A super cute fence style Easter basket made from scrap wood and paint stir sticks. I’m sharing the free plans to build this fun Easter project down below.
Earlier this week I posted my Martha inspired Easter basket complete with all the chocolate bunnies and eggs.
I promised plans for the actual basket and I’m here to deliver. But if you want more details on the faux chocolate bunnies and eggs plus check out 5 more Martha inspired blogger Easter baskets click here.
Down below I share the free plans in addition to real life steps as I built these baskets. Be sure to read through all steps before beginning.

- 1×8 scraps
- 1×2 scraps
- 2 (10 packs) paint stir sticks
- 1 – 3/4″ dowel @ 9 1/2″l
- wood glue
- miter saw
- pneumatic nail gun
- 1 1/4″ finish nails
- 5/8″ finish nails
- 3/4″ forster bit
Step 2: Boxes assembled. You can see I used some leftover scrap wood here.
Be sure to predrill the hole for the handle about 1/2″ deep. Use a 3/4″ forstner bit and make the hole centered on the board.
To make it easier to cut the pickets I kept the plastic wrapping on the stir sticks and cut at a 30 degree angle.
Use wood glue and 5/8″ finish nails to attach the pickets. Fill all the nail holes with wood putty and finish as desired.
Add some Easter grass and all the goodies! I hope you enjoyed this fence style Easter basket, be sure to share your finished projects.
