Rather than collecting a new basket every year on Easter, our girls put out the same basket the night before for the Easter bunny to fill and hide. We have just been using those $.97 buckets from Walmart, and we thought it would be fun to customize them. I rummaged up felt in Springy colors, fabric and ribbons, some puff paint, and of course the trusted glue gun. I also found these fun dragonfly/butterfly felt stickers.
Each girl picked their colors and I hot glued the felt right to the plastic bucket. I cut out some eggs in white felt and the girls decorated them with the paint. We wrapped the handles in fabric or ribbon too. Now they are personalized and textured and colorful!
