Why buy an Easter basket? If you have craft sticks and a glue gun, you can make your own craft stick Easter basket.
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.

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