Paper Cup Basket

Paper Cup Basket

Here is a simple project to make a Easter basket using a paper cup.

What you need

Paper cup
Wire for Handles
or Piper cleaner


Take your paper cup and cutting lines down the cup around 1/4 of an inch apart all the way around.

If the kids are doing the cutting they can use decorative scissors or blunt kids scissors for safety.

Once the cuts have been made around 1/3 of the way down the cup just roll them down with your fingers.

If the kids are having trouble they can roll them around a pencil. This will give it a curly edged effect.

Use some wire to make a handle or for ease-ability use a soft chenille stick which will add decoration to the basket.

You can add the handle to basket with strong tape, glue or just pop it through the cup. Then bend it on the other-side.

It really depends on how much weight you intend to put in the basket.

Decorate with pens or paints add some shredded paper and you have a very cute inexpensive basket.
