DIY Easter Egg Basket out of Woven Paper


This year prepare the Easter decorations in time, instead of leaving them to the last day. If you want to make it even more special, make the decorations yourself. For instance, build this next Easter egg basket, out of woven paper. You don’t need to be an expert in crafting, but you will need a bit of skills and practice to make the basket. The great thing about is project is that you can use old newspaper or any other materials you already have at home. The supplies you will need are:

• woven paper or old newspaper;
• glue;
• scissors;
• egg;
• tray;
• acrylic paint;


Place a sheet of paper on your working surface this will be the base of your basket. Then take the egg tray and place it on the paper. Start making the sides of the basket, out of the newspaper. Roll the newspaper as shown in the picture and make the sides. Then add the rolled newspaper to the basket to create grids and start braiding them one into each other to make the pattern of the basket. If you get lost in the process, just follow the pictures. When your basket is done, you can paint it any color you like. Fill it with eggs and add some natural grass as decoration.

    is this available any where with full instructions? I don’t see what they did with the strips under the paper, did they just glue the paper on without weaving any of the strips? and i’d like to see better details on how they braided the top rail.
