DIY Coffee Filter Easter Treat Basket

This is the first time I have made a craft with coffee filters, and I am really happy with how  they turned out. These DIY Coffee Filter Easter Treat Baskets were really easy to make, and if you are a crafter, you probably already have everything you need to make them. Besides, being super cute, :o) this craft is very inexpensive to make. I think that the kids will enjoy decorating them too.

DIY Coffee Filter Easter Treat Baskets 

Here is what you will need to make the baskets: Coffee Filters, Ink PadRibbon and Embellishments.

Plus whatever goodies, or small toy, that you want to fill your baskets with.

Take two coffee filters and place them one inside the other. 

Next, you want to stamp the top edge of the outer coffee filter. I placed the filter on top of the ink, and used my finger’s to press it into it, and then I slowly moved the filter around, so that the ink was all along the top edge. Let the ink dry before moving on to the next step.

 I found using a small 8 oz canning jar was the easiest way to tie the ribbon around the coffee filter. Just place the filter on top of the jar, and tie with your desired ribbon. Flip the coffee filter over and decorate with embellishments of  your choice.

 Fill baskets with desired goodies. I filled mine with a little grass, 2 peeps, and surprise eggs. 

(Tomorrow’s post will be about the surprise eggs!)

 Have you made any crafts using coffee filters? I’d love to hear about them!

      I wish I had thought about using them for crafts when my kids were at home! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

    This is very cute – I will have the older grandkids color the borders and make the baskets for the little ones — That is a great way to keep them entertained and show them a nice craft.

    That is TOO CUTE! And so clever and inexpensive. Am definitely keeping this in mind, not just for Easter. But the Peeps look so cozy in there! Thanks for sharing!

      Nikki, This is great to do for any occasion. Using the spray adhesive makes it really easy to change the candle up for each holiday.
