Simple DIY Bunny Easter Basket

You can make this DIY Bunny Easter Basket in under 30 minutes for under $10 in materials! I’ve partnered with Global Purpose to show how you can turn their Help One Now Giving Bags into sweet bunny Easter baskets. Texas friends, these bags are part of their new spring line that can be found at your local HEB floral department. However, any simple basket will work for this project.

Global Purpose was founded as a social enterprise to provide education and income opportunities to women and children living in vulnerable communities, including Haiti, Uganda, and India. They currently provide fair wages and training for 50 teachers at 4 schools across Haiti, and 16 teachers in rural Uganda. And through those teachers, the future of over 2,000 students each school year are directly affected. Your purchase helps create a more hospitable world for everyone – such a worthy goal, especially at Easter time!

Their bags are are great for holding bouquets of flowers (they are even lined with plastic on the inside), but they offer lots of DIY possibilities too. For instance, remember how I created Halloween “BOO” bags with the Help One Now giving bags last year? I just love these versatile bags!

How to Make a DIY Bunny Easter Basket

Step 1. Cut four 2″ long pieces of black pipe cleaner with scissors. Bend two of them into eyes and two of them to form the bunny’s mouth.

Step 2. Cut six 3″ long pieces of white pipe cleaners. These will be the bunny’s whiskers.

Step 3. Freehand cut two ears from pink and white felt. Adhere the white felt to the pink felt with a little hot glue.

Step 4. Start by adding the eyes to the basket with a bead of hot glue along the backside of the pipe cleaner. Center the eyes under one of the bag’s handles.

Lastly, fill with colorful grass and Easter eggs, or a special Easter gift. If you don’t live in Texas where Help One Now bags are available, this technique could be used to turn just about any bag or basket into an Easter bunny!
