This adorable DIY Easter basket is edible, even the “basket” itself!
I love easy DIY projects like this!
It doesn’t matter how old my kids get, I still enjoy creating simple little Easter baskets for them! This year, If you’re looking for a unique DIY Easter basket, check out these adorable and totally edible DIY Easter baskets.
Good news! This is a frugal craft project using Dollar Tree treats and supplies!
The best part, these cute and crafty Easter baskets can be made with your favorite candy and don’t cost very much to make. Dollar Tree is a great resource for inexpensive Easter supplies, although your grocery store or favorite big-box retailer will also have the seasonal items needed for this project too.
Tips for making DIY edible Easter baskets:
- The theater-size boxes of candy are perfect for this project and so are packages of Easter Peeps marshmallows. If you’d prefer crackers or other savory snack foods, try looking for similar-shaped boxes.
- If you wanted to use clear packing tape to secure everything, I’m sure that would work as well as hot glue.

Edible Easter baskets are such an easy and adorable craft!
I could see my daughter making some for her friends too! This idea could be a cute small yet thoughtful gift for nieces, nephews, grandkids, etc. The Cracker Jack basket could be fun for a baseball fan and you could add some sunflower seeds, gum, and maybe a baseball.
I think this could go beyond Easter too! Maybe this could be a creative small gift basket idea for other occasions and holidays. How cute would the candy basket be to present a movie gift card? Or possibly a teacher or coach end-of-the-year gift?
Here are two more fun examples I made years ago! I clipped on some little hairbows to the handle as an embellishment on these. What a fun little craft that’s easy to pull off!
