DIY Easter Flower Baskets

Easter and spring flowers just go together so well. At my home, we often have crocuses and snowbells blooming right around Easter time. If you’re further south than I am, you may also have tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth in bloom. 

Of course, I don’t want to bring my spring bulbs inside to put in a basket. They wouldn’t last long, and I wouldn’t be able to enjoy them blooming in my front yard. 

Instead, this Easter flower baskets craft uses artificial flowers. And, that means that you can change up the flowers you use to include your favorite types of Easter flowers.

Some of the baskets you can order online cost closet to $50 which is a bit more than I’d like to invest in an Easter centerpiece. 

What are traditional Easter flowers?

Almost any flower that is pastel in color can be used in this basket. Traditionally, flowers would include daffodils, tulips, hyacinth, crocus, and white lilies. The white lilies represent purity and a new beginning.

What is the best type of basket for Easter flowers?

To keep this affordable, it’s best to find a basket that you already have. You can use last year’s Easter basket from the kid’s candy.

Or, check at a thrift store to find a basket. They usually have a whole shelf for. Any basket that can hold the flowers will work.

Where can I display this basket?

You can use this Easter decor anywhere you need a bit of color. If you have an enclosed porch, you can set it near the front door. Or, you might want to place it on the table as a centerpiece.

The larger the basket, the more suitable it would be on the floor. A smaller basket can easily be used on the counter or table.

DIY Easter flower baskets directions

  • Fill your basket with Easter grass. I prefer using crinkled paper because it’s better for the environment and can be composted after Easter.
  • Remove the flowers from the stems.
  • Place the greenery around the outside of the basket.
  • Working from the outside, add the Easter flowers until the basket is full. Arrange the flowers by color or design until you like them.
  • You can add some Easter eggs or a plush rabbit near the display if you want to. Otherwise, just display it as is.

When the season is over, you can replace the flowers with different colors to change the theme. That way, you can use this display all year.
