DIY Easter Basket

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you’re having a great time with your families.

I don’t have children of my own, but my niece and nephew are like my babies. So I tend to do little things for them for the Holidays. My niece is still too little for candy and chocolate, so I got her the best thing ever; bunny ears. No, I didn’t have them on. I swear!… OK-ok, first thing I did when I got home, was to put them on.


For my 15 year old nephew, although he would love bunny ears (no he wouldn’t), candy is more this thing. And although the thought of getting him a pastel color basket, filled with flower and pretty things, appeals to the mischievous side. I prefer getting a smile on his face. You know teenage boys never-ever smile.

This was him and I yesterday at an Egg Hunt. He wouldn’t look up, but this picture came out pretty good so I am sharing with y’all.

Instead of doing something pink and glittery for my nephew, I headed to CVS and picked up a few of his favorite candy and made him an Easter Candy Basket.

This is what you’ll need:

Here’s what I did:

The entire basket cost me about $6.00USD and his face was priceless. He loved it and it was unique to him. Five minutes of work, got me the smile I was seeking from my nephew.

Like I always say, try to think outside the box and be creative. The best gifts are those that comes and are made from the heart.
