Paper Plate Easter Basket

Share This Page

“Hoppy Easter,” reads this sign as a worn out bunny rests in a basket of eggs. The basket is made from a paper plate, folded in half. Patterns for the bunny head, feet, sign, flowers and eggs make this an easy project. Add a little Easter straw and find a place to hang this decoration on the wall with some Fun Tac.

  • White construction paper
  • Pastel colors of construction paper (eggs)

  1. Fold the paper plate in half.
  2. Color the bunny face, feet, sign and flowers. Carefully cut them out along the outside of the black lines.
  3. Glue the bunny head to the inside back of the folded plate. Glue the feet to the inside front of the paper plate. Fold the 1 ¼”x 9″ piece of paper in half and tape or glue one side to the inside back and the other end to the inside front of the plate. Glue the sign on the handle.
