American Crafts | Easter Baskets and Cones

Welcome to a fun blog post featuring special Easter gifts. Instead of creating cards, I thought of a more creative way to show that you care during Easter. I made three cute paper baskets and two cones. You can drop these off at your family's doorstep. Or you can send them in a parcel to your friends. Include a little note to tell them how much you miss them. The baskets and cones can be used for decoration too. Let’s have a look at the projects:

I painted white styrofoam eggs with Rose Gold and Champagne Gold Acrylic Paint from Vicki Boutin. I applied two coats of paint. Before applying the gold paint, I treated the eggs with white gesso from Jane Davenport.

I folded the baskets from square pieces of paper (size 7”x7”). You can find folding instructions on the Internet. Just search for 'how to fold a basket from paper'.

In addition to the painted eggs and the little notes, I added some fancy glitter filling from my stash to imitate grass. I think this is more modern than the traditional Easter basket, which would be filled with green grass.

To make the cones, cut a triangle shape from a square paper. And then just roll the paper to make a cone. TIP: Secure the ends with double-sided tape.
