How To Make An Easy Easter Basket
Do you want to find a fun craft that is easy to do with your children this Easter, uses upcycled materials and they can do themselves? Read on for this easy Easter basket tutorial.
For us Easter is about three C's: Christ, Chocolate and Crafts. Of course, to the little ones, chocolate and crafts are much more fun than Christ but there you are.
We love upcycling and not wasting things and the children love these Cadbury's Egg n Spoon eggs so we thought we would make something out of the box so that it doesn't go to waste. This is the perfect craft for over the Easter holidays, it's really easy to do and most of it is done by the children themselves which they will find so much fun!
This easy Easter basket is so fun to make and they can use it to collect eggs on a Easter Egg hunt or just to play with. The cardboard egg boxes are quite sturdy so they are great for little hands too.
Here's how to make this easy Easter basket...
Cut the top of the carton off at the hinge (cut off the hinge too. Add a cardboard handle to the top part of the box (you can make this from the cardboard wrapper) and tape down.
Place the bottom of the box inside the top and tape securely together.
We then painted our baskets and handles and added some paper grass.
Our finished boxes are perfect for holding small eggs. They can use them to collect eggs, to play or even to give eggs as a gift to friends and family over the holidays.
Disclosure - we were sent two boxes of Egg n Spoon for the purposes of this post. To see another way of using the Egg n Spoon in a craft check out Knitty Mummy's post here.

They look great. We also did a craft post with egg'n'spoons, so I've linked to your post from mine (just in case anyone has 2 boxes and wants more inspiration!).
That's great thank you! I have returned the favour! Love how your sheep worked out!
