Homemade Easter Baskets & Paper Baskets


Tip Junkie is on Easter basket steroids today! I’ve gotten a couple e-mails from readers wanting some fun ideas and I went a little over-the-top. 😉 Here are several fun ideas for homemade & paper Easter baskets. Enjoy!

Casey makes these fur Easter baskets to match your daughters Easter dress! {{squeal in delight}} How fun is that. The inside of the baskets is padded and lined.

This is something I could see my mom doing, painting an old basket from Goodwill and making it a cherished keepsake. I found these on Hollyhand House blog and if you’re not a painter but want one, you’re in luck. She has hooked you up with the contact info to buy one.

I found these darling Easter/Spring “Mommy and Me” kits over on Little Pink Studio. They’re completely different than anything I’ve seen with a vintage feel and fabric bunnies.

Bring on the glitter and modge podge! I found these little gilttered Easter Baskets on ‘The Fabulous Farmhouse’. It looks like she sells them if you’re interested.

I’m loving this monogrammed canvas tote bag I found over on ‘A Sister for the Bean’. To make it easy, Shelley has hooked us up with a tutorial.

I wanted to find a really cheap & easy one you could do with your kiddos. Here’s a craft foam bunny bucket that makes me smile every time I see it.

Have you ever seen a paper bag look so cute? Here are Robin’s paper bag Easter baskets.

I found these darling paper bag bunnies over on Aussie Scrapbooking.

You can find this darling paper Easter basket over on Inking in Red.

This is Kelli’s latest Easter basket creation. She’s holding a class if you want to learn how to make it. The butterfly on the handle is beautiful.

Here is Limelight Paper’s circular Easter basket creation. The double-sided paper is genius!

Here’s an adorable scrapped mini Easter basket. That bunny on the side is so adorable. You can check out more pictures and a link to the tutorial over at ‘A Scrapping Mom’s Scraps’.

Connie’s “Easy” Woven Easter Basket is breathtaking. You know I love a big flower!

Here is Christine’s Easter basket with envelope die. The scalloped handle is to die for!

Thanks Ladies!! I had so much fun finding all of your amazing Easter baskets. Thank you so much for your hard work and inspiration.

Please heart on these sites! Delicious
