20 DIY Easter Basket Ideas For a Fun-Tastic Easter
1. Edible Egg DIY Easter Basket
You can make this DIY edible Easter egg basket in minutes. Just glue together four theater box candy boxes to make the sides of the basket.
Glue this frame onto cardboard, and decorate your DIY basket with some fake grass.
2. Fancy DIY Easter Basket
Sophisticated little girls will enjoy this fancy Easter basket. Polka-dotted fabric wrapped around a white basket stuffed with green crepe paper will make any basket look fancy!
Throw in the most elegant versions of staple Easter items for finishing touches!
3. DIY Bucket Easter Basket
Who says you can't make a basket out of a bucket? Your kids will love how many treats they can put in here.
You can draw almost anything on a chalkboard painted pail. Let your kids' imaginations run wild!
4. Paper Plate DIY Easter Basket
Now, this is an Easter basket your kids can make themselves. Paint the paper plates, draw cutting lines, and fold them along these lines.
It doesn't get any simpler than that!

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
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. But, of course, the first thing you have to do is fluff your moss by slightly tearing them apart.
Attach them 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.

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

What makes this Easter basket so charming is the kind of ribbon. 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!

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!
