Recently I posted a tutorial where I showed you how you can repurpose a plastic bottle into an Easter basket. In the spirit of that video tutorial, I have another one for you today which will teach you how you can make a beautiful miniature Easter basket out of a regular plastic cup.
Usually we think about Easter baskets as something we give to our children filled with sweets and surprises. But Easter baskets can also make for wonderful décor for our homes—especially cute miniature baskets which are ideal for holding one egg.
Lately I’ve made a project out of figuring out ways to make miniature DIY Easter baskets. And most recently, I have found a way to do it using an ordinary plastic cup.
You can use any kind of plastic cup that you want for this project, but I suggest that you pick one which is either white or which has a bright color which is fitting for the Easter holiday. I picked one which is a cheerful, sunny yellow.
It also has a ribbed texture to it which I think adds to the appearance of the basket in a pleasing way.
The other materials and tools you need are pretty basic. At a minimum, you’ll require pipe cleaners, a pair of scissors, and a hot glue gun. You’ll also probably want some Easter grass to put inside the basket, and some cute decorative embellishments.
If you are ready to get started, you can find the written instructions along with the video tutorial below. Let’s begin!
