Step 3: Arrange Your Basket

Start by lining the bottom of your basket with Easter grass or shredded paper to create a soft bed for your candies. Place larger items such as chocolate bunnies towards the back or center of the basket to serve as focal points. Then, fill in the gaps with smaller candies and chocolates. Experiment with different arrangements until you’re satisfied with the overall look.
