DIY Easter baskets make for a special, memorable spring holiday. No more cheap, disposable junk! These ideas are the cutest!
When I had one child, the annual Easter basket was pretty simple — until a few years passed and I suddenly had all these random baskets floating around that had absolutely no use beyond springtime. By the time we had three kids, we needed an Easter basket intervention. I hated the idea of spending lots of money on baskets that were just going to be shoved in a closet or worse, thrown away.
DIY Easter Baskets
I had to change my tactics! The past several years, we’ve looked for unique ways to deliver the Easter goodies for our kids. The criteria was simple:
- It had to be something reusable. I love baskets and use them all over my house. But didn’t want anymore of those cheap plastic things to crowd my closets. I looked for baskets that would fit on a shelf and store toys or homemade hair bows for my girls!
- We have stuffed Easter treats inside new rain boots in past years and it was a big hit! The nice thing about this idea is that my girls need new rain boots as their feet grown. So new boots have become a fun tradition.
- I love to crochet and make lots of things for my kids. I love the crocheted Easter basket in this list!! It will make an adorable clutch for them to play dress up after Easter.
- This year, our Easter Bunny is filling umbrellas! Our family of 5 is too big for one umbrella and my girls are big enough to hold their own!
