Creations, 1-2-3 Easter Baskets!

My little egg hunters are going to need baskets for their loot!

I made some Burlap Bunny Bags for them several weeks ago

and decided they would look cute tucked into matching baskets

These baskets can be made in 1-2-3 easy steps~

1.  Spray paint baskets….I did 1 small, 1 medium and 1 large, for 1 year old, 2 year old and 6 year old

2. Drill two holes into wood letters and paint them in bright colors

    Those are adorable! We have 15 little ones at our Easter celebration, so we don’t get fancy with the containers. :). I fill 150 eggs for the hunt. Takes me hours to fill, and minutes for them to find them all!

  5. So adorable. I love to see children scamper around the yard filling their baskets with eggs. I don’t know who enjoys it the most the children or me.

    I love the painted letters you added to the baskets. You have some very lucky grandchildren! The burlap bunny bags are perfect, too. The tea towel inside each basket is a wonderful touch – no mess inside with grass spilling out onto your floors. 🙂 Have fun!
