The kids will want to sit at the dinner table with this Tiered Tray Easter Basket as the Spring centerpiece. Of course, it may be hard for the kids not to sneak a piece of candy in before dinner is served too.
I’ve been wanting to make a DIY tiered tray project like this for a while now. What’s even better is I already had most of the supplies on hand. My kids always look forward my seasonal decor around the house. Especially when it’s a trays full of their favorite candy’s too.
The Tiered Tray Easter Basket is made from three, unfinished wood crates and wood dowels.
After the trays were painted a pink base coat, I used white paint and a dry-brush technique to give them a distressed , chippy look. When the paint was dry, I used Gorilla Glue to adhere the wood dowels in between the trays.
Since this is a Easter Basket, I used my Silhouette CAMEO to cut out the words Happy Spring out of vinyl and adhered the vinyl on to the bottom tray.
Now for the fun part. Filling up the Tiered Tray Easter Basket with Nestlé candy . The tray is filled with SweeTARTS Chicks, Ducks, and Bunnies, Springtime Fun Dip, Nerds Rope, a Nestlé candy Scrambled Egg as well as Nestle Egg Filler to fill up the plastic Easter Eggs .
All these candy’s happen to by my family’s favorites too. They’re also are the perfect size for filling Easter eggs up with and decorating candy dishes just like this Tiered Tray Easter Basket.
The SweeTARTS Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies are classic SweeTARTS that come in fun Easter shapes too. So cute, huh? The Easter shapes would look super cute as decorations on Spring cakes, and cookies too.
I think my Tiered Tray Easter Basket looks so pretty filled up with candy that I don’t even want anyone to take any..
Not only does my Tiered Tray look adorably cute as the dinner table centerpiece, it looks even better when I am serving one of my kids favorite meals. Remember how I mentioned it may be hard for the kids not to sneak a piece of candy in before dinner?
If Stouffer’s Party Size Mac & Cheese is on the table, my kids will wait for candy anytime. A Mac & Cheese meal really does make my life easier when dinner needs to be served on a busy night. Stouffer’s Mac & Cheese is freshly-made pasta in a 100% real cheddar cheese sauce too. As a busy mom, I believe it’s important to stay balanced with food and fun by providing simple meals for the family so I’m able spend more time with them at the table and not extra time in the kitchen.
I found the Nestle Easter Candy and Stouffer’s Party Size Mac & Cheese at Walmart. Right now, there’s also an Ibotta Offer going on for all these Nestlé products shown too. What I like about shopping at Walmart the most is it’s also very convenient to toss a few craft supplies in to the shopping cart too.
I love being that mom who likes to incorporate simple and seasonal projects in to family time. That simple gesture always puts a smile on my kids faces and of course, Mac & Cheese will definitely always put a big smile on my kids faces also.
