Step 1: Parts You Will Need

For this project, you will need

- 473 mL (16 oz) plastic drinking cup (you can get something bigger or smaller if you needed to)
- a few balls of wool (you want at least 2)
- gold pipe cleaner (you can use any colour if you wish)
- some basket filling
- easter eggs
- easter candies

For this project, you will need these tools

- glue stick (straight edge recomended, you know, the rectangle-shaped one)
- single-hole puncher
- scissors

Step 2: Punch Some Holes

You are going to start by taking your plastic cup and your single-hole puncher. You are going to punch a hole on the top of the cup. Once you have punched a hole, you will punch another one on the other side.

Step 3: Glue Time

Take your glue stick and apply glue all over the outside of the cup. Make sure when you apply glue, go in straight lines and not in circular directions (or any other directions). Use the pictures below for more details.

Step 4: Apply Wool

You are now going to apply your wool. You will cut long pieces (not too long). You will start by putting your wool at the very bottom of of the cup. You are going to put it in straight lines just like when you did the glue. When you put all of the wool you cut, you will cut some more pieces. You may need to put more glue on as glue sticks can dry fast. You need to go all the way to the very top. You need to go over the holes that you punched.

Step 5: Pipe Cleaner

You are now going to take your pipe cleaner and put it through the holes. You do not need to cut through. wrap them around the top of the cup.

Step 6: Add Filling

You are going to add the filling into your bucket. This is to make it look like a real easter basket.

Step 7: Ready!

You can now put your easter eggs and easter candies in your basket. You would like how it looks once your done! Want us to show your basket here? Just post it in the comment section.
