Did you want to make something cute for your kids, a spouse, a church group, or a friend for Easter, but then never got around to doing something? Well, I’m here to tell you….it isn’t too late!! You can still make these cute plastic cup Easter Baskets!
All you need is:
two plastic cups
a pair of scissors
some Easter basket grass
and whatever candy you have!
My friend, Tonya, is hilarious, smart, cute and very FUN!!
She came over tonight and taught me how to make these cute (super cheap) Easter baskets for our young women!
First, you take one cup and make slits in it about 2 1/2 inches long.
(You can eyeball it. It doesn’t have to be perfect!)
Second, you make another slit up by the rim of the cup so that you can “hook” it onto the next slat.
It’s kinda hard to explain, but I hope you get the idea.
The first few went easy but the last few were kind of tricky. Stay with it.
Then…BAM!! You have these stinkin’ cute baskets.
They look even cuter when you get the handle across the top.
To make the handle, we took the second cup and cut a one inch wide piece off the top.
It’s a little bit of a challenge to get the “handles” to stay on, so we slit both ends of the “handle”
and slit two of the opposite sides of the basket and slipped them into each other.
(It’s late and I really hope this makes sense!!! ha ha ha)
Then we filled each one will some pink grass and some reeses eggs!!
So go make something cute today for someone you love!
(with something you probably already have in your kitchen cupboards! : )
What a great idea! I might have to try it just for fun!
