Make your own Easter basket this, simple 2-step tutorial using dollar store supplies

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Dollar Tree and Target’s Dollar Spot. Seriously, I think I visit one or both weekly. Have you see the cute Spring decor out at Target yet?

These galvanized buckets caught my eye a few weeks ago. And even though I didn’t have a clue as to what I was going to do with them, a couple came home with me anyway, as well as some cute felt bunnies.

The first step is to tie the raffia ribbon around the top of the bucket. I tied several pieces to give it a full look. Use dabs of hot glue to keep the raffia in place.

Next, use the hot glue to place a felt bunny silhouette in the center where the raffia was tied.

Last, load it up with Easter grass or another filler and stick in your favorite candies and goodies.

I told you this was simple! This sweet Dollar store DIY Easter basket can be multipurpose too. Use it in your Spring decor once Easter is over. You could also place some cute planter pots with plants inside!

I love the bucket, too! It's the perfect thing for an Easter basket.

Such a neat looking basket. I probably would not have thought about adding a little felt bunny to it - it is so creative. I have a couple of those little buckets and I am just using them as is. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!!!

I love the idea of the galvanized bucket in place of the traditional woven one. I know I would definitely use it for so many other things.

There are so many possibilities. I think I need a few more...

I saw those galvanized buckets too! Love it. Your Easter basket would be perfect on our dining table so we could have dessert ready all the time!

Good idea for the dining table. Maybe I'll put it front and center for Easter dinner.

I love that bucket! Not gonna lie, it could be my Easter basket without any additional decor but you've definitely made it a beautiful and multi-functional piece!

Thank you Marie! It sure was pretty as is, but I had to make it just a tad more festive lol. I can't leave anything as is.
