2 Fabric Collage
Here is an Easter basket idea that your kids can help you make. Even if they find crafting boring, they are sure to make an exception with this particular project. Why? Because it involves gluing fabric pieces to a balloon! You then let the collaged fabric dry, pop the balloon, add a handle, and your colorful basket is ready to host some eggs!

3 Flowered Basket
Oh, these are absolutely gorgeous. And easy to do, too, considering you only need to embellish a store-bought basket with flowers. You can find pretty silk flowers in any craft shop. Choose some in a color (or colors) that you like, hot glue them to a basket, embellish with ribbons and that's it.

4 Popsicle Sticks Basket
Here is an Easter basket that you can make using materials from your kids' art stash. The base used here was a plastic bin. I think any box that is low enough for the popsicle sticks to cover will work just fine. You can choose to paint the finished basket or leave the natural wood color to shine. You can even doodle chicks or bunnies to the front of the basket!

6 Sleepy Bunnies
These would make for perfect treat bags for your Easter party. You will need felt, embroidery floss, and printed fabric scraps for this project. You simply cut the face pieces, add the sleepy face details and printed ears, and then sew them together, along the sides. Leave the top of the head open for filling in candies and treats.

8 Crepe Paper Rose Basket
Look at this gorgeous DIY Easter basket. The great thing about this is that it can be used for other non-Easter events, too. I think that these will look great as wedding centerpieces. Imagine the rose in white for a winter wedding. Cute, right?
