Great Eco Recycled Easter Baskets

Great Eco Recycled Easter Baskets

Whats not to love about the thrill of children doing an Easter egg hunt? Here’s a great variety of Eco & Recycled Easter Baskets you can make:

Brown Paper EasterBasket

Brown paper bag converted into this super cute basket. Find the tutorial over at ellinee.

Upcycled-Basket-Weaving-for-Mothers-Day-or-Easter

Upcycled milk carton Easter Basket – I love this. Great instructions from Red Ted Art.

Plastic Bag Basket

Too many plastic bags despite your best efforts?? Weave a basket. Thanks to luckyladybirdcraft.

Of course I have to include a basket you can make with newspaper – love this from jenniferperkins.

 

Recycled sweater basket

And naturally a recycled sweater basket too, thanks to triedandtrueblog.

 

Fabric scrap easter basket

 

Wrap piping with fabric scraps, and stitch together (reminds me of making clay coilpots) – tutorial at modabakeshop.

Which eco recycled easter basket are you tempted to make? Personally wishing we had brighter plastic bags for the plastic bag basket.

What a great selection of baskets Vicky! So much better than store bought plastic! I remember half the fun of the Easter Egg Hunt at school was making the basket to put them in!

Lots of lovely baskets. The fabric one could be used for storing knitting/sewing bits and pieces as well.

I like the weaving.mjust wish I had longer than 2 days left of term as I don't think I will manage to fit it in.
