DIY mini basket place settings for Easter

It’s so easy squeazy.


I bought these mini baskets here¬†and filled them with a bit of moss and robin’s egg peanut butter M&Ms. You might be tempted to buy a slew of other robin’s egg candies, but I bought them all to see which was prettiest and tastiest and these are them. Trust me. I also ate all the bags to find out, so I’m obviously I’m a person with sound judgment.


  1. Fill your baskets with moss and robin’s egg candies. You can add other goodies as well, depending on how big your baskets are!
  2. Cut out mini banners
  3. Write the names of your friends/family/guests on the mini banners
  4. Use the glue gun to stick the banners to the mini basket handles

I created the banners out of leftover wallpaper (from a project I did for Laura Ashley) and curled them so that they twisted a bit. I wrote each name, glue gunned them to the basket, and BOOM!
