Make Your Own Paper Bag Easter Baskets

Simple, Easy, and Fun.  These Easter Baskets are the Perfect Project for You and Your Family this Holiday.

Surprise your friends with a special Easter basket decorated just for them. Fill them with a few eggs or small treats, or use the baskets for an egg hunt in your backyard. All you need are plain paper bags and our Smarts and Crafts Bright Bundle Craft Kit for all sorts of decorating possibilities.

-Arts and Crafts Supply Library (fuzzy sticks)

-Brown paper lunch sacks or small paper bags


1.  Use a pair of scissors to cut off the top section of the bags. You can create a decorative edge by using the scissors to create a wave, zigzag, or fringed edge if you want.

2.  Get creative decorating your bags with colorful tape, fuzzy sticks and pom-poms from the Bright Bundle Craft Kit.

You can also cut the adhesive paper strips into different designs and add them to the front of the basket.

3.  Create a handle for your basket by poking a long fuzzy stick through the side of the bag and bending the end up to hold in place. Poke the other end through the opposite side of the bag.

We used fuzzy sticks from the Arts and Crafts Supply Library but you can also twist three small fuzzy sticks from the Bright Bundle Craft Kit together to create a handle like we did below.

Fill your paper bag baskets with some Easter grass, eggs, and treats.
