Easter basket ideas - DIY Candy gift basket

Materials used: a basket, Peeps®, peanut butter eggs, a packaged chocolate bunny, decorative Easter grass, floral foam, wooden skewers, and tools (hot glue gun with glue sticks, scissors, and wire cutters).

Easy Easter Crafts - Step 1. Prepare floral foam and a basket that you would like to use in your arrangement.

Note: The bigger the basket, the more candy pieces you will need to use to have a nice full looking arrangement.

Step 2. Cut the floral foam so that it fits into the basket. You can use hot glue to secure the floral foam to the bottom of the basket. The foam should sit lower than the rim of the basket.

Step 3. Cover the foam with the decorative plastic grass securing it with floral pins as necessary (the color of the decorative grass should complement the basket). If you have any voids between the foam and the basket, stuff them with the decorative grass.

Step 4. Add a chocolate bunny to the arrangement.

a) Take a packaged chocolate bunny. Attach two pieces of bamboo skewer a couple of inches apart to the back of the package, using hot glue. You can apply clear packing tape over it for a more secure attachment.

b) Insert the packaged chocolate bunny in the middle of the arrangement.

Step 5. Add Peeps to the arrangement.

a) Prepare Peeps you want to use in your candy bouquet. Take the Peeps out of the package and carefully separate them using a knife. I used pink and yellow bunny shaped Peeps. Insert the pointy end of a skewer into each of the Peeps. Using wire cutters cut the ends off of the skewers to adjust the length as all “Peeps flowers” should be of different heights.

b) Tie a piece of curling ribbon of the corresponding color around each “candy flower.”
