Easter Baskets to Make

Every year I get new Easter baskets for my kids. We usually don’t make baskets for the Easter egg hunts, but I do like to make baskets for decorations. However, I started looking around for great Easter baskets to make and decided, this year I really need to try to make my own. Do a little recycling, a little crafting and tie it up with a fancy Easter ribbon and call it fabulous! Here are some ideas to get you started.
