Create a unique, floral DIY Easter basket with a tin pail, faux flowers, ribbon, and adhesive…This whimsical Easter basket can be made for pennies with dollar store finds. Here’s the how-to:
What you need:
- small metal pail or bucket (I used a painted tin Easter bucket from the dollar store.)
- 4 bouquets of faux flowers (also from the dollar store) — You may need more bouquets, depending on the size of your pail.
- adhesive (I used glue dots, but a hot glue gun will also do the trick.)
- wire cutters
What to do:
- Pull the flowers off of their stems — they should come off with ease. Remove the plastic base of each flower and trim the wire so that it is flush with the petals. Adhere a glue dot to the back of each flower (hot glue should also work just fine, but I think that the glue dot may do a better job of holding the petals in place).
- Attach flowers to the pail, evenly spacing them horizontally and vertically.
- Adhere glue dots to the handle of the bucket (hot glue will also work). Wrap ribbon around the handle. That’s it!
