DIY: Easter Baskets & Decorations
Easter is right around the corner, which means you’ll probably be heading to the store to pick up a basket to fill with eggs, chocolates and treats. Why purchase an Easter basket when you can make a unique, handmade basket from simple household items like coffee filters and coffee cans? Decorate the Easter dinner table with a festive centerpiece that incorporates coffee filters. Below are some fun Easter crafts that I came across in my internet searches and want to share them with you!
Have a few extra coffee filters? Dye them pastel colors and craft Coffee Filter Flower Baskets. These colorful baskets are the perfect size for an egg and few pieces of chocolate.
