DIY: Easter Baskets
What kid doesn’t love a basket full of candy?!
Ever since baby CJ’s first Easter, we have been DIY-ing his Easter Baskets. We started this because when your baby is 3 months old, you probably don’t want them to eat candy. Not that they even can. But, there is really nothing premade for babies at stores, so the DIY route is always a good choice.
You may be asking, ‘why does a 3-month-old need an Easter Basket for anyway?’ Good point, by the way. They do not. But when you want to DIY Family Photos, they serve as props.
For baby CJ’s very first basket, we stuffed it with the green grass, a few empty eggs, and a stuffed bunny. We then used it as a prop next to him for photos. Doesn’t he look adorable?!
So, why not make your own Easter Basket? It’ll be cheaper and you get to fill them with things they’ll love.
Here are some DIY Easter Basket ideas to get you inspired!
- Traditional Easter Basket
This year I opted for minimal amount of candy and instead filled it with toys and stickers.
- Easter Jar/Cup
These cups turned out better than I expected. I filled these with starburst and a variety of chocolates. I also included blank dreamcatchers along with paint and brush.
- Carrot Treat Bag
I stumbled upon these cute bags from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom on Pinterest and I couldn’t help but think, ‘how did I not think of this before!’. They are so easy to make and they are super adorable!
- Rain Boots Easter Basket
Another great Pinterest find were these awesome Rain Boot Easter Basket alternative from I Heart Arts n Crafts.
