Easter is only a couple weeks away and I can’t wait because then were officially into Spring! With that said I’m already getting the decor started around my house. Since I love to build wood crates or boxes I thought it would be perfect to build a new wooden Easter basket.
Of course you’ll need to fill the basket with some amazing treats, so off to Target I went and picked up some of my favorites. I always find myself in their seasonal aisles since they change all the time.
I picked up Starburst Sweet & Sour Jellybeans, Easter DOVE Peanut Butter Eggs, Easter M&M’s in Milk Chocolate, and Starburst Jellybeans. I also found a new flavor of M&M’s that I couldn’t pass up; Easter M&M’s White Strawberry Shortcake. These are only offered exclusively at Target for a limited time so go grab a bag, they’re delicious!
Now that I have all the treats to fill that basket I guess we should build it! Here’s what you’ll need.
Wooden Easter Basket Supplies:
- (2) 2.5” x 36” wood pieces, 3/8” thick
- (1) 3.5” x 36” wood piece, 3/8” thick
- (1) 1” x 12” wood dowel
- Nail gun
- Stain or Paint
Now you’ll need to add the wooden dowel. I went with a 1″ thick piece because I had an extra scrap laying around. I waited till this point to cut it just in-case my box measurements were off. So, measure between the 2 sides and cut the dowel.
To attach it I nailed it in place about 4 times to really secure it.
I love how it turned out! Now, just add all the amazing treats and your DIY Wooden Easter Basket is ready to go!
I love my new Easter basket and all the treats inside it! Target Super Stores will be hosting a sampling event March 20th so go check it out.
