DIY Floral Easter Basket

Beautiful DIY project for Easter basket with fresh flowers from your garden.

Try to make a bit more exciting Easter basket. Add some fresh flowers to the mix to live up the whole Easter basket situation a little bit.

What you need

  • fresh flowers + garland (see specific flower types below)
  • old Easter basket
  • hot glue and glue sticks
  • scissors

For this project, I used Mayra Pink Garden Roses, Lavender Double Bloom Tulips, Lamb’s Ear, Pink Veronicas, Pink Ranunculus, and White and Lavender Sweet Peas.


Step 1

You want the flowers to be super hydrated before starting this project, so that the blooms will last longer once attached to the basket. So, for the best hydration… Cut at least 1″³ off each stem and place in 3-4″³ of room temperature water. Let everything hydrate for at least 3-4 hours before you start working with them, but preferably 24 hours so the blooms have more time to open, if they’re not already.

Cut the stems off of Lamb’s Ear leaves and hot glue them to the base of your basket, all the way around. This will be the base for your flowers.

Step 2

Next, cut the stems off of the flowers that you plan to use.

Step 3

Then glue the base of each flower to the side of the basket. Do this all the way around the basket. Then, fill in additional holes on top (for aerial view of basket).

Add some Easter eggs and you’re good to go. Simple as that.
