DIY Easter Basket Ideas: 28 Easter Baskets to Make

Homemade Easter baskets are the perfect addition to your spring holiday traditions.

By: Christine Weiher, Editor,

Spend Easter morning with your family by having a nice brunch and looking for your Easter baskets. One of my favorite DIY Easter basket ideas is a nice green crafting project. You can gather things you already have lying around your house and make your own Easter baskets in no time. The only thing you need to spend money on is the goodies you fill it with. A shoebox, some construction paper and a few other materials gets you a great Easter basket. Read about the article I wrote on making your own Easter basket.

Below you can find some really cute Easter baskets you can make. Make one and keep it for every year or make a new one each year. These can be used for decorations or functional Easter baskets for the kids to find. So if you're looking for an Easter basket to make, check out these Easter basket ideas!

So many cute ideas! I don't even know where to begin!

Wow! some of these ideas I would have never thought of on my own. I love them! I am going to give several of these a try at our house. I think I will try the yarn baskets. They look so simple and will be a good way to use up some of those balls of yarn I have hoarded.

The link for the Pink Crochet Easter Basket has been fixed. Sorry for the confusion!

Trying to get the pattern for the Pink Crochet Easter Basket in row 2 but it keeps coming up as the Paper Flowers Easter Basket pattern.

I'm interested in the pattern for the Pink Crochet Easter Basket in Row 2, but when I click on it, it gives the instructions for the Paper Flowers Easter Basket. Any chance that can be fixed? Thanks!

There is no pattern for the last basket shown in the second row. When I click on it I get paper flowers Easter basket. You have two instructions for "paper flowers Easter basket" and none for the last one in row two.

I am looking to make an Easter basket for my great-granddaughter and need some patterns to put on it .. I am going to use plastic canvas ... I made them for my grandchildren but I can't find the papers with the patterns ... can u help

These crafts have been around for longer than 2 days. Maybe you should check the site more often. )

Why do you give us these crafts to make 2 days before the holiday when there's no time to buy the supplies much less make the craft. Very frustrating!

For the crocheted Bunny in A Basket instructions wherever a fraction should appear the backslash has been dropped both in the instructions and in people's comments. When the instructions are supposed to say one-half inch or one-fourth inch they say 12" or 14". This makes the instructions confusing and unless crafters realize the problem the project can't be completed. This doesn't seem to be true in other instructions so it must be a problem with whatever software is being used when writing the instructions. I hope the editors can find a way to fix this. Until they do fix this 12" pompoms should be one-half inch and 14" pompoms should be one-fourth inch. The chenille stems for the ears should be cut four and a half inches long and the basket's finished size is three and a half by five inches.

Very few of these baskets actually use anything that most people would have around the house - like a die cutter, spakle etc.
