Easter Basket Alternative – The Cone

Easter Basket Alternative - The Cone

 

Easter Baskets are basically the same thing I had as a kid so very, very long ago. :) I was looking for something new.  So I got to thinking of things I could use for Easter instead of a basket and I came up with this cone. Isn’t this so much fun? And it’s super easy to make too!

Here is what you’ll need:

  • A paper mache cone
  • 1 inch pom poms in pink, white, blue, purple and yellow
  • 2 inch pom poms in white
  • hot glue
  • Easter Grass
  • Ribbon

I simply hot glued (you could use Aileene’s Tacky Glue or a cool temp glue gun if you are working with children) the pom poms on starting with the tip.

Before I got all the way to the top I punched a hole in each side of the cone with my crop-a-dile and threaded ribbon through the hole and tied a knot.

Fill in the last row with the 2 inch pom poms and fill with Easter Grass.

If you don’t want the contents to fall all the way to the tip you might want to insert a circle of cardboard or foam before putting in the grass.

Wouldn’t these would look super cute hanging from dining chairs on Easter Sunday?
