Easter Basket from Cottage Cheese Container

Here's an easy and cheap Easter basket that the kids can make. All you need is:

  • Cottage cheese container (sanded and painted)
  • Ad
  • 3 pipe cleaners
  • Hole punch
  • Cross made from thin cardboard
  • Purple tissue paper
  • 2 pieces of thorns

After you've sanded and painted your cottage cheese container (it may need more than 1 coat) punch holes in the top for the handle and so you can weave the pipe cleaners along the top. Hot glue on the purple tissue paper to your cross and glue the cross to the basket. Then hot glue on the thorns (I found some thorns in the woods behind my house)

On the other basket I just printed out a picture of a cross with lilies, colored it with markers and glued it on the basket. I also weaved the pipe cleaner different on this basket. You can do it any way you want. If you're going to let the kids do this themself I suggest using tacky glue or elmer's.

You also need some Easter grass for in the bottom of your basket. These are a nice size to give as gifts for Easter.
