Candy Box Easter Baskets

Candy Box Easter Basket

I can’t remember where I first saw this idea so I don’t know who to credit but it is all over Pinterest so you can look there for variations.  I still like to give my big kids something for Easter so when I saw these “baskets”, I knew what they were getting this year.  Everything you see here is from the dollar store or the dollar section in Target.  You need 4 large boxes of candy, make sure they are all of equal length so that your box will fit together nicely or make sure the sides are the same length and the ends are the same length.  I used a hot glue gun and glued them together and then used a piece of cardboard for the bottom of the box, also attached with the hot glue gun.  I attached the Nerds rope handle with washi tape since the handle is more for decoration as opposed to actually lifting.  I used a little wooden tag, more washi tape and some Baker’s twine (all from Pick Your Plum) to label each basket.  So cute and easy!  I was thinking too, you could use this for anything – birthdays, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Halloween, anything really.  Happy Easter everyone!
