Easter baskets for the Easter Bunny

March 22, 2013

Growing up we had special baskets that each of us called our own for the Easter bunny to fill. Mine had a hand painted Bunny on it with a real cotton tail. I just love that basket! My sisters each had tole painted wooden baskets that my mom painted, they were pretty special too.

For the last two years Thomas has used a generic Dollarama basket. This year I thought I should make both the kids their own. They are not as fancy as the ones I had growing up but I think they are still pretty special.

I bought the baskets from Superstore for $3 each. I chose these particular ones because I like that they are rectangular and that the handles hinge for easy storage. Thomas, of course, was the executive color stylist.

These were very easy to make. I basically searched everywhere for letters small enough. I found these on e-bay. They came all the way from China and cost a whole .99 for 104 (4 of each letter). I’m sooo excited to find uses for the other letters.

Next I painted them with acrylic paints and then topped them with sparkly shellac. Then I glue gunned them on, easy peasy and oh-so-cute!!
