My daughter must be getting just as excited for the spring as I am. She has been laying out picnics on our living room floor for the past couple of weeks. I was impressed when she made herself a picnic basket out of a tissue box and pipe cleaners to carrying her food in. I was very proud of her for being so inventive.Popsicle Stick Easter Basket Craft - a pretty project that you can make with your kids

Seeing her clever tissue box project inspired another basket creation. This is sweet basket craft for a spring picnic or for Easter.

Popsicle Stick Easter or spring Basket Craft

What you will need:

Jumbo craft sticks

Hot glue gun


Optional: buttons, foam & pipe cleaners


Lay 5 Popsicle sticks down.


Lay 5 more Popsicle sticks perpendicular over the top of the other 5.


Build 3 more exactly like this. Use the the original to line up the sticks so that all sides are identical.


Construct the bottom by gluing 8 sticks together side by side. Glue two sticks on the two perpendicular edges like shown.


Glue your pre-formed sides to each side. Make sure to glue at the corners as well.


Use ribbon to weave in & out of the square openings formed by the sticks. Glue the ends in place.



Glue 3 sticks together to form your handle. Add flowers or another design of your choosing to add a finishing touch to your basket.

  1. My mom made me a popsicle easter basket as a kid and totally forgot about it until I saw your post here today. Might have to try this for my girls now, too. Thanks for sharing, Kim 😉
