DIY Easter-Themed Candy Box

Happy Easter, Everybunny!

I’ll admit it, I’m on a milk-carton crafting kick. My latest mission was to create a cute Easter-themed candy box made from a repurposed Hiland Dairy carton. I can’t wait to see my kids’ faces light up on Easter morning! Here’s how I did it.

What You’ll Need:

Easter Candy Box Supplies

  • Hiland Dairy carton
  • Craft knife
  • Spray paint
  • Card stock, various colors
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Clear plastic sheet
  • Plastic grass
  • Chocolate bunny
  • Faux flowers (optional)
  • Jeweled flowers and butterflies (optional)


  • Rinse carton with warm, soapy water. Allow to dry completely.
  • Using the craft knife, cut off the pour spout.
  • Spray-paint the carton. Allow to dry completely.

Easter Candy Box Step 1

  • Using the craft knife or scissors, cut out a round opening on one side of the carton.
    • Tip: I cut my round opening on the same side that had the pour spout to make it a little easier to cut.

Easter Candy Box Step 2

  • Using scissors, trim the plastic sheet, making sure it is big enough to completely cover the round opening.
  • Open the top of the carton.

Easter Candy Box Step 3

  • Glue the plastic sheet to the inside, covering the round opening to create a window. Allow to dry completely.

Easter Candy Box Step 4

  • Create grass, flowers and a fence from the card stock to decorate the outside of the carton. Adhere the outside decorations with glue.
    • Tip: You can add moss for more character. I even added some faux flowers, jeweled flowers and butterflies, but you can also make everything from the card stock.

Easter Candy Box Step 5

  • Put the plastic grass inside the carton and put the chocolate bunny on top of the grass, facing the plastic window.
  • Glue the top of the carton shut. Allow to dry completely.
  • Create a roof from the card stock and glue it to the top of the carton.

Diva’s Tip

If you’re trying to avoid giving candy to your kiddos this Easter, you can make a bunny box from the carton with big ears, feet and a cotton-ball tail instead. Don’t forget the whiskers!
