Paper Plate Easter Basket
March 29th, 2013 by Craftylocks

 

I had fun making this one – I wanted to make something really simple that lots of ages and abilities could enjoy – this one worked for me!

You start by making a really simple basket using two paper plates and a bit of paper for a handle. Cut the top of the paper plates and face them together with a bit of paper folded to make a handle in between them as pictured. Staple the plates together with the ends of the paper handle between them.

You now have a very simple basket that could be decorated in any number of ways. Your young crafter may choose to paint or glitter or collage their basket. I chose to curl it! I curled some strips of paper by rolling them around a pen and then gluing them on to the basket. This is quite a good technique to teach even quite young children to do – they find it quite fun!
