An Easy Personalized Easter Basket Idea

Make it "personal" with our personalized Easter Basket idea.

Personalized Easter Basket

We love to craft with the simple stuff. Anything we find at home is fair game. So when it comes to Easter basket ideas, we were "on it" in a flash. We started brainstorming at the kitchen table and next thing you know...we were "eyeing" the milk carton. We chugged a lot of milk to make these two personalized Easter baskets.

Ready to get your craft game on?

Let's take a look at our super easy instructions! Here's what you'll need:


  • An empty milk carton
  • Scissors or a serrated knife (adult supervision here!)
  • Colored construction paper or
  • Tempera paints
  • Hole puncher
  • Glue
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Markers
  • Stickers and small objects for decoration


  • Rinse out an empty milk carton
  • Using a serrated knife, cut the milk carton in half
  • Mark a piece of colored construction paper to fit the around the outside of the carton. Glue in place...OR
  • Paint the sides of the milk carton with paint and let dry....your choice!
  • Punch 2 holes on opposite sides of the carton (for your handle)
  • Braid two pipe cleaners and place through the holes to form a handle
  • Decorate the sides of the "basket" with markers, stickers, buttons, name it!
  • Fill with Easter "grass" and other holiday goodies
This makes a great child arts and crafts project and adapts itself well to any party theme. Have a great time with this activity.
