Easter Craft- Basket Favors

What a cute way to brighten up your Easter Lunch table!

Materials:

  • Paper cups
  • White, green and yellow crepe paper
  • Floral wire
  • White cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Small hole punch
  • Floral tape
  • Craft glue

Method:

  1. Trim the top of the paper cups to make it about 5 ½ cm tall. Cut a strip of white crepe paper slightly wider and about 5 cm taller than the cup. Wrap the paper around the cup, and glue in place, tucking in the excess paper.
  2. Punch two small holes at opposite sides of the cup, close to the top edge. Cut a piece of floral wire to a desired length for the handle. Loop the wire through the holes from the inside out, and fold the ends to secure the handle.
  3. Cut out a strip of green crepe paper into 5cm pleats. Using scissors, cut the top of the paper to resemble grass. Unfold and wrap around the cup, gluing the seam.
  4. For the daisy, accordion fold a 10 x 5 cm strip of white crepe paper into six or 8 2 1/5 cm pleats. Cut the paper into a petal shape. Cut a 11cm diameter circle out of white cardboard. Place the cardboard circle in the centre of a 5 ½ cm square of yellow crepe paper; gather the yellow paper around the circle, and twist the excess to create a stemlike nub. Wrap the white paper petals around the yellow nub to create a flower. Fasten and attach the daisy to the basket handle with floral tape.
