Things to make with Strawberry Baskets
Now that strawberry season is once again upon us, I have been brainstorming ways to reuse those green plastic strawberry baskets. Here’s a quick little project just in time for Easter: woven Easter baskets!
I cut thin strips of scrapbook paper to decorate my baskets, but you could also use ribbon. These make perfect little baskets to give to friends, nieces/nephews and family. You’ll see in the basket pictured above a beautiful box of Barnum’s Animal Crackers decorated by Lilly Pulitzer. So cute! (Sales of this special box will support tiger conservation through the World Wildlife Fund.) But I can also imagine a basket filled with decorated sugar cookies, chocolate eggs or a chocolate bunny.

Plastic strawberry baskets
Ribbon or strips of paper cut to fit in the slots of your baskets
Optional: dried flowers, decorative eggs or other adornments

This is so simple! Weave the ribbon or strips of paper in and out of the openings in the strawberry basket. If using paper, use a glue stick to connect additional pieces of paper to weave around the entire perimeter of the basket. Use the glue stick to secure the ends with each other.
