Homemade Easter Basket

I was looking at a Pottery Barn Kids magazine and wishing so badly! that I could afford to buy my kids one of their EASTER BASKETS. So around the same time my fabulous mom told me that I should print off a Beatrix Potter print and make a cute basket of my own. I have a AWESOME MOM  full of GRAND ideas. This one is defiantly way less damaging to my WALLET and just as cute!!

Sand Bucket. (I bought mine for a $1 at Michaels Craft Store.)
Rick rack
Modge Podge
Pendant sticker letters (Michaels Craft Store)

How To:
Print out a Beatrix Potter 5x7 print
Modge podge it onto your bucket
Modge podge on your rick rack
Put your banner on your bucket. I used a glue gun to glue on the letters to the rick rack. I tied the ribbon from one end to the other end.

I am exicted to fill this cute buckets up with EASTER goodies. When I get those put together I will show all of you!!  Now go grab some Easter PEEPS and make your kids a cuter and affordable EASTER Basket.

This is a great project! I just bought a cheap bucket and taped off an area to paint it with chalkboard paint and then I'll put my son's name on it with chalk. I love finding ways to make things look like a million bucks--this bucket for sure looks amazing.

My youngest has Peter Rabbit theme for her room and can't believe I never thought to do this!. I think this will have to be put on the project list for upcoming Easter. The kids will love it!
I can cut up all my old calendars and reuse the photos.
