DIY Easter Candy Explosion Basket


I wanted something to give out to the teachers for Easter, and who does not love candy on a stick? So I made a explosion candy basket. I can take it up to the school and either drop it off at the front office for the teachers lounge or let the kids pull the sticks to pass out to the teachers and let everyone have a little something to brighten their day.

Start with a fin basket, I chose a burlap and canvas one, but any will work. Add in some Styrofoam rings inside the basket to allow you to place the items in it.

Create some candy on a stick (bamboo skewers) use some homemade sticky labels (printable on my blog) to hold the stick to the candy. Add some ribbon in it for fun!!

Start sticking the candy on a stick into the Styrofoam in the basket. Alternate which side you place the candy to balance it out.

Add in in the little candy and some fake grass around the bottom to cover up the Styrofoam.

Create a little fun banner along the bottom of the basket, here I said" Happy Easter" cut from Rinea Paper foil in Blush and placed on banner and a little paper held on with a clip.
