Amelia’s lovely Easter basket makes a great present for a friend or family member. Or you could leave it out for the Easter Bunny to fill with eggs, just for you!
Either way, we’re sure you’ll enjoy this fun craft project - make sure you take a picture when you’ve finished, and share it with us on Facebook or Instagram!
What you’ll need:
(You can find all of these materials in the craft aisle of supermarkets and high street shops, or craft shops)
Coloured lolly sticks
A cardboard tube
Decorations (Amelia has chosen googly eyes, a mini pompom and some small beads, but you could add flowers, jewels, or drawings of Easter eggs and chicks - whatever you like!)
How to make your Easter basket:
Cut your cardboard tube in half - each half makes one basket.
Draw round the end of one tube on your coloured card.
Cut out the circle you have drawn and glue it to the end of one of the tube halves. That is the base of your basket.
Take seven lolly sticks. If they’re plain ones, paint them whichever colour/s you like and wait for them to dry
Carefully cut your lolly sticks in half.
Glue the lolly sticks (with the cut ends at the bottom) around the cardboard tube.
Decorate your basket with washi tape.
Cut a chenille stem to a length of about 5 inches, and glue each end to the inside of the basket, to make the handle. (You could also twist several stems together to make an even more interesting handle.)
