Mini Easter Baskets are a charming spring holiday craft that you can make with your kids. These are so simple, you'll want to make plenty to use as table decorations and to give to your friends.

How to Make Mini Easter Baskets

What You'll Need:

  • Cardboard Egg Cartons
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon or Chenille Stems
  • Paints and Paintbrushes (optional)
  • Easter Grass (or shredded green construction paper)
  • Easter Candy
  • Adult Help

Step One: Separate the individual egg buckets of an egg carton with scissors; an adult may need to help you do this. Use a sharp pencil point to poke a hole on two opposite sides of each bucket.

Step Two: Cut a piece of ribbon, and tie each end through a hole to create a handle for the basket. Instead of ribbon, you could use chenille stems for the handle; attach each end of the stem to a side of the basket.

Step Three: Add a bow to the top of the handle. Paint the baskets, if you'd like.

Step Four: Fill the basket with Easter grass and Easter goodies.
