Easter is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than by making a unique and fun Easter basket? Instead of using the traditional wicker basket, why not make an Easter basket out of candy boxes? This is a fun and creative way to create a one-of-a-kind Easter basket that will surely impress everyone. Here’s how you can make your own candy box Easter basket.
- Assorted candy boxes
- Floral Foam
- Hot Glue Gun
- Assorted candy with sticks (see video for examples)
- Assorted candy for filler
- Cellophane Easter Basket bags
Step 1: Gather candy boxes of various sizes and shapes. You can use boxes from any type of candy, as long as they are sturdy enough to hold the Easter treats.
Step 2: Arrange the boxes in a way that creates the shape of a basket. Use larger boxes for the bottom of the basket and smaller boxes for the sides.
Step 3: Once you have arranged the boxes, glue the sides of the boxes together to create a solid structure. Use tape to reinforce the sides if needed.
Step 4 (optional): Cut strips of ribbon and tie them around the sides of the basket, covering the seams where the boxes are glued together. This will give the basket a more finished look.
Step 5: Add any decorations you like, such as Easter-themed stickers or faux flowers. You can also fill the basket with Easter grass or shredded paper for a more traditional look.
Step 6: Fill the basket with Easter treats such as chocolate eggs, candy, and small toys.
Step 7: Wrap the basket in cellophane or use a cellophane easter basket bag and use a bow to tie up the top of the bag.
And voila! You now have a unique and festive Easter basket made out of candy boxes. This is a great way to create a memorable Easter decoration. It’s also a fun activity to do with kids who can help decorate and fill the basket with Easter treats. Happy Easter!
