What to put in homemade Easter baskets?

Handmade Easter baskets are extra special because you can include all sorts of fun and creative items. You can fill your Easter basket with homemade treats, handmade cards, small notebooks or toys, personal mementos, or anything else that is meaningful to the recipient. If you choose to put items that are heavier than candy and Easter eggs, make sure that your Easter basket craft is strong enough to support the weight. So choose sturdy paper and make sure to follow the template instructions carefully!

The baskets in this tutorial are quite small, they can be used for decorative purposes or you can fill them with small items. You can also use them as centerpieces, filled with moss and small Spring flowers.

I included an SVG file so you can modify the baskets as needed if you don’t like them this small.
