Candy Colored Challenge Inspiration

Welcome to the May Arts blog.  The Ribbon Lady challenged us with a Candy Colored Inspiration photo and some yummy May Arts ribbon to match. 


IMG 5587Who knows candy colors better than the Easter bunny?  I decided to use the challenge ribbon allotment to create 3 projects that are quick and easy and that used up every bit of the ribbon.

First up is my thrifty Easter basket.  I nearly fell over when I saw the prices of real wicker baskets so I headed to my local thrift store where I found this sweet little basket for under a $1.

Supply List:


I gave it a coat of white primer and white spray paint, then wove the Candy Colored ribbons through the wicker and tied them in a simple square knot.   I gathered the Hot Pink Grosgrain on the sewing machine then hot glued it to the basket prior to tying the knot.

Next, I decided to wrap some plastic eggs filled with jelly beans and chocolate eggs and tie them up with the candy colored ribbons.

  • Clear plastic egg carton
  • May Arts Ribbons
  • Stamps – Papertrey Ink

Finally, I used the very last of the ribbons to make a quick card to complete my little Easter gift.
