Easter Basket Made from An Upcycled Grocery Bag

DIY-Paper-Bag-Easter-Basket This project is an oldie but goodie! I posted this basket a few years ago on my former blog and have seen it republished on other many websites and in several magazines. Last year I shared how to make a smaller version of this basket, which is also cute and has a brilliant method for keeping the pieces in place, but this one is still my favorite finished basket. I still have this basket as well as the fruit basket version of this tutorial and will be using all of them for my Easter decor this year. I am so excited for Easter! It is one of my favorite holidays for getting crafty and next week I will be sharing lots of printable Easter goodies! Enjoy this tutorial. ~ Lia
