How to make an Egg Carton Easter Basket
We divided an egg carton into sections of four cups apiece.
The egg cartons we have tear easily. If you don’t have the same type of carton, you may have to get out the scissors.
We each took a section of the egg carton and started painting.
I got out as many pretty pastel colors of paint as I had, but feel free to paint them any color.
Stripes, polka dots, and solid colors all look pretty on the baskets.
While waiting for the paint to dry, we twisted two different colors of pipe cleaner together.
Once they were twisted, we curved them into a u-shape
I used the sharp pencil to poke a hole in each side of the egg carton.
We then put the ends of the pipe cleaners into each hole, curving up the ends and twisting it around itself.
That’s it. You’re done!
This Egg Carton Easter Basket project was so simple and fun. We filled them with plastic eggs and added them to our Easter decorations. They’re so pretty.
If you find yourself with a few extra egg cartons, turn them into Easter baskets!
