Thank you so much for joining me in this blog hop today! I’ve teamed up with 11 other extremely talented bloggers to share our Easter crafts on a budget. Each of us was given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged to create an Easter inspired craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of our local stores. If you have any budget friendly Easter crafts to share, please add it to the link-up at the bottom of this post so it can be seen on all of our blogs!

DIY Easter Basket
It’s no secret that I am a
little bit 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.
Then there were these cute felt bunnies in packs of 6. Again, no idea what to use them for, but for $1 how could I pass them up?
Once I was home, I started brainstorming for some ideas and that’s when this DIY Easter basket hit me! This is not your traditional multi colored wicker Easter basket, but rather something that the recipient can use for years to come after all the candy and goodies are gone.
Here’s what I used to make this DIY Easter Basket:
Galvanized bucket $3
Felt bunnies $1
Natural Raffia $1
Hot Glue gun
All I did was simply tie raffia around the top of the galvanized bucket, using some hot glue to keep it from slipping.
Then using one of the white felt bunnies from my pack of 6, I glued one on top of where the raffia was tied.
Load it up with Easter grass or another filler, and stick in your candies and goodies!
Then, once Easter is over, you can use this DIY Easter basket as part of your Spring decor. See? Multipurpose!
