Dixie Cup Easter Baskets

Dixie Cup mini Easter Basket Craft - cute idea for kid's classrooms or parties. Kid's arts, crafts & activities

Our daughter has gotten to the age where she is beginning to understand the joy in giving other people gifts. She loves to draw andย paint special pictures for us at home andย she has a collection of them that she made for her friends. With Easter coming, I thought we could make mini Dixie cup Easter baskets for some of her friends with just a few little treats inside.
What you will need:
3 oz Dixie cups
Construction paper or foam pieces
Hot glue (for adult use only)
Paint your Dixie cups in pastel colors. Add diagonal lines if you would like to add a more basket look to them.



Set your cups aside to let dry.
Cut strips out of construction paper or foam about 5 1/2″ long. We use foam for sturdier construction.IMG_9890
Glue the strip to the outside of each side of your cup to form a handle.
Form small bows with yarn & glue to the front of your cup.
Let the glue dry & fill your baskets with Easter grass & a few Easter treats.

  1. Love those Easter baskets and am so happy I have my Easter Peeps Cake recipe that I could link up this weekend for the spring theme. And by the way, we too got snow yesterday. Just so thankful that most of it melted once the sun came out today. But seriously so done with snow and so ready for spring already!

    1. Thank you Janine. Thank you for linking up with us. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yup, we snowed yesterday & today. Yuck! Where is my nice weather?

  2. Great idea & it looks so good. Your daughter looks pretty cute & she is very much involved in the Craft activity. My kids are also always interested in giving the best try on such fun craft works at home.

  3. Hello beautiful! Thank you for hosting such a fabulous party. I love it! If you get a minute, please stop by our party that starts tonight at 7 pm. We pin and tweet each and every project.
