1. Eco-Friendly Egg Carton Baskets

Why not upcycle your egg cartons to create charming Easter baskets? Here's how to transform this common household item into a festive gift:

Materials Needed:

  • Egg cartons
  • Paint or markers
  • Decorative ribbons
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tissue paper


  • Begin by cutting the egg carton into the desired basket size, ensuring a neat edge.
  • Next, paint the outside of the carton in Easter pastels or draw on playful designs.
  • Once the paint dries, carefully poke two small holes near the top edge on opposite sides of the carton.
  • Thread a ribbon through the holes to create a handle, securing it with knots.
  • Line the inside with tissue paper and fill with your Easter delights.

Your unique egg carton baskets will be the talk of the Easter table, and the homemade touch makes them an eco-friendly choice.

2. Painted Flower Pots

Turn ordinary flower pots into extraordinary Easter packaging with a splash of paint and some creative flair.

Materials Needed:

  • Flower pots
  • Paints and brushes
  • Clear varnish (optional)
  • Easter-colored tissue paper
  • Shredded paper or basket filler
  • Decorative grass or small flowers (optional)


  • Start by washing the flower pots with warm water and soap. Dry thoroughly and paint outside of pots with Easter-inspired designs or simply covering them in a solid pastel hue.
  • Once dry, you can apply a coat of clear varnish for a glossy finish (and to protect the paint from moisture if you're filling them with homemade candies or other treats).
  • Line the pots with Easter-colored tissue paper and parchment paper.
  • Place your baked goods on top and add a sprig of decorative grass or small flowers if desired.

These painted pots exude a rustic Easter elegance and are perfect for an earthy, garden-themed celebration.

3. Mason Jar Delights for a Modern Twist

Mason jars aren't just for canning; they are excellent for packaging Easter goodies with a modern and practical touch. They're reusable and come in a range of sizes, which makes them versatile for your various treats like layered cakes, cookie mixes, or fudge.

Materials needed:

  • Mason jars in different sizes
  • Scrap fabric or decorative paper
  • Twine or ribbon
  • Labels or gift tags
  1. Fill the mason jars with your delicious baked goods, whether it's layering dry ingredients for a cake, stacking cookies neatly, or filling with liquid or solid goodies like jams or chutneys.
  2. Cut circular shapes from the fabric or paper slightly larger than the jar opening. Secure with twine or ribbon over the jar seal.
  3. Add a personalized touch with labels or gift tags tied to the jar's neck.
  • Seal the jars tightly to maintain the freshness and integrity of your baked goods.
  • Layered cakes in a jar make a stunning visual impact, but consider the weight if you're shipping or carrying them for any distance.

With these ideas, you can turn your Easter treats into delightfully packaged presents that are as fun to make as they are to receive. It's all about the details, and the effort you put into the presentation will be appreciated as much as the treats themselves. Get crafting and baking, and have a joyous Easter celebration filled with love, creativity, and lots of delicious delights!
