Y’all it’s been close to 20 years since I put together an Easter Basket! So when I was invited to join a group to share Easter Basket idea’s, I was not exactly excited about the prospect. But the more I thought about it, the more excited I became. Since any idea of entertaining my girlfriends has been put on hold, I thought what if I planned Easter Baskets for Friends. So here are a Few Ideas that I came up with to build Friendship Easter Baskets! We all probably know someone who could use cheering up these days. I hope these idea’s will inspire you to share what you have available to make someone else feel special during this time of isolation.
I’ve teamed up with some really talented friends to share Easter Basket Ideas. I want to thank Wendy at The Curated Farmhouse and Jessica at Itty Bitty Farmhouse for organizing this group. I will share links at the end of this post for more inspiration.
I love to collect baskets from thrift stores, so I have an abundance of baskets to choose from. If you don’t have baskets on hand, you can use any container that you wish. Things like a mixing bowl, a tin can, a tray, etc. The list is endless. Be creative and think outside the box or basket in this case! LOL. However, what would I put into the baskets????? So I first began with a couple of quick and easy DIY projects that can be completed without going to the store.
Above are the items I decided would go into a basket for someone who likes to read. I have several books that I’ve already read. By the way, have you read KariAnne Woods books? I’ve read “So Close to Amazing” so many times, I can quote it. So I decided I should pass it on to someone else. Also, I still collect quite a few magazines and most I’ve already read. So I could share those as well. Last year I collected several moss bunnies for my Easter Tablescape. This year I didn’t use all of them. I could spare a bunny or 4. LOL
I was so excited about how the first basket came together, I decided to try my hand and another DIY project and another basket theme.
After I finished making these baskets, I began to think of other ideas. The grapevine topiary, which I shared on Instagram earlier, would have been perfect in the baskets. So many possibilities. I didn’t spend one penny to make these baskets. Every item was something I had previously purchased for myself or had on hand from previous projects.
I hope these ideas will give you inspiration to share what you have on hand with someone who could use some cheering up over these next few weeks. You can link to all the tutorials from the links above or just jump over to my Instagram account to see them.
I appreciate you for stopping by and I’d appreciate any comments and/or suggestions to add to these ideas. I will share any great ideas on Instagram stories. Have a blessed Easter Season and please stay safe. Don’t forget to link below for more inspiration.
