Flowery Rain Boots Easter Basket
Wondering how to make Easter baskets by recycling household items you already own? Spring-pattern rain boots serve as a neat hiding place for sweet Easter treats.
To make them, stuff a layer of Easter grass ($3, Target) into the bottom of each boot. Add plastic eggs, candy, and other small gifts until you reach the top, then tuck in more faux grass for a pretty display in this clever Easter basket alternative.
Tin Easter Basket
Enliven a plain-Jane metal tin as this year's Easter basket. Metal buckets with handles are the standard choice, but pretty options without handles will hold candy and other Easter treats. To make it, trim a thick band of solid-color paper from poster board. Wrap it around the center of a tin pail, attaching with a hot-glue gun ($5, Walmart) as you go. Secure the ends with tape. To personalize pails, pick each egg hunter's favorite color.
Coiled Fabric Easter Baskets
All you need to make our pretty DIY Easter baskets is a cord, fabric strips, and glue. Fill them with spring candy and treats for a sweet and personalized Easter basket.
For each basket, you'll need 3/4 yard of colored print fabric (cut into 16 x 1 1/2-inch strips), 4 yards of cotton piping cord, and a hot-glue gun and glue sticks or needle and thread. Hot-glue a fabric strip to one end of the cord, and wrap it around the cord on the diagonal. Repeat to cover the cord. Coil the cord tightly around itself, hot-gluing as you go, and adding covered cords until you've reached your desired base size. Build the sides by gluing covered cords to the edge of the base and then coiling it upward, until your basket is the desired height. Add tiny handles fashioned from leftover fabric.
Gingham Garland Basket
A fun Easter garland is the secret to this pastel Easter basket. Simply tie scraps of gingham fabric to the basket handle and you're done. Customize your basket with any patterned fabric you like.
Easy Paper Basket
Colorful Button Easter Basket
We’ve buttoned up how to turn a basic wooden basket into one ready for the Easter hunt. Simply glue on buttons of all shapes, sizes, and colors. No need to be exact. Tie a pretty pink ribbon to the handle for a holiday-ready presentation.
Paper Flower Basket
This DIY Easter basket is all about the handle. Handmade paper flowers give this purchased basket a twist. Make any shape flowers you like, then twist them around the handle using florists wire.
Easter Bonnet Basket
We turned the idea of a pretty Easter basket on its head. Start by freshening any hat with a dryer sheet. Build up a base with wadded paper towels covered with greenery. Fill it with softly colored eggs, either real or artificial. Hollowed-out eggs can be stuffed with paper ribbons bearing spring wishes, egg-hunting clues, or names for place cards.
Fabric-Wrapped Easter Tins
Scraps of your favorite fabrics turn regular tin planters into adorable Easter gift baskets. When cutting out the fabric, allow extra on all edges to fold under, and plan for holes for the pail's handle. Apply a decoupage medium such as Mod Podge ($5, Target) to the pail; cover with fabric. Smooth out any air bubbles. Finish with a second coat of decoupage medium.
Large Easter Tub
A simple label transforms a colorful tub into a baby Easter basket in a pinch. If you're giving a handful of toys or simply want a long-lasting Easter basket, the large-size tub works great. Write the child's name on a label and tie it to the handle with a matching ribbon. Children will love how many toys and treats this sturdy “basket” can hold.
Easter Treat Basket
This dainty pink basket makes an adorable nest for painted eggs, jelly beans, or chocolates. For a personalized Easter basket, add a monogram to the side.
To make it, print out the free pattern, cut, and assemble. Tie with a bright pastel bow as the final flourish for your Easter basket.
