Easter is one of my favorite holidays. The kids anxiously wake up on Easter morning to see what awaits them in their Easter baskets. I love doing themed baskets and this year Logan will be getting a Marvel Superhero themed basket and Amelia will be getting a Sofia the First themed basket, their favorites! In addition to the traditional summer gear (swimsuits, pool towels, sun hats, etc.) that always gets put in their baskets, I also included some fun Marvel and Disney Junior themed toys and accessories. Luckily for me, Disney has a whole line of Marvel Superhero AND Sofia the First Easter basket fillers at Walmart. From superhero water guns to sparkly hair accessories, they had it all and my Easter basket shopping trip was easy peasy!

After the kids look through their baskets, we either cook a special breakfast at home or go out to brunch with friends. I love seeing all the kids in their Easter dresses and suits! Our neighborhood has a big Easter Egg hunt that the kids usually participate in and then it’s back home to play with all the fun things that the Easter bunny brought. This year, I got a little crafty with their Easter baskets. They are actually galvanized buckets that you can find at any hardware store, covered in fabric. I love how they turned out and after Easter is over, we can reuse them to organize art supplies. They are super easy to make and I’m giving you all the step by step details so you can make one too!

Step 1: Head to Walmart to gather your supplies. While you are there, stop by the Easter section to grab Disney Junior and Marvel toys, eggs and other fun goodies to go inside your Easter buckets!

Step 2: Lay the bucket on its side and trace the top and bottom onto the fabric as you roll it. You only need to trace half the bucket.

 Step 3: Fold the fabric in half and cut a little outside of the trace lines.

Step 4: Brush mod podge onto a section of the bucket and attach the fabric. Continue mod podging around the bucket until it is covered with fabric. Brush a coat of mod podge over the fabric and allow to dry.

Step 5: Once dry, take an exacto knife and trim the fabric around the edges. You can embellish with coordinating ribbon if you’d like.
