Mini Wooden Easter Basket: Kids Craft

Happy Sunday my friends! We are crafting today…Easter Crafting to be specific!

As part of the Walmart Moms program, they have put together a fun crafting group. There is a special Facebook group that you can join to share your crafts and be inspired by others. And they also have Pinterest boards with lots of great crafting ideas!

Since Easter is right around the corner, I was asked to create these Mini Wooden Easter Baskets from the folks at Craft Project Ideas. I have to be honest, with all teenagers in the house, it’s been a few years since I’ve made any Kids Crafts. But they looked really cute, so I thought I would give them a try and add my own little spin to them.

Aren’t they cute? Doug helped me and I think they turned out darling! After looking through the craft aisle at Walmart, and checking out all the fun crafting supplies from Craft Project Ideas, we thought these Mini Wooden Easter Baskets would make a fun classroom treat.  We added some Sun Catchers, Acrylic Paint and a paint brush for the kids to have a take home craft.

Note: Be sure to include the instructions on how to paint the Sun Catchers.

Then we headed over to the Easter aisles, to check out the $.97 cents goodies! We found the bendable bunnies {love them!} and some little plastic, popper bunnies, that jump when you push down on them. And of course, I had to add a couple pieces of candy.

Let’s make some Mini Wooden Easter Baskets

You can print off the supply list below. If you are making more than one basket in each color, you may want to buy the larger jars of Acrylic Paint.

Now…let’s fill the baskets…

  1. Lay the Mini Craft Stick on the cup to measure the size
  2. Trim the cup to fit, if necessary
  3. Using the point of the scissors, poke a hole on opposite sides of the cup {adult help}
  4. Insert Fuzzy Stick into hole and make a small knot on the inside
  5. Wrap the Fuzzy Stick around your finger to curl it
  6. Insert the other end of into the opposite hole and make a small knot on the inside
  7. Glue Mini Craft Sticks to the outside of the cup. Be sure they are standing straight up. It's okay if there is a little cup showing, it will be covered with paint.
  8. Paint the basket with Acrylic Paint
  9. Let dry
  10. Wrap 2 Fuzzy Sticks around the outside of the basket, twisting to secure and cutting off the excess. Be sure to tuck in the ends so the sharp edges aren't showing.

These Mini Wooden Easter Baskets would make a great classroom treat, Sunday School gift, or even a fun teacher gift.
