Easter Basket Instructions:

  1. Print your chick templates.  There is one all ready to color in and one that is blank to make into any face or animal you would like.
  2. Gather your supplies: Glue, scissors and crayons/markers.
  3. Color/Paint/decorate your chicks however you may like.  There are wings that can hold hearts with Easter sayings you can glue to the front side.
  4. Cut out the basket piece and handle.   Cut carefully between the triangular edge pieces.  
  5. Bend the triangular pieces away from the face sides of the basket.
  6. Glue the triangular pieces on the basket’s edge to the underside of the face pieces bending with the contour of the curve of the edge.  Do this on both sides and allow your piece to dry. 
  7. Glue your handle to the inside of your basket.

Get creative with your designs and make each card and basket unique. You can add personal messages, drawings, or even little surprises inside the baskets. The sky's the limit, so let your imagination run wild!

Easter Basket Making

Impasto Bunny Painting Instructions:

  1. Download the bunny outline from Time for Art
  2. Gather household supplies: Baking soda, water, and table knife
  3. Get out any acrylic paint you may have on hand and mix with white (create a tint) to achieve more pastel like colors
  4. Paint in any pattern to create a background for your bunny. I did in mine in painterly transitioning stripes. Allow to dry.
  5. Mix 1 part white paint with 1 part baking soda. For this project I used approximately 1/2 c. Paint and 1/2 c. Baking soda. Add water droplets to achieve the rich mousse like consistency.
  6. Apply impasto paint in the outlined area with any kind of knife or spatula. I used a table knife. Start with the ears, then the head, then the body, and then the tail. Save any extra paint in a plastic locking bag. Allow to dry overnight. Tip: use a dehumidifier to help the impasto paint dry evenly. Using this method will allow the paint to not crust or crack. After my bunny dried completely I reapplied paint to the tail to give it more depth.
