I’m sure you’ve thought of a plethora of clever items and creative eggs to fill your kids’ Easter baskets with, but have you thought of the actual basket? Sure, an ordinary pastel wicker basket filled with shredded basket filler is cute, but here at HGTV, we don’t take the boring route. We have ideas ranging from edible baskets (yes, you read that correctly!) to free printable baskets.

Edible Rice Cereal Bowl

Edible Rice Cereal Easter Basket

To make this edible basket, bake rice cereal treats according to the package, adding colorful sprinkles if desired. Press the warm treats against the inside of large bowls covered in wax paper. Let cool, and remove once hardened. Fill the bowls with edible grass and marshmallow bunnies and chicks.

Gardener’s Easter Basket

Chalkboard Terra Cotta Pot Basket

Not a fan of sweets? Make this gardener’s delight basket by applying chalkboard paint to a terra cotta pot. Once dry, rub with chalk, lightly coating entire pot to cure the paint. Wipe off excess and write or draw Easter messages with chalk or a chalkboard pen. Fill with gardening goodies, such as seeds and gardening tools.

Rustic Easter Basket

Jute-Wrapped Easter Basket

Bring a natural, earthy feel to your Easter celebration with a jute-wrapped basket. Wrap jute or twine, starting from the bottom of a galvanized bucket, and go up along the side and around to the bottom again to create a handle. Continue wrapping the sides of the bucket, occasionally hot gluing to the sides. Continue until entire bucket is wrapped in jute and handles are secure. Fill the bucket with green grass filler and egg-shaped candy.

    I love the way those dyed Easter eggs look in the above photo! They are much better than the usual pastel colors.
