Easter Bunny Basket or Table Center Piece




This craft is straight out of this months Family Fun Magazine, but I thought it was so cute I had to make it and share it. This basket is perfect for Easter egg hunts, but I used it as a center piece of my Easter table. I think you could also place an Easter plant in it and it would be a great way to deliver it to Grandma.


This is a gallon milk jug with the top cut off. I decorated it with construction paper, glue and markers. I made really big ears, so I reinforced them with Popsicle sticks.

Caity made this Easter Bunny and we filled it with eggs.

Very cute! Your table is precious! I love the carrots hanging from your light...I'll have to steal that idea! I'm going to put a big sticky note on my computer right now to get a subscription to Family Fun Magazine! I always want to take it home with me when I flip through it at the doctors office.
