Easy Easter Paper Craft: Mini Egg Basket



I love Easter! I've always loved dying eggs, hand painting them and hiding them! I'm in the midst of planning our neighborhood egg hunt, so I'm buried in plastic eggs. Here's a fun use for those mismatched ones that always seem to be left over! I thought this idea at the Think Crafts! blog was so darling, I decided to adapt it to what items I had on hand. My girls (9 and 4) loved helping me make these. What's not to love about decoupage?








Here are the basic supplies:
scrapbooking paper
plastic eggs
decoupage glue/brush
ribbon








I cut the paper into angled strips so that it fit better on the egg and layered them on top of one another.






I knew I would find something cute to do with this iron tree that I found on clearance at Big Lots! I'll whip up a few more and maybe the Easter Bunny will fill them with chocolate kisses. Happy Easter!
