Easter Basket


Easter festivities are about to begin and It is time to start planning for the upcoming Easter holiday! Start your festive preparations by making these cute little Easter Baskets!!!These would also be perfect for Easter gifts! You could also tailor the colors and use it to give Christmas or Valentine's Day gifts.

These baskets are just the right size for your little one to use at the Easter egg hunt.Also, crochet one of these baskets, fill it with flowers and make it a great display item for your Easter themed decorations.

I like making handmade gifts and I think these Easter Baskets are so much better than store bought baskets because handmade gifts do really show that they were made with love!!!
