Easter In A Bucket
This is a great idea for kids or to share with friends, teachers, or neighbors. I picked up the plain tin bucket from the dollar bins at Target, and then embellished it and filled it with Easter goodies.
I started off by cutting some green adhesive backed vinyl with the Grass Edges Die to create the grass around the bottom of the bucket. Designer tip: to fit the grass edge around the bucket I cut a few evenly spaced slits at the bottom and overlapped them as I placed the grass around the bucket. I also die cut some clouds from white vinyl, and placed those around the top of the bucket.
Then I made a pinwheel and added a chipboard alpha as a monogram to personalize the bucket. Then I cut several butterflies, added Yellow Glitter Brads to the centers, and glued them to the bucket. Designer tip: a hot glue gun works best when adhering paper items to round surfaces.
DIY Easter Game
Why not use your craft supplies to make a fun Easter game for the kids? I used a We R Memory Keepers 4x4 photo sleeve and some Simply Spring patterned papers, tags, and stickers to create this Easter Tic-Tac-Toe game.
After cutting the X's and O's out with my Cricut, I ran them all through my Xyron using repositionable adhesive. You could also use a dry erase marker since it wipes clean from the photo sleeve with a paper towel.
I hope you enjoyed these ideas. Come back Friday for some more Easter inspiration!
