Blessing Bear Basket

This is an amazingly inexpensive gift, party favor, etc. You will want to make several and keep one for yourself!


  • miniature basket (party favor size) usually sold in multiples in the wedding aisle of craft store
  • miniature flower bunches, dried flowers, whatever you prefer
  • tiny jointed teddy bear
  • 1/4 inch spool ribbon - I got mine at Michaels they have adorable designs and sayings on tiny cloth ribbon in their silk flower department.
  • embellishments - I used a tiny piece of vintage embroidery and vintage cut out.
  • glue gun
  • glue


  1. Arrange flowers in basket placing dots of glue at the bottom of basket to secure.
  2. Tuck in embellishments, and add a dot of glue to hold.
  3. Wrap ribbon around basket, gluing as you go.
  4. Finally tuck in your teddy!

These can be made for showers, weddings, and other gifts. Don't forget to check out thrift stores and the scrapbook department, button/embellishment department, and your own stash. The possibilities for what you can tuck in are endless. This craft takes just a few minutes to make :)
