DIY; Bunny basket

This post was not sponsored. I was not paid nor received anything for this post.

     Since it's almost Easter I decided to try and make a miniature bunny basket. This technique however should work with just about anything and at any size. I used a juice container for the tiny bunny.

     All you will need is a craft knife and a pair of scissors to cut the shapes out of whatever containers you pick. Instructions will be with the pictures. It's fun and simple, you can make it out of any sort of solid container you can cut so if you have the tools and supplies, you can even cut through metal buckets or even those thick plastic ten gallon buckets.

     This basket can be used for a mini Easter basket, doll baskets, fairy baskets, holding tiny miniature plants in a fairy garden, something fun to hold a little trinket, a basket to give a tiny present in. It can be whatever you want it to be. Create your own plastic bottle basket with your own forms. Be creative, recycle and have a happy Easter or just a fun bunny craft day.

      Disclaimer; No bunnies were harmed in the making of this post but I cannot promise the same for the candy.
