In my opinion, holidays are the best excuse to get crafty. I love making little gifts or favors for each and every holiday. With Easter just a few weeks away, I thought I’d share with you this fun idea: Easter Basket Favors. I’m making mine for friends and coworkers, but this is a gift anyone will enjoy and a great project to do with kids!
• Small party cups or dixie cups (I found mine at the Dollar Store)
• Your favorite Easter candy (I chose mini robin’s eggs)
• Green tissue paper
• Pipe cleaners
• A custom label
• Permanent Markers
To make these favor baskets I first decorated my yellow party cups with a custom label that reads, “Happy Easter, Love Rachel”. I also drew flowers and hearts around the label with permanent markers for added decoration. Next, I took green tissue paper and cut it into a fringe to make grass. I put it around inside of the cup, so that it the ‘grass’ came popping out (you can use scotch tape to secure it if you want). Next I added a yellow pipe cleaner for the basket handle. With my miniature baskets completed, I filled them up with candy.
If you’re hosting an Easter party or family get-together, place one Easter Basket Favor at each place-setting. Or if you know there will be children, set up a craft table with everything they need to make their own!
- Circle Labels • I chose the “Tiny Hearts” style in Lilac.
