21 DIY Easter Baskets & Tasty Fillers: Save money on Easter with these clever basket ideas & tasty treats to put in them!

Peter Cottontail is hopping down the bunny trail in just over two weeks and I haven’t grabbed a single thing for my son’s Easter basket. Heck, I haven’t even bought the basket! I’m a total Easter slacker, to be honest. I do this every year, wait until the last minute then run around like crazy trying to find everything I need. The older he gets, the harder it becomes.

Since, like most of the world, I’m kind of broke this year (more so than usual), I’m trying to DIY my way through the holiday as much as possible. Sure, I’ll still get my son some fun Easter gifts to put in his basket, but I’m not going crazy with it. Oh, he’ll still get candy and money. We’ll also still do our annual Easter egg hunt in our home (we’ve done it since he was a toddler, and even at almost 16 he still asks for it. But beyond that, I’m keeping it simple.
