Ready for a bit of Easter crafting? These simple egg-hunt baskets are perfect to make with, or for some-bunny you love! They’d also make sweet table decorations at an Easter party.

You will need:

Method:

1. Cut your tube down to the size you require. (Tip for cutting a cardboard tube: use an elastic band to mark the place you want to cut, making sure it is level. Mark the line with a pen, remove the elastic and cut carefully along the line with a craft knife.)

2. Cover the tube with coloured paper using a glue stick to secure it. Brown parcel paper looks rustic and natural, but you can choose whichever colour you like.

3. Cut out two bunny-ear shapes from the card. Add some ‘inner ear’ detail with coloured paper and glue them to the inside of the container.

 

4. Create your bunny’s face by cutting features from coloured paper and gluing them in position. Alternatively, you could use felt-tip pens to draw on the face. Add the pom-pom nose.

5. Punch a hole in each side of the tube and thread the ribbon through to make a handle for your basket. You’re ready for an egg-hunt!
