Berry Easter Basket


A second chance to give berry basket.

It was time we put those all too many, once too many "tossed", berry baskets to work for us! We thought, why not a little Easter treat basket.

And so was born our second chance to give berry Easter basket.




               Here are the items we used to make basket.

Clean and dry plastic berry basket. Candy. {we found the really yummy chocolates at trader Joe's! There are only 3 healthy ingredients in them too! Unsweetened chocolate. Honey. Peppermint oil.} Christian Easter stickers. Free party printables from Amanda's Parties to Go!




To make a bed of grass, we ran some colored paper through the shredder.



We lined the berry basket first with a piece of green tissue paper and than added the grass.


 Love the two tone look of the grass.



Next we got our stickers and candy ready.



Such a simple way to dress up store bought candy with a more personal touch. Simply peel and stick the stickers to the candy.



To cover the berry labels on the basket we cut to fit a pretty piece of paper and glues the party printable onto the paper.



Here is the outside of the basket with the old label covered.




And here is the inside of the basket with a new label to hide the underside of the old label.



Time to fill the basket.









All ready to give as a little gift! 

“The leech has two daughters.
    ‘Give! Give!’ they cry.
Proverbs 30:15
