Easter baskets are easy to make and perfect to collect all the little Easter eggs. Every Easter, my partner grew up finding Easter eggs hidden around his backyard, and we’re going to do that with our daughter, but I needed a basket to collect the eggs in first!
What You Need:
- A small basket
- Yellow pom-poms of various sizes
- Green paper
Note: if your basket doesn’t have a lining (my does) then place some tissue paper inside to protect your Easter eggs.
Step one: Place the “chickens” on the basket
The yellow pom-poms – with a Sharpie addition of a little face on each – are your chickens. Start by gluing two of them either side of the basket handle. You may have to wait for the glue to dry before you move on, depending on the strength of it.
Step two: Cut the paper and wrap it around the handle
Cut your paper into strips. These should be thin enough to just wrap around the handle of your basket. Tape the first part of the paper to the basket handle and then wrap it loosely around the entire handle. I needed to use two sheets, but it will depend on the size of your basket handle and the paper you use.
Step three: Add ribbon
Tie a piece of ribbon in a bow around the center of the handle. You could choose to add more chickens either side of the ribbon. Now, you just have to make sure you have enough for all your Easter eggs!
