Easy Easter Basket DIY - Easter Basket Tutorial

by Jo Williams April 12, 2014

Easter is just days away and today we were busy decorating our Easter Table. The children got to work cutting branches and flowers from the garden and hanging their collection of eggs and other seasonal bits and bobs. Once their masterpiece was completed they decided it needed a little something extra so we got to work and made some cute little hanging baskets for the Easter Bunny to fill next Sunday.

 DIY Easy Easter Hanging Baskets 

These baskets are just so simple to make! All you need are baking cups and masking tape and tissue paper (we used pieces of tissue garland), no scissors or glue required (my kind of crafting)

Take a Baking Cup and some co-ordinating masking tape (washi Tape)

Lie a piece of masking tape (aprox 8" long) sticky side up

Cover with another piece of masking tape sticky side down. leave an inch at either end uncovered. This will make the handle.

Stick your handle inside the baking cup and secure with an extra piece of tape.

Pop some shredded tissue paper or garland into the basket and put somewhere for the Easter Bunny to find and fill!

Birthday party

my order arrived on time, the balloon were sensational!
Will come back!

They look very elegant


These don't come assembled so allow yourself enough time for folding the foil into strips and attaching with bands. Looked lovely on the fireplace (not lit!)

Order enough

This only filled 2 numbers and two 16in orbs so definitely order more than you need and note it gets expensive!!! Do a design that allows you to use air and hang upside down and save helium for where you really need it.

Just what I needed

Guess what- it was perfect for a hen party! Top quality.
