I saw a fun alternative for an Easter basket on Pinterest and knew I wanted to try to make one. I had everything I needed to get started. I got out a mason jar, pipe cleaners and some ribbon and got to work. I was happily surprised that it only took me a few minutes to make one. A complete set of step by step directions can be found here. I decided to use a white chocolate bunny (which was a little tricky to fit inside the mouth of the jar) some edible easter grass, and pink, green and orange jelly beans. I am so happy with the results, that I had all the supplies at home, and that it only took me a few minutes to put together!!! This is a great gift for a teacher, hostess or neighbor. It would also be perfect filled with some flowers for May Day or Mother's Day. I will definitely be making these again. What are you making this year for Easter? Any fun ideas or alternatives to an Easter basket?
