Craft Stick Basket - blue basket with spring colored checkered ribbon handle and pearlized eggs inside, sitting in front of two white ceramic rabbitsHere's a fun project for the family on those rainy days; creating a basket from craft sticks. You can use school glue for the kids along with craft paints, or for the adult version make it with hot glue and spray paint. This is quick and easy. Here's how!


Total Time: 1 hour

  • craft sticks
  • glue or glue gun
  • craft paints or spray paints - I used Rustoleum American Accents 2X Ultra Cover in French Blue
  • wire ribbon


  1. Glue 4 sticks together, repeat, over lapping over the other. You can make your basket as tall as you want. This one was made with just a little over 50 sticks. Allow to dry.
  2. Craft Stick Basket - glue sticks together at the corners overlapping

Simple wooden craft with many decor possibilities. For anyone and all ages, but it offers a more masculine Easter basket for a boy. Later, it can be used as a tool box or garden crate to get the most out of your time spent crafting.
