For todays blog post I decided to share with you guys these cute and easy to make Pintrest inspired candy box baskets. I love DIY-ing anything, it’s fun and therapeutic for me. These baskets were so easy and inexpensive, sure you can find dollar or even 50 cent baskets anywhere really, but what kid isn’t going to love a basket made of candy! I have two Godkids and two young cousins so I decided to make them some fun and yummy looking baskets for them to enjoy on Easter Day. I purchased the decorations and candy boxes I used at the Dollar Store and Target. The total for each basket was around $5-6, which is a good price for a DIY easter basket.

What you will need:

Hot glue gun (any type of adhesive glue), your choice of candy, candy boxes, easter stickers, easter eggs, decorative easter picks, fuzzy jumbo sticks (any type of material to make a basket handle), easter basket grass, and whatever else you’d like to add.

As for actually creating the box form, it is REALLY easy no joke lovelies. All you need to do is hot glue the candy boxes as if making a square (rectangular) shape with them. YES it’s that simple.

 As for the bottom of the basket, to close it off, I used sturdy construction paper. This worked fine for me, but you can also use another candy box at the bottom your choice.

   Now comes the fun part, DECORATING! I bought some foam easter stickers from Targets Spritz brand. I think these went perfectly on the candy baskets, they also come with a variety of stickers that go along with the Easter theme.

                      The second to last step is making the handle for the basket I made it using fuzzy jumbo sticks, that I purchased from Target. I mixed a couple of fun colors the kids would like and twisted them together and shaped them into a handle shape. After that I hot glued them to the inside of the candy basket, let it sit for about 10 minutes and BOOM you got yourself a cool DIY Easter Basket! Loved the end result of these Easter baskets, they turned out so cute and vibrant with Easter colors. They were inexpensive, easy to create, and you can personalize them to the individual to which your gifting them to.

The last step is to fill them with goodies for the kids! I filled them with several different easter themed candies, toys, and other little fun items (like bunny ears).
