How to make products for the holiday of paper

Sometimes you really want to make something bright and spring, so that the holiday of Bright Easter would be even more joyful. Making this basket will be the solution to this problem. Material costs are minimal, and the result is simply enchanting. The color of the design depends on the selected fabric.


  • Cardboard of different colors - 3 sheets;
  • Scissors - 1 piece;
  • The cloth -1 meter.

Let's start:

From cardboard cut into longitudinal strips five inches wide. And it is necessary to cut a circle with a diameter of fifteen centimeters from one sheet of paper. The fabric is also cut into strips five inches wide. For convenience, roll them into rolls.

For such crafts it is better to use chiffon or old tulle.

Pile the cardboard sheets together and glue them together. Attach the bottom from above, it will be better if its color matches the color of the fabric. Bend the strips up. Take a strip of cloth and wrap the strips of cardboard in a circle. Between each vertical strip the fabric should be twisted, so the basket will be more volume of it. And do not firmly tighten the tissue strips.
When you go to the top, then hide the end of the fabric between the rows. A strip of cardboard wrap in fabric, bending them as tightly as possible. That's it, the basket is ready.

On the feast of Easter, it is customary to give eggs not only in baskets, but also in interesting stands. Or they can be issued individually for each guest and put on a festive table. In a word, there would be a desire, and it is up to you to decide where to apply such beauty.

  • Paint - 2 pieces;
  • Brush - 1 piece;
  • Glue gun - 1 piece;
  • Office knife - 1 piece;
  • The decor is at the discretion.


I cut four boxes from the carton, but you can take the whole or just the amount you need. Use the brush to paint the blank in turquoise. And give it a good dry.Then we do not paint the stand very well with white beauty.Then, using a clerical knife, cut off the excess.From one edge, in the center, we make a small cut for the postcard.You can tint the card with special ink, I had green ones and I walked them along the edge of the whole picture.Then gently with a brush made a few green drops on it.We insert the card into the stand and decorate each cell with artificial grass.Add a variety of flowers. I stuck them on a glue gun.Stand ready.

DIY Handicrafts for Easter

  • Color paper - 2 sheets;
  • Scissors - 1 piece;
  • PVA glue - 1 piece.

What do we have to do:

We cut the paper into strips 2 centimeters thick. And we twist them into not very dense rolls.Begin to glue the basket from the bottom row. To achieve the effect of expanding it to the top, each row should be glued by sliding three millimeters from the edge. Then add a pen and decorate with flowers. Your cart is ready.

Simple Easter baskets for kids

And finally, I prepared several short photo lessons on making simple paper baskets for children. They may need your help, but not much at all. And let it turn out not the same as in the storebut it is made with his own hands.

Basket of old glossy magazines

Surely at home, everyone has not needed glossy magazines. So let them into business and beautiful, and useful, and mini cleaning.

Necessary materials:

  • Multicolored glossy magazine - 1 piece;
  • Office knife - 1 piece;
  • PVA glue - 1 piece.

Let's start:

Using a clerical knife, cut two centimeters wide strips from sheets of a magazine. And another sheet divided in half and inside each half to make incisions 2 cm wide, but not completely.And now each strip is inserted into the sheet alternating cuts. Fill the sheets completely, sticking the ends and attach the handle.Add decoration to your taste and the basket is ready.

Easy basket for children

This option is very simple and requires a minimum of materials. Even children up to school age can make it on their own.


  • Color double-sided paper - 1 sheet;
  • Carton sleeve - 1 piece;
  • Scissors - 1 piece;
  • Glue - 1 piece.

Let's start:

From the sleeve of toilet paper or paper towels cut off a piece of 5 centimeters. From a color paper cut a rectangle 12 * 20 centimeters.And we cut strips in it, not reaching the end of 4 centimeters, but 1.5 centimeters wide. Glue the sleeve to the not cut side, then fold the stripes back and glue. Last glue handle. The cart is ready.

Handicrafts from old newspapers made by hand

And again we will use unnecessary newspapers, here the size of the baskets directly depends on the amount of waste paper in your home.


  • Newspapers are not limited;
  • Glue gun - 1 piece.

What we do:

We turn each sheet of the newspaper into a tight tube. For convenience, glue that they would not unwind.And start folding them. As soon as the sheet ends, drip glue on it, add a new straw and twist further.

To make a pen, roll up a couple of sheets of paper at the same time; it will be more voluminous.

Spin the sheets to get the basket of the desired volume. Do not forget to glue them. Attach the handle at the very end. It can be left unchanged, and you can, if desired, paint in any color.
