#1: Rainbow Basket
Materials Needed: White Easter basket, paper filling in rainbow colors (we got ours at Target,) plastic eggs in rainbow colors, ribbon in rainbow colors, rainbow candies (we used the Lindt GOLD BUNNY, LINDOR eggs, mini Lindt GOLD BUNNY, Lindt Mini Chicks, Lindt Mini Lambs, & Lindt Chocolate Carrots)
Start by creating rainbow stripes using paper filling in the basket. Top each stripe with eggs and candy in matching colors. Measure out ribbon in rainbow colors that match the paper filling stripes in the basket. Tie all the ribbon together in a bow on the top handle of the basket.
#2: Paper Flowers Basket
Start by making at least 20 paper flowers in different sizes (here is our favorite tutorial) Add 3-4 leaves to each flower to add greenery. Starting with the bigger flowers, curl the wire stems around the basket handle and down the side of the basket. Fill in any gaps with smaller flowers.
#3: Ribbon Basket
I always add ribbon to my easter baskets. Choose a thick satin ribbon and tie it to the top handle of the basket. Choose a smaller satin ribbon and tie it on top of the thick satin ribbon. Use glue dots or double-sided tape to attach it down the side of the handle.
