Everyone has paper plates around, right? I find uses for them all the time, and mostly it’s not for holding foods! They work perfectly for make this baskets, and you can switch it up to go along with any holiday or occasion…even just for fun! The best part about them is how quick and simple they are to make….just a few minutes from start to finish!

Directions

  1. Cut two slits on opposite sides of the plate. Go in until the cuts are past the ‘ruffled rim’ edge.
  2. Fold along the bottom of the cuts all the way across on both sides, so there’s a crease.
  3. Fold right along the cuts across, bringing the sides up. Have the little cut ‘side’ folded behind.
  4. Tape the two sides securely.
  5. You’re done with your basket! Fill as desired 🙂

I filled mine with some fake grass, then some baskets have Easter Eggs inside.

In others, I put some wax paper and then a bunch of my Dad’s Healthier Cookies. The average cookie is the PERFECT size to fit in a row inside these fabulous baskets!

I also added ribbon on the outsides for a fun little POP of color! Pretty pastels in green and purple just shout SPRING to me! I’m letting my kiddos color the white part of the plates to create their own, unique ones to take to a couple friends because, well, why not?
