How to Make a Easter Basket – 6-Simple Steps

If you’re wondering how to make a Easter basket, it’s more than likely because you’ve seen the pre-packaged Easter baskets available at the supermarket.  Unlike certain fruit basket companies, where the edible bouquet is made to order, many Easter Baskets are pre-packaged, exuding the qualities associated with most products ‘Made In China.’

Below are six simple steps on how to make a Easter basket that oozes with personality and love:

What’s needed?

  • 1-wicker basket or deep container
  • 1-Roll of lightly tinted cellophane wrap
  • Straw, shredded paper or tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Transparent tape
  • A ribbon or bow
  • Candy  (Peeps)
  • Favorite snacks
  • Fruit

The most important tip on how to make a Easter basket is to use the imagination.

1)    In order to get started on  your project on “how to make an Easter Basket,” first gather all the toys, candy snacks, gift certificates, books, stuffed animals and personalized items you plan  add to the Easter basket.

Some consumers order a fruit basket with fresh pieces of fruit in a traditional basket and fill it with the personal goods.

3)    Arrange the contents of the Easter basket, so that the items don’t cascade once the basket is opened. Use tissue paper or straw to help rig the gifts to hold them in place. Also, try to conceal some of the Easter baskets’ contents so all the goodies are not visible.
