Make a Candy Easter Basket this Easter holiday for your friend, grandchild or your own child! A simple DIY that you can create in less than 30 minutes!
Are you looking for that perfect Easter Basket, for a friend, a grandchild or your own child? This Candy Easter Basket is it! The basket is actually made of candy, what can be better! Plus it is super easy to put together and can be done in less than 30 minutes!
Start out by measuring the size of your basket so you will know how large to cut your base. My basket is 6 x 7.5 inches. I used a piece of yellow cardstock and cut it to that measurements for the base.
The point of the basket is to be able to eat the candy the basket is made of, but you also want it to stick together well too. To put it all together I used Hot glue, but laid it down in dots. That way the boxes will come apart when the recipient is ready to disassemble, but will still hold the pieces together easily.
The last piece the basket needs is a handle. That is where the Nerds Rope comes into play. Now I should mention the handle is only for looks. You won’t want to carry the basket by the handle. Put a bit of glue on each end of the rope and adhere to the center of the side boxes, then shape the rope as needed to give it a nice curve.
This is such a fun and unique Easter Basket. Who wouldn’t love to receive one of these! Tell me in the comments who you are going to make one for.
