easterish figurines that I found stuffed in a cabinet in my home. I really love the way they turned out! Hello…Adorable! They are so easy to make that you are not going to believe it! I have the full video tutorial on my YouTube channel here if you want to watch how I created my entire tablescape. https://youtu.be/HrDjrFIoOKw I have also posted the supply list and directions below if you want to bypass the video. Here’s how you do it!

Supplies: Assorted glass jars with lids, candle stick holders in desired heights, ceramic, paper or plastic seasonal figurines, animals, knobs etc. to decorate your lids, Hot glue gun, Spray paint in desired color, assorted candy, nuts etc. to fill your jars with.
Step One: Spray paint the jar lids, your desired decoration toppers for your lids and your candle stick bases in your desired color(s) and let dry.
Step Two: Use your hot glue gun to glue your jars to the candle stick bases and the decoration toppers to the center of your lids.
Step Three: Fill your jars with your desired candy or nuts and display.
Step Four: Create a display using your jars on your table or give them as a unique homemade gift to someone special.
