Easter basket craft with template for a model from scrapbooking paper and with fake stitching

Would you like to make this original Easter basket with fake stitching by yourself? We are not surprised, because it is precisely this false seam that makes the Easter basket from plain paper so special. Use firmer paper such as scrapbooking paper or craft card when making an Easter basket with template. This is because it is easy to work with. But it is later more stable than normal paper.

If you have all the materials together, you can make the Easter basket with template. Print the template on the prepared paper and cut out the elements. Then fold them on the dotted lines and poke holes in the designated places (or punch them). Apply glue to the tabs and glue the elements together. Finally, add the handle, after which you can thread a ribbon through the holes to add the finishing touch to the basket. Fill with artificial grass and eggs or other decorations.

Easter basket craft instructions

Simple craft instructions for Easter basket from felt

Print out the template on a regular sheet of paper and then roughly cut out the individual elements. Then take the large cross and place it on the felt. You can fix it with pins so that nothing slips. Then cut out the cross from the paper and at the same time from the felt. Repeat the same with the other elements. Alternatively, you can cut out the elements exactly at the same time, then transfer them to the felt with a pen, which will fade again over time, and then cut them out.

Then glue the egg together. For the cross, cut the corners diagonally a little to get the tab to glue together. Then fold up two abutting sides at a time, apply glue to one side, and glue the two sides together. Keep doing this until all sides of the basket are upright. Also attach the handle and then the Easter egg. Then you can start filling the basket.

Easter bunny for finished containers

DIY Easter basket with templates - design bucket with Easter bunny

How about simplifying your crafting even further by using a ready-made container and simply designing it to match the holiday? A small metal bucket is perfect for this purpose and can be used and decorated every year. We offer you a cute bunny hugging the bucket. In turn, the bucket is best to have a handle, if the original basket will be carried around. However, if it serves only as a table decoration, a bucket without a handle is also suitable.

As an alternative to the metal bucket, of course, you can use another container. A small flower pot, a popcorn cup or drinking cup made of cardboard or plastic and even a jar of weck can be decorated with the Easter bunny in the same way. Just cut out the elements after you print them out and glue them to the chosen container (the bunny head and body from the back and the back paws in front). You are also welcome to craft this arrangement out of felt or foam rubber, using the template to cut out the elements from the felt.
