This past Saturday we had a family egg hunt at my grandpa’s house. Do you see what my kids used for baskets!?!? That’s right, Walmart sacks.
I don’t know where the baskets are hiding from last year – but even if we found them, they’re lame at best. While at Target I wandered in the dollar spot (the $2.50 area) and saw these metal buckets – loved them, wish there were 4, but I grabbed the last 2 blue ones. Next to them were wicker purse/bag things – I thought that would be cute for the girls. They were all big enough to hold a couple dozen plastic eggs and I saw cute Easter baskets in my mind….
For the girls I ironed heat-n-bond on the back of fabric and then freehand cut out their initial. Then peeled the heat-n-bond off (it leaves a glue behind on your fabric) and ironed it on to the wicker – I wasn’t sure it would iron on, but it worked!
For the flower I wanted more dimension than a rolled flower so I went with the gathered rolled flower (how-to found HERE) and hot-glued it on for that wow factor.
For the boys metal buckets, I had Trevor drill holes for a handle, and then he strung rope through them:
And that’s it! Now they can egg hunt in style!
