How to Make a Candy Easter Basket
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 and 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.
That’s it! You’re done. Fill the basket with some Easter grass and anything else you will like to add to the basket, like even more candy!
These fun Candy Baskets aren’t just for Easter either, they are also great for Mother’s Day, Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, or May Basket!
You can even turn them into a flower arrangement!
