How to make Ninja Turtle crafts

Making Your Ninja Turtle Baskets

Making Ninja Turtle Bucket

Measure out your ribbon so that it fits around your basket and has enough left over on each side to tie in the back. (we left about 6-10 inches on each side.) Then using both your hands and your child for assistance (or vice versa depending on the age) carefully line up your ribbon around the top of the basket (leaving about an inch from the top). Hot glue 1-2 drops as you go and pull tightly to get rid of any folds.

How to Make TMNT BasketsOnce you have hot glued around to the back, leave about 2-3 inches in between each side of the ribbon for room to knot them together. Once you have them knotted you can cut the end of your ribbon for a tiny bit of flare. Now you are ready for googley eyes!

Ninja Turtle Craft

Our googley eyes were a tad big but we think they made the buckets that much cuter! You can choose any size that you think fit best. You can also choose to cut holes where the eyes will go so the mask can be on top, but the boys liked our Ninja Turtle Eggs so much that they wanted them to match.
