When I was a kid, I like to went to the church when Easter, there were people selling Easter baskets full of snacks, candies, and Easter eggs. The baskets looked so cute and colorful, made of cardboard and colorful paper. And my mom always bought one for me and one for my brother. Sometime she also bought for my cousins. Ah, what a wonderful childhood memories!
Today, some church also have those tradition. They selling Easter basket at easter time. Kids love it so much! And I want my son to feel that happiness too. But since we live in a remote area, far away from big church, there is no such a Easter basket seller at the small church near by our house. So, I choose to make one that is similar with the old time. But I’m not using cardboard for basket base. I recycle tin into an Easter basket. And I use tissue paper from my shoes packaging as the embellishment. We have to recycling, to be zero waste, and to make our environment well managed.
Here is Indonesian traditional easter basket made by my son and me. Although the basket base is different than the old time, but the basket just looks like the one from my childhood:
Prepare a clean can, tissue paper, and two pieces die cut paper with bunny shape (but you can replace this with ribbon or lace as you like), craft glue, scissor, and a piece of cardboard to make the basket handle.
Cut tissue paper to make flower petals as picture above
Glue die cut paper or ribbon as picture above
Crincle the petals and glue as in the picture above
Last, glue die cut paper or ribbon on the bottom of the can as in the picture
And taraaaa..... your Easter backet is done! Put some snacks, candies, and Easter egg inside the basket, and enjoy the traditions!
Oh my God… this Easter basket so remind me of my childhood Easter traditions!
