Cute and Colorful Easter Eggs

Turn a bushel basket into a cheery catchall for Easter loot by adding a few bright stripes of paint and a pair of homemade pompoms. Add colorful Easter eggs inspired by chicks and cute characters for some extra festive flair.

Best dressed: Draw a face and hair on a ceramic egg. Wrap the bottom third of egg in thick yarn (tip: work from the middle down) and secure by brushing on white craft glue in sections. Create details like collars, bows, and buttons with felt and beads.

Dashing Design Egg: Follow tradition and dye your eggs first. Once dry, draw a series of short lines with a white paint marker.

Fuzzy Chick: Wrap a ceramic or wooden egg in yarn (tip: start at the top and work down) and secure by brushing on white craft glue in sections as you work. Use templates to make felt wings, feet, beak, and hair, and attach with glue. Glue on small black-bead eyes.

Fringe and Tassel Easter Basket

Make a plain square basket look magical with a few scraps of ribbon and trim, and fill with unicorn-inspired and sparkling Easter eggs.

Lovely Unicorn: Paint a wooden egg white; let dry. Draw on face. Cut a mane from faux-fur trim, color in an egg dye bath, and attach (once dry) with fabric glue. Use templates to make felt ears and a gold paper horn; assemble and glue to egg. Wrap a 3 x 1/8-in. strip of gold paper around horn; secure with glue. Glue star confetti to cheek and hair.

Shiny Silhouette: Use the templates to carefully cut a chick or bunny from a foil candy wrapper. Adhere to dyed egg with Mod Podge. Use a damp cotton swab to gently wipe clean the foil shape; let dry.

Dazzling Glitter Egg: Try this trick on basic plastic eggs: Lightly sand the outside, brush on glue, cover in glitter, and let dry.

Spring Chicken Balsa Wood Easter Baskets

To make the basket, cut a 15" x 2" balsa wood strip for the sides of the basket and a 9" x ⅝" strip for the handle. Soak these strips in a pan of water for at least 10 minutes. Remove from water and while still wet, use a steamer (or the steam button on an iron) to apply steam to the balsa wood strips as you gently bend them into shape (this will prevent kinks and cracks in the wood). Bring the short ends of the bigger strip together to form a 3" x 5" oval and create an arch with the smaller strip. Use clothespins to hold the ends of the side strip together and to hold the handle strip to the center of each of the longer oval sides; let dry completely (about 2 to 3 hours). Remove clothespins and hot-glue the pieces in place. To make the bottom of your basket, trace the inside of the oval onto a balsa wood sheet, cut out and hot-glue to the sides of the basket along the inside edge. Embellish the outside with velvet ribbon, scrapbooking flowers, paper tags, and more. For the chicks, dip doughnut holes in melted white chocolate, roll them in nonpareils, then add sprinkle eyes and a gummy candy beak.
