Easter In A Bucket

Today I’ve got another Easter project idea to share with you that the kids will love. I like to call it “Easter In A Bucket”! I picked up a plain tin mini bucket from the dollar bins at Target, embellished it, and filled it with some 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. I added a thin sheet of chipboard to my sandwich before running it through the Evolution to make sure and get just the right amount of pressure for a clean cut.

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 by cutting some Farmer’s Market paper with the Pinwheel Flower Template Die, and adding a Hip Hip Hooray chipboard alpha as a monogram to personalize the bucket. Then I cut several butterflies using the Butterflies Nesting Dies, 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.

Come back tomorrow for some Easter home decor inspiration!
