Paper Plate Easter Basket Hip2Save

Need a last minute Easter basket or a fun and simple Easter weekend activity? Follow this easy method to create your very own Easter basket out of paper plates.

How to make an Easter basket out of a paper plate Hip2Save
Start by painting your plate contrasting colors if desired. Make four cuts a few inches in on each side of plate. Fold up the sides and staple to secure. Twist two pipe cleaners together. Punch a hole on each side of basket and secure pipe cleaners. Now your homemade basket is ready to hold some Easter eggs or treats!

    Cute idea! These would be cute with some of those homemade bath bombs in them. My daughters daycare is cutting the tops off and decorating milk jugs for “Easter baskets”.

      Oh that’s way cute too 🙂

      That’s what I’m doing too! Love the egg shaped bath bomb idea making these tonight.

    These would be cute to serve a picnic lunch in.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! I agree 🙂

    These would be great for May baskets that no one seems to do anymore. I guess I’m showing my age! I used to make them as a kid and a man that I always gave them to, who is now 75, still talks about it to this day. Warms my heart!

      Was just going to say the same thing, so excited to have the kids use this for May Day Baskets this year!!

    • Lynn

      Perfect for May baskets!!!
