Tips For Making Your Own Easter Baskets
There used to be a time when buying Easter baskets was affordable, but now prices seem to have increased beyond many buyer’s budgets. Here are some tips for making your own Easter baskets using creative and ingenuous ideas.
A basket can come in any size and shape. Traditionally, an Easter basket is made of wicker, filled with brightly colored cellophane and with a handle. You can make a basket out of things in your home. For example, a milk carton can be used. You can wrap it with brightly colored cellophane or tissue paper, attach a bow for the handle, and Voila! An Easter basket is born.
You can also make a cute little basket using a paper plate and ribbon. Make holes on each side of the paper plate; use a bright colored ribbon to insert through the holes; make a bow and you have a basket, similar to one you would use to carry flowers! There are so many decorative paper plates available in your local supermarket, and you can dress it up however you choose. Your little girl will love it!
How about buying a plain basket? Take some pink or blue ribbon and weave it through the basket. You can cover the handle of the basket with ribbon as well. Instead of buying the cellophane grass, line the bottom of the basket with colorful tissue paper cut into strips – making a nest, so to speak. Fill the basket with whatever you choose.
It is doubtful you will run out of ideas, but just in case check online and you will find a variety of ways in which you can use a paper bag; and even templates that you can print out to make a unique and creative Easter basket this year. These tips for making your own Easter basket are just the “tip” of the iceberg. If you are a craft person, no doubt you will come up with even more creative ways to make this Easter a fun and exciting one for your kids to remember.
