Instructions to Make Your Own Paper Easter Basket

Step 1

Color the pieces of the Easter basket outline. We used colored pencils to make colorful stripes on the sides of the Easter basket and then used each color in the stripes on a flower.  For the handle piece, we cross-hatched the colored pencil marks so it looked more like a traditional Easter basket.

Step 1 - Color the Easter Basket template
The first thing we will do is to decorate the printable Easter basket template!

The basket prints as a blank pattern so you can decorate it with whatever design  you prefer.

Step 2 - Add cute little flowers to decorate your basket
The flowers are cute Easter cut out decorations for your basket.

Step 2

Cut out the basket and the basket accessory pieces with scissors.

Step 3

Fold the Easter basket cut out along all the lines using the tabs to tuck inside.

Step 4

Use the tabs to glue the basket template into an Easter basket shape.

Step 3 - Glue the handle on the basket
Your easy Easter basket template includes an Easter basket handle.

Step 5

Glue on the handle and the the accessory pieces like flowers and the “Happy Easter” banner.

Craft tip: Once you decide where you want the handle to be, make a slit in the basket side to slip the end of the handle through and attach on the inside of the basket.

  1. I can’t print the easter basket pintables. It won’t load and says there is an error. Please email them to me.

    1. Hi, Barbara! It just worked for me when I tried. If you click the download button, a field pops up to enter your email address, and then the printable is sent directly to you. If you can’t find it in your inbox, please check your Spam folder, as depending on your email settings, sometimes it goes there. I am emailing the file to you now so that you have it, but wanted to explain for the future.

    1. Hi, Janet. Did you mean that you were having problems downloading it? I can help with that (I just emailed it to you!), but I am unable to help with your printer, unfortunately. Good luck!
