1. Download the Easter Basket Project Pattern. Use the large square, small square, small hexagon, and butterfly pegboards for your project. If you’re using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place all the beads for the design.

2. Cover the completed design with the ironing paper. Keeping the iron level, gently iron the beads in a circular motion for about 10 seconds to fuse the beads evenly. Ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Warning: Parents—the ironing must be done by an adult only. Some irons may emit steam. Please keep children at a safe distance.

3. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Lift your design from the pegboard; flip the design over and repeat step #2. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

4. Assembly: Basket: Glue the buds to the basket as shown. Insert the block of oasis foam, and fill the rest of the basket with Easter grass.

5. Bunny: Glue googly eyes in place and tie a bow around the bunny's neck with a pink chenille stem.

6. Flowers: Insert a lime chenille stem through a lower hole of each tulip to create a flower stem. Insert a lime chenille stem through the center of each daisy, making a small loop for decoration at the flower center. Insert the flower stems into the oasis foam block and arrange as desired.

7. Position the bunny and eggs with chick in the basket.
