Make Your Own Candy

First things first, cut back on the amount of candy that you put in the baskets. Filling the baskets with more gifts and less candy means that fewer items are needed to fill the basket. To further save, make your own candy at home. We bought this cross mold 2 years ago to make our own chocolates for the baskets and it has been worth every penny. Hard candies are another easy candy to make. You can go even further and try your hand at making your own peeps.

Skip the Grass

I don’t know about you but I hate that plastic Easter grass. It always ends up all over the house for weeks after the holiday has ended. A few years ago I started filling the baskets with tissue paper and it’s fantastic. We always have some on hand and it is easily folded for storage. It is an easy and economical alternative.

Reuse Your Baskets

Don’t buy new Easter baskets every year. If you decide you want to freshen up your baskets, give them a makeover. I am a fan of traditional baskets and ours are getting an awesome Pokémon makeover this year. However, those plastic Easter buckets can be easily updated as well.

 

Hollar is Your Secret Weapon

When you have a budget of $10 per basket it is important to bargain shop. That is where Hollar comes in. Instead of running all over town in search of the best deals, I can jump on Hollar and get everything. The best part is that shipping is free with purchases over $25 which means your entire budget can go to basket-fillers. This year, I was able to get brand name items to fill our baskets at a fraction of the cost. Here are just a few of the items I scored this year:

Those deals don’t even scratch the surface of what you can find on Hollar. Your family can have an awesome Easter on a small budget. We were able to fill 5 Easter baskets for under 50 dollars and you can too! Did I mention that if you sign up for a new account you’ll get a $2 credit towards your purchase? That’s free money to fill your baskets! If you want even more ways to save on Easter find out how you can make the day easier with this DIY Golden Bunny Bank.

This easy DIY golden bunny bank is a gorgeous addition to your Easter décor. It will also help feed your bank obsession!

Make this fun and colorful girl's purse for them to carry all of their important trinkets in and watch her face light up!

Fun and Colorful Girl’s Purse

Have you ever found a fabric that was so fun and bright that you just had to buy it? Instead of having a project that you purchase fabric for, you get the fabric and figure out the project later. If you’re anything like me, it probably happens more often than you care to admit. That was exactly the case with this awesome fabric used to make this project. I have had the fabric for a couple of years now and just hadn’t found the right project for it. Suddenly, when deciding what to make for the kids’ Easter baskets it hit me! My daughter loves purses so why not make her a fun and colorful girl’s purse for Easter?

Easter Round-Up of Fun, Food, and Crafts

Can you believe that Easter is just over a week away? If you aren’t ready yet, I’ve gathered some of the best ideas around the web for a perfect Easter that you can put together quickly. In fact, I’ll be preparing right along with you. Why? I have to start our Easter gifts all over again. I had previously purchased everything for our baskets weeks in advance, congratulating myself on being prepared so early. Yeah, tip for you: If you prepare in advance for holidays, you had better have a good (or fantastic) hiding place for the gifts! I, unfortunately had a major lapse in judgement and put the bag of goodies in my office. Not only did the kids find it but, staying true-to-form, they proceeded to pull out and examine every. Single. Thing. So I will be starting all over again. This Easter round-up will be my first stop in the new preparations!

That is why I love doing these budget craft blog hops. They challenge me to create beautiful projects for you that stretch and strengthen my craft skills while appealing to my frugal nature.

DIY Moss Bunny Wall Art

Am I the only one who thinks that bunnies are super adorable? Around Easter cute little Peeps, fun window clings, and wall decorations all sport the springy little animals which seriously delights me. While shopping at Hobby Lobby (love that store) for supplies for this DIY spring wreath, I saw this gorgeous silhouetted moss bunny hanging. Like most craft-o-holics, I saw it and immediately thought, “I need one of these but I can totally make one like it at home.” So that’s what I did and the end result is this easy and beautiful DIY moss bunny wall hanging! The best part is that you can make your own for a fraction of what it would cost you in the store.

Step 1

Cut your foam board in half, bisecting the longest edge.

Step 2

Free-hand draw a silhouette of a bunny.

Tip:

  • I chose to draw a side profile of a bunny but you can draw whatever is easiest for you. If you aren’t confident in your drawing skills, a quick Google search will give you an outline you can print and tape to your foam board. Simply cut out the outline of the taped image in step 3 just as you would the drawing.

Step 3

Cut out your bunny using a box cutter (or XActo knife).

Step 4

After you cut it out, the edges will be rough. Sand the rough edges with your sand paper.

Step 5

Generously coat your bunny with Mod Podge.

Step 8

Add a second generous coat of Mod Podge.

 

Step 9

Again, cover with moss and shake off excess. Allow to dry completely.

Tip:

  • Your bunny may require a third coat of Mod Podge and moss. This is completely up to your discretion. The bunny pictured only has 2 coats.

Step 10

In a well-ventilated space, spray your bunny with your sealant and allow to dry.

Step 11

Paint the edges and back of your bunny with black acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.

Tip:

  • If you would like, you can add a second coat of paint. I chose to not to because the painted side will be against the wall.

Step 12

While waiting for your paint to dry, create your bow. Cut 5 feet of ribbon from the spool.

Once everything is dried, you can hang it up on your wall and enjoy. If you choose to hang it outdoors, I recommend spraying the entire bunny (front and back) with your sealant spray to help protect it from the elements. I love ours so much that I believe it will find a place in our home year round. It is beautiful Easter décor but can function as regular décor as well. Holiday décor is even better when it fits with your existing decorating scheme!

We all have weaknesses when it's time to declutter. My weakness is for re-purposing and recently led to these beautiful recycled Easter napkin rings.

Beautiful Recycled Easter Napkin Rings

Do you have a weakness when it comes to getting rid of your stuff? Do you worry that you may need that basket later or that this summer will be the one that you finally fit back into that dress? We all have our struggles when it comes to decluttering. For me, it is seeing the potential of what items could become instead of what they are. That’s what prompted me to use a plastic plate to make this wreath, turn a picture frame into a key organizer, and the tons of other projects you can find on this site. Most recently, that weakness for re-purposing let to these beautiful recycled Easter napkin rings.

Materials

Step 1

Cut a length of craft ribbon about 16-24 inches depending on the width of your ribbon. (The thinner your ribbon, the longer the length needs to be.)

 

We all have weaknesses when it's time to declutter. My weakness is for re-purposing and recently led to these beautiful recycled Easter napkin rings.

Step 2

Place some hot glue on the inside of your shower ring at the place where it snaps closed.

Step 3

Secure the end of your length of ribbon to the glue and begin wrapping the ribbon around the shower curtain ring.

 

We all have weaknesses when it's time to declutter. My weakness is for re-purposing and recently led to these beautiful recycled Easter napkin rings.

Step 4

Continue wrapping until the entire ring is covered then secure the end using hot glue. Trim off any excess ribbon.

Step 5

Repeat steps 1-4 until the desired number of shower rings are covered.

Tips:

  • My spool of craft ribbon was enough to cover four shower rings. If you plan on doing an entire set of rings, you will need more than one spool of ribbon.
  • To prevent ribbon waste, feel free to use the excess you trimmed off on another ring. When you get to the end of the length, simply glue the loose end down and begin adding more ribbon the same way you do in step 2.

Step 6

Cut a piece of burlap roughly 5” long from your roll.

Now all that’s left is to place your napkins through your beautiful new recycled Easter napkin rings and set the table! While I still may not have mastered the art of getting rid of things, I’m trying to follow a new rule to help me: either repurpose it now or get rid of it! If you struggle with this too, try out this rule for a while. Hopefully it will help you clear some of your clutter some old shower curtain rings, you’ll know what to make with them!
