We comfortably made x6 baskets following the above budget which came to a cost of $14.85 per basket, WIN!
 
You’ll also need sticky tape, scissors and glue (ideally a glue gun if you have one).

First you’ll want to bring the basket handle together so they can meet at the top and centre of the basket. Secure this with a little tape.
Optional: you can glue gun the hinges for extra security however it should be stable enough.

When choosing colours, try to match your tissue paper, shredded paper and bunny ears for each basket. We went with pink, purple or yellow baskets.

Grab yourself three sheets of tissue paper and create the first layer inside the basket.

Throw in a small scrunched piece of butchers paper so your goodies don’t sink into the basket as you want them to comfortably lay on top.

Add shredded paper on top of the butchers paper covering the whole surface area.

Originally, we searched for bunny ears but nothing beat the look of these adorable bunny ear hair clips!
And they curve beautifully along the basket handle.

Glue the bottom of the clip and place on the basket handle to create cute bunny ears. Hold until the glue is set enough so the ears can stand on their own.

Ok now we have the foundation of our Easter basket nicely colour coordinated. Time for Easter decorations!
Select two colours for each basket. We want these to differ from the foundation colour so they stand out. Check out the below colours we chose to coordinate.

Now add your colourful Easter chocolates.
If you’re very extra (like me), purchase Easter eggs with wrapping to suit your basket for an extra special detailed touch.
