Easter is quickly approaching. I feel a bit behind this year since it’s so soon after spring break for us. Besides Christmas, Easter is one of my favorite holidays to bake and create for. There are so many different candy options and it’s fun to come up with recipes and creations using it. One thing I made a few years ago and decided to do again this year was DIY Candy Easter Baskets.
These DIY Candy Easter Baskets are fun to make and the perfect gift for a teen or significant other, especially one that has a love of sweets.
Here is what you’ll need:
- 4 boxes of candy (close to the same size)
- Cardstock or a piece of cardboard
- candy eggs
- Easter grass
- Nerds rope
- Glue gun
The first thing you will do is hot glue the candy boxes together. You can see how I did it below.
Next you’re going to want to put something hard under the boxes. I used a manila folder only because I didn’t want to go to the garage to get cardboard. But either way, you need to trace something harder and glue it to the bottom of the boxes.
Next, grab the Nerds rope and hot glue it to the sides of the boxes.
This will be the “handle” of the basket.
After that, fill the box with the Easter grass. You can put as much as you’d like. The more in there, the better it will hold the candy eggs (which you put on top.)
That’s it. I made two DIY Candy Easter Baskets in under 20 minutes and for under $20!
