Easter seems to have crept up on me this year. Suddenly I have too many projects and too little time to post them. So here are 2 projects crammed into one.
The first is a basket made out of a plastic soft drink bottle. An adult will need to assist in this project as it requires some fairly heavy duty cutting and a burning candle flame. I used the flame to heat the petals of the flower basket in order to keep them in place. This isn’t as difficult or dangerous as it sounds! You simply bend back the petal and slowly bring the folded part closer to the flame until it slightly buckles and stays in place. I then covered the basket with tissue paper and PVA, but you could also spray paint it for a faster finish.

The next project is a quick and easy Easter Bunny face that doubles as a treat bag to store your eggs.
To make this bag, you will need 3 x paper plates, ribbon or string, a stapler and items to decorate the face. Click here for full instructions
