Want an alternative to a store-bought, plastic Easter basket? Here's a simple way to make your own using an old paper grocery bag.
Lia Griffith uses a simple paper weaving technique to make an upcycled DIY Easter basket from a paper bag. Pretty much any brown craft paper will do the trick. If you order anything on Amazon, that brown packing paper that they use would also work well for this project.
Combine this cute, upcycled Easter basket with some home-grown Easter grass, and you're on the way to a low-impact Easter that saves money and natural resources!
It only takes a few simple craft supplies to make your own DIY Easter basket, and I bet you have all of them in your stash right now.
Tools & Supplies:
