Easter Baskets 3 Ways

Today we’re sharing some of our favorite ways to decorate Easter baskets! We’ve partnered with Lindt (and our favorite classic GOLD BUNNY) to show you how.  (PS – Check out ALL our Easter ideas here!)

Easter Baskets 3 Ways | Oh Happy Day!

#1: Rainbow Basket

Materials Needed: White Easter basketpaper 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 BUNNYLindt 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

Materials: White Easter basket, crepe paper in pastel colors, floral wire, glue, ribbon, paper filling, plastic eggs, Lindt GOLD BUNNY

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

Materials: White Easter basket, paper filling, thick satin ribbon, thin satin ribbon, glue dots or double-sided tape, plastic eggs, Lindt GOLD BUNNYmini Lindt GOLD BUNNY

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.

    These are beautiful but I love the flowers basket the best. I’d be afraid to hand it to my child after spending all that time on flowers, ha!

    So cute! I made similar baskets like these but with wooden nests last year. I love adding flowers. and I think the matching shredded paper is a great idea!

    We’re going to be at Disney World during Easter & we thought about skipping the whole Easter basket thing since all of our money is going to Disney….but with all this Easter basket inspiration, I just might reconsider that decision!!
