Easy Lighted Christmas Baskets

This is a quick and easy gift that packs a big punch. This will light up anyone's Christmas and is a great gift because holiday decorations are always appreciated. Get the kids together and gather your own pinecones it will make for a great outing.

Time:

30 minutes or so

Materials:

  • 1 loose weave basket
    I got mine at Walmart.
  • 1 Walmart bag of pinecones
  • Ad
  • 2 sprays of silk holly and berries
  • 1 set of 20 lights the kind that plug in (not battery operated)

Directions:

  1. First take the lights and push the plug from the inside of the basket to the outside.
  2. Now fill your basket with pinecones. You will find that you can interlock the pinecones so they stay in the basket.
  3. Now weave in your set of Christmas lights.
  4. Take the sprays of holly and berries and cut apart and arrange in the basket. You don't want a fire hazard so keep the silk holly away from the lights if possible.
  5. Add a big bow to the basket and you are done.

WE DID THIS ONLY WITHOUT THE HOLLY BERRIES AND LET ME TELL YA HOW CUTE IT IS WHEN IT'S PLUGGED IN

AND BOUGHT THE CINNAMON SCENTED PINECONES FROM WALMART

THIS IS INEXPENSIVE YET VERY CUTE FOR HOME OR EVEN AS A GIFT
