Every year I do this. Wait until the last minute to get the grandbabies’ Easter Baskets made and filled. I swore this year would be different. Of course it isn’t ; ). However, it’s an improvement from last year when we were “googling” candy stores the day before Easter! It’s only Thursday and my last minute Easter baskets are decorated and almost filled.
I picked up the “baskets” in the dollar section at Target. I thought the burlap bag would be perfect for my 6-year old grandson. Not frilly, pastel, or girly and can hold stuff. Perfect!
Kids just love seeing their names on their things. I made a stencil with my Cameo and a stencil blank to spell out his name.
Using a stencil brush, I pounced on his favorite color and then simply outlined the letters with a Sharpie. Quick and easy!
It was a little too plain for my taste so large ric rac was hot-glued onto the top and bottom to give it a finished look.
My granddaughter’s “basket” also came from the dollar section at Target.
I personalized her basket with her monogram that I made, again using my Silhouette Cameo. I cut the monogram out of pink heat transfer vinyl. I was afraid that the pink monogram would look lost against the multi-colored chevron fabric so I created an offset in Silhouette Studio and cut the background monogram out of a darker vinyl. I used my heat press to attach the vinyl.
Pretty cute for $3!
Overall, I like how the baskets turned out. They were super easy and quick to make.
Are your baskets ready or are you a procrastinator like me? ; )
