Ideas for a Friendship Easter Basket

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.

Here are some Ideas for a Friendship Easter Basket that will make your friends day!

DIY Ideas for Friendship Easter Basket

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.

I had covered some plastic eggs with newspaper and twine a few years ago at Easter. I decided that this would be an easy way to fill the basket. I saved this tutorial on my Instagram Stories

Cute Carrots for a Easter Basket

Another Instagram friend had shared how to make these cute carrots. I shared another tutorial on how to make these as well.
Gather Items
Next I started looking around the house for things I could use in the basket. Things that I didn’t necessarily need anymore and that someone else could enjoy.

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 also have excess greenery and small soaps that I keep on hand for hostess gifts, etc. I didn’t have any candy but I found some Hot Cocoa and decided I could spare some.
I love how my first basket came together.
Even the hot cocoa looks cute in the basket!

DIY Cork Flowers

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.

I save all my natural wine corks to use in my potted plants. Since I have a few collected, I decided to try my hand at making wine cork flowers to include in an Easter Basket.
I again saved the tutorial here.
I had purchased a couple of these small wreaths or candle rings from Target earlier this year. I don’t need them all so I decided I would share one. The basket is a thrift store find and I have some wine on hand.
I added another of my extra moss bunnies and Ta Da!
I had so much fun creating these two baskets with two different themes.

After I finished making these baskets, I began to think of other ideas. The grapevine topiary, 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.

These are so thoughtful, I have never thought of sharing an Easter basket with a girlfriend. Baskets have been for family, this is a very generous gift idea. Beautiful and creative. Pinned.
