Easter Basket

Materials:

Small cup or bowl
Craft sticks
Hot glue and glue gun
Pipe cleaner
Wire cutters

Steps:

1. To begin with, you will need a small bowl or cup. Try to pick something with sides which are more or less vertical.

2. Cut down your craft sticks so that they are just a little bit taller than the cup. I recommend wire pliers for doing this easily.

3. Use hot glue to attach them all around the sides.
