How to Make the Easter Paper Basket Craft
What you need:

- ribbed yellow color paper
- two split pins
- green cardboard
- pillow stuffing (cotton balls or polyester balls)
- hot glue
- orange paper
- two googly eyes
- ruler with circle shapes
Step by Step Tutorial
The Egg Basket
Take the compass and draw a circle with 4 cm diameter on the cardboard.
Cut the circle out.
Draw a 4 cm x 5 cm rectangle on the ribbed green paper.
Cut it out.
Now draw a 0,5 cm wide and 15 cm long strip.
Mark fifteen 1 cm parts on the bottom part of the stripe as shown.
Then mark fourteen 1 cm parts on the upper part of the strip – each of the marks should come in between the bottomed 1 cm parts.
Now draw some triangles following the marks. Make them equal in size.
Take your scissors and make some cuts following the triangles.
This green piece will serve as a bottom for our Easter basket.
Apply some glue around the cardboard circle and attach the green piece on and around the circle.
Glue the ends and attach them.
We just made the bottom part of our basket.
The Basket’s Handle
Now cut out 1 cm x 14,5 cm ribbed green strip.
It will serve as a basket handle.
Attach one end of the strip on the basket with a split pin. Then attach the other end of it on the opposite side with a split pin.
Split the ends of the pins, so our handle stays in place.
Also, check if the handle moves freely.
Take some pillow stuffing and place it inside the basket.
We used polyester balls.
Draw three small circles on the ribbed yellow paper, then cut them out with your scissors.
Fold each of the circles in half.
Glue them together as shown.
Our chick will serve as décor for our basket.
Glue the chick’s body on the basket.
Draw a beak and chick’s hair on the orange paper.
Cut them out.
Glue the beak and the hair on the chick.
Draw and cut out two tiny wings on the ribbed yellow paper.
Put some glue on the wings and attach them to the chick.
Take the googly eyes, and glue them above the chick’s beak.
Now you can place your favorite Easter egg inside the basket.
You can also put some Easter treats inside it; it doesn’t have to be an egg.
We like how this Easter basket turned out.
