Easter Bunny Paper Plate Basket

You will need:

  • Large Paper Plate
  • Google Eyes
  • Pompom
  • Paper Fasteners
  • PVA Glue
  • White & Pink Foam
  • White Pipecleaners
  • Card for Handle


  1. Mark the centre of a paper plate. Divide the plate into 4 quarters by drawing lines through the centre point.  Cut along each line but leave 5 cms towards the centre uncut.
  2. Fold each quarter up and use paper fasteners to fasten at each corner.
  3. Cut out a head and ears from the funky foam and glue together. Cut pipecleaners as whiskers and glue on along with the pompom.
  4. Glue the rabbit face to the front of the basket.
  5. Cut a strip of coloured card and attach to the basket as a handle
  6. Fill with shredded crepe and some Easter treats!!!
  7. Have fun creating your very own Easter Basket.  It doesn’t need to a be a rabbit! Try painting the plate yellow and make an Easter chick or a woolly lamb instead!!!
