  • Plastic berry baskets

  • Pipe cleaners (2 per basket)

  • Ribbon

  • Easter grass

  • Candy eggs, bunnies, jelly beans, or cookies

  • Small stuffed animal


  1. Join two pipe cleaners together end-to-end to make a handle, then hot-glued a bow at the top to hide the twist point. You can dress the basket further by threading narrow ribbon through the slats, using white craft glue or a glue gun to secure the ends.

  2. Fill the bottom with Easter grass, then add candy eggs and bunnies, jellybeans, cookies, and maybe a small stuffed animal.
