If you love clothespin crafts as much as I do, you better go ahead and add these clothespin Easter baskets to your must-make list. They’re a lot of fun to make – and easy, too. Here are step-by-step instructions.

Take Out Containers

Grab a couple shallow containers to serve as the base for your basket. I used clear take-out containers, but you could easily cut down a milk carton or an oatmeal container, if you don’t have any on hand.

Clip Clothespins on the Container

Clip clothespins onto the side of your container to figure out how many you’ll need for your basket.

Paint the Clothespins

Then, take the clothespins back off, and give them a coat of paint.

Add Trim to Your Clothespin Basket

When they’re dry, clip the clothespins back onto the container to form your basket. Then, add a handle. I used a stick that I picked up on a walk, but you could easily use a chenille stem or a piece of wired ribbon instead. If you want to get a bit fancier, try stringing some beads on a piece of wire.

Then, add any embellishments that you’d like, and you’re basket is ready to use!
