In today’s lesson, we are going to discover how to create an easter basket drawing on paper. The size of each part will be considered in each step of the lesson. Note that the blue lines have been drawn to indicate the newest lines being created in each in each of the steps.
Time Needed: 20 minutes
Outline The Basket’s Body
First, create the border of the basket’s opening by drawing two lines curving upwards. Next, add the basket’s base by drawing a shorter line curving upwards but, this time, farther from the first two lines. The size of your Easter basket will be determined by how far you draw the bottom line from the other two lines.
Add The Basket’s Sides
Draw a line that touches the ends of each line you made earlier. Do this for both sides as shown.
Attach The Basket’s Handle
Attach the basket’s handle to the body by forming two U-shaped lines.
Add A Ribbon Bow
Now, let’s add a ribbon bow to the basket’s handle. Start by drawing a circle to form the bow’s center. Then, draw the folded parts of the ribbon. Next, attach the ends of the ribbon by drawing the shape as shown. Erase the drawn parts of the basket’s handle that intersects with the bow.
Draw The Weaving Pattern
Let’s add a weaving pattern to the basket’s body by drawing diagonal lines.
Continue The Weaving Pattern
Continue making the weaving pattern by drawing diagonal lines in the opposite direction.
Outline The Eggs
An Easter basket is not complete if it’s still empty! Let’s add a few Easter eggs in the basket by drawing ovals.
Decorate The Easter Eggs
Draw circles and random patterns as shown to decorate the Easter eggs in the basket.
Complete The Easter Basket Drawing
Let’s finish the drawing by coloring the Easter basket with a brown crayon. Pick your favorite color and use it to shade the ribbon bow. Finally, color in the Easter eggs in the basket with any color you like. The more vibrant, the better!
