Mini Easter Basket

Cute Mini Easter Basket decoration made from two solo cups.  Printout from  ActivitiesForKids.com
Add a Mini Easter Basket for each member of the family. An easy way to decorate the table for Easter morning. This inexpensive Easter craft is a cute way to make up mini Easter baskets for a large group. Fill with Easter grass and candies or treats.
MATERIALS:
  • 2 Solo Brand 9 oz clear plastic cups
  • Brown Pipe cleaner
  • Scissors
  • Easter grass
  • White printer paper
  • Printout for the Easter Basket cup insert
  • Candy and treats to include in the cups
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Print out the Easter Basket cup insert on the white printer paper and cut it out. NOTE: When printing a PDF document, be sure to print at ‘Actual Size.’
  2. Place the cut out paper into one of the clear Solo cups with the pattern facing out so the design shows through the cup.
  3. Insert a second Solo cup into the first so that the paper is in between the two cups.
  4. Bend the brown pipe cleaner to form the basket handle and insert in-between the two cups. This can also be glued into place.
  5. Fill the cup with Easter grass and top with Jelly Beans and other goodies.
SUGGESTIONS:
    To make the cups more secure, put a dot of glue (glue gun works best) into the bottom of the first cup so that the cups stay together.
