Bacon and Egg Easter Basket
If idle hands are the Devil’s playground, then this is a truly sinful craft project. I have been mostly unemployed for about a week now and already I am looking for new hobbies to keep me occupied. I think I have finally found my calling…Bacon Sculpting.
Why make an Easter basket out of bacon? Why not? It was a fun way to kill a Saturday…fun and tasty!
While the base was baking, I made the handle and some bacon flowers to embellish the basket. To form the handle, I used two pieces of bacon. I twisted each piece into a spiral, then intertwined them at the top to join them together.
To finish, I attached the handle to the base with hot glue. That felt like cheating, but I couldn’t think of a better way to do it. I glued the flowers at the base of the handle on each side. I used chives for the Easter grass and place the eggs gently inside.
I hope you enjoyed my silly bacon craft project! Happy Easter everyone!
