Easter Basket for Barbie from Recycled Egg Carton

Here's a fun craft to do with the kids, these Barbie Easter baskets from an egg carton couldn't be easier and are just too cute! The best part is, even the youngest girl can help make them. Simply cut the cup out of the egg carton and square up the top a bit. From there it's all about decorating... You just need glue and some pretty/blingy items from your stash.
You can cover the basket in ribbon, scrapbook paper or paint. Additional embellishments could be rick rack, pipe cleaners, ruffle trim, stickers, feathers, flowers, glitter or anything else you may have or can think of.

Notes:
  • After you cut the cups out of the egg carton and square the edges up, they aren't very deep. I used 5/8" ribbon and it worked well for mine. 
  • If desired, trim ribbon to lay on the flat part (bottom) and glue it on. Then I cut four pieces to glue to the sides (this was easier than trying to deal with making one long piece of ribbon lay flat since the sides of the egg carton are at an angle). 
  • The handle is a pipe cleaner glued to the inside of the egg cup.
  • At this point it's all about trim and embellishment!
  • I think Jelly Belly's or Tic Tacs would be cute in the basket.
  • My bunny is from a package of food picks I bought at Walmart years ago.

🐇Make something just for fun and have a happy day~
