These Joyful Easter Baskets Can Be Put Together With Items in Your House (1)

In between planning your Easter brunch and gathering supplies to paint pretty eggs with your tykes, there's one more very important element that deserves ample attention: your Easter baskets. Though the traditional store-bought options (wicker baskets or fabric containers) are simple and work just fine, why not treat the babies, toddlers, tweens, teenagers, and—hey—even the adults in your life to something a little more special this year?

Many of these unique homemade Easter baskets are easy to assemble from items you already have in your home—think felt, glitter, cardstock, or even a mason jar. For tweens, craft something like a felt rainbow bag that doubles as a purse and can be stuffed with the most popular fillers—chocolate, candy, Easter books, and other small toys. For adults, consider something less DIY and more giftable, like a ceramic berry basket they can display once Easter is over. And, of course, you can swap the jelly beans for mini wine bottles. Just don't forget the Peeps. Those are beloved by everyone.

No matter which route you go—fun, functional, or sophisticated—one thing is for sure, if you try one of these ideas, your finished masterpiece will truly stand out, even if it's made with traditional colors.
