Decorated Berry Baskets

Brightly colored plastic berry baskets, available at any supermarket, are ideal carriers of Easter tidings.


  • Plastic berry baskets
  • Pipe cleaners (2 per basket)
  • Ribbon
  • Easter grass
  • Candy eggs, bunnies, jelly beans, or cookies
  • Small stuffed animal


  1. Step 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. Step 2

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