5. Grocery Bag Easter Basket

| If you’re like me who stocks up on grocery bags for rainy days, I’m sure you’ll love this idea. All you have to do is cut up some grocery bags into strips and weave them alternately.

Use a glue gun to secure the gaps and decorate with a bow.

6. No-Sew Easter Basket

| I must admit, not everyone has the time to sew Easter crafts, but this is not a problem! All you need to do is find any round craft box you can cover with fabric.

Apply glue to all surfaces and wrap your chosen fabric around the box. Finish this project with a cute string for a handle and a little puffy pom-pom!

7. DIY Moss Basket

| This Pottery Barn knock-off is an Easter basket even adults will love. The first thing you have to do is fluff your moss by slightly tearing them apart.

Attach them all around the basket using a hot glue gun, and trim them to perfection!

8. Crepe Paper Treat Basket

| We all have empty food containers lying around the house, and it’s all you need to make this crepe paper treat basket!

Decorate the container with some crepe paper and attach a bedazzled handle. Creativity meets simplicity.

10. DIY Mickey and Minnie Easter Basket

| Some kids can’t get enough of their favorite buddies from Disney. You can turn any regular Easter basket into Mickey and Minnie by just using spray paint and cutting up some mouse ears!

11. Handmade Birch Bark Basket

| This Easter basket is so gorgeous you can also turn it into a centerpiece. All you have to do is create a box using chipboard, and cover this box with some birch bark sheets!

This handmade birch bark basket is already so rustic, anything else you add will just make it more beautiful.

12. Upcycled Egg Carton Easter Baskets

| Of course, if egg cartons can hold eggs, then they certainly can be turned into Easter egg baskets! Just cut them apart, paint them, and attach them to a decorated wire!

Add some ribbon to prettify your upcycled egg carton Easter basket!

13. Upcycled Easter Basket

| I’m sure most of us have coffee cans we empty in no time at home. No need to throw them away.

You can turn them into Easter baskets by wrapping layers of fancy ribbon around them and attaching them to a wire adorned with pearls!

14. Charming Easter Basket

| What makes this Easter basket so charming is the kinds of ribbon used on it. Use a regular ribbon with a cute color to weave through the basket and a gauze ribbon for accent.

Add a nest and a bird to make your charming Easter basket come to life!

15. DIY Duct Tape Bunny Basket

| Duct tape is no longer just for electrical wires! With just rolls of pink and white duct tapes, you can turn a regular can of oatmeal into an Easter basket!

Wrap the tapes around the cans with an image of the Easter bunny in mind. To finish it up, draw the bunny’s nose, eyes, and cheeks!
