Using strawberry baskets to make an Easter basket

Have you ever finished a basket of yummy sweet strawberries and decided to keep the basket for future use?  I do this ALL of the time!  I have given used strawberry baskets to many teachers for their classes to create Easter baskets.  It is a fun way to “up cycle”.

Start with extra fluffy pipe cleaners, colorful ribbon, and the baskets

Thread the ribbon through the basket and tie a bow.  Add a second layer of ribbon, if desired.

Push the pipe cleaner through the end of the basket, using the center opening.  Repeat on the other side.

If you want to make the bows on the ends of the basket, thread the ribbon through the front and back of the basket, leaving extra ribbon on each end.  Then tie a bow on each end.

Add the pipe cleaner and the basket is complete.  Add Easter grass and a large filled plastic egg.  VERY cute!
