Easter is just one month away! Which seems crazy in the middle of our snow storm this last week, but totally true. Easter just wouldn’t be the same without a cute and colorful Easter basket filled with all sorts of goodies. We’re branching out from the traditional basket fillings this year and have found some really fun and creative Easter basket ideas to share with you.
From mini edible baskets to beautiful DIYs that’ll last until next year and beyond, we’ve got a perfect little something for everybunny. ;)

How To Make A Good Easter Basket
A good Easter basket is all about the fun and whimsy. We aren’t at Christmas so the gifts don’t have to be huge, but little special momentos can be the best way to go.
