This DIY basket project offers a great alternative to more traditional basket designs. First of all, it foregoes the need to know how to weave, which is a skill not many do-it-yourselfers have even if they are very crafty to begin with. Instead, the DIY basket is made using a simple paper bag, which is also admirably eco-friendly.
Created by Melissa Bahen of Lulu the Baker, the DIY basket is a fun option for Easter and other holidays or special occasions. It gives such offerings a playful twist that manages to also come off as more genuine and thoughtful. Incredibly easy to make, the DIY basket requires fun string and a hole punch to execute. Once put together, people can put whatever they want inside, from candy to flowers and more.
