The Sweetest Little Easter Baskets

OK, are you even going to believe me when I tell you that these darling little baskets are made with recycled paper towel rolls? I mean, how darling are these? What great little accents on the table or a name tag for Easter dinner! I didn’t add a banner with a name tag, but that could easily lead your guests to the table and show them where they will be sitting for dinner.DSC_0027a

 

 

Or how about a school spring party? Each child gets their own little basket, with a few tiny little chocolate eggs.

Seriously these sweetest little Easter baskets only take a bit to make and turn out so darling!

You’ll need several paper towel tubes, I use the smaller and get two baskets per tube. So you can figure out how many you will need.

Next, you’ll cut the tube in half as evenly as you can.  I drew a line by leaning a pen against a cap, then put the tube part against the pen tip so I could have a straight line.  Use the line to make straight cuts to. The cuts then get folded down and taped with some scotch tape.

That gives you a cup, you can see the steps in this photo.

Next, I glued a little jute down at the bottom of the cup, using plain Elmer’s glue, and wrapped the jute around and around until I covered the cup. I cut a small piece about 4 inches long, and glued that inside the cup as the handle.

Then I added bits of paper grass which I balled up then added into the cup. On top of the grass I added a couple little chocolate eggs. again, I just think these are so sweet and even if  you decide not to use them as place cards, you could still add them around on your holiday table.
