If you head to the store, you’ll notice shelves and shelves of Easter baskets and buckets, but they are expensive! You don’t have to spend $15 on the basket itself then still fill it. Here are some fun ideas for ways to make a basket.
I seriously love these felt Easter Baskets. They are easy to make and really cute. Check out the full tutorial over at Atkinson Drive.
Why waste a basket that will just get broken? Use boxes of candy to create an edible basket. I looks pretty easy and Peeps are super cute. You could really use any boxed candy though. They sell those theater style boxes at all the stores for really cheap. Check out the tutorial at One Good Thing by Jillee.
I love duct tape. It is so versatile and comes in every color and print imaginable. Here is a tutorial on making a cute basket out of duct tape from Joanns.
If you can sew, this basket is perfect for you. It is so cute and can be personalized with anything you’d like. The better your sewing skills, the cuter this basket could be. Unfortunately my sewing skills aren’t all that great, so mine would be basic, but with the right fabric it could still be fab. Check out the full tutorial at Positively Splendid.
This is a really inexpensive way to make a basket out of an old food wrapper. In this picture they used a cereal bag, but you could use any type of large food bad. Very cute and great way to recycle. Check it out on Dollar Store Crafts!
I’ve seen old tshirts and fabric turned into rugs but never a basket before. What a great idea! This is super cute and a great way to reuse some old shirts or whatever fabric you have around the house! Check out the easy-to-follow tutorial at J&S Creationz.
The face on this bunny is just adorable! I love the upside down heart nose! If you head over to Two Peas in a Bucket you can get a little advice on how to make it out of something you may not have thought of!
I love the look of a shell crochet pattern. This basket can be done is so many different ways just based on the type of yard used. If you are fast at crochet (which I’m not) you could whip this up in no time…..I’d need a little more time than most, but I might still try it. Get the full pattern on Hubpages.
I saw this basket and love the simplicity of it…then I realized it is made with a brown paper bag! It took me to a whole different level. I adore this little basket. Get the tutorial at Lia Griffith.
I can’t even lie. I’ve seen this basket for a few years now and have loved it ever since. I love the colors, the patterns and it’s uniqueness. Visit Moda Bake Shop for a tutorial.
