easter fabric buckets

before just about every holiday, with just a few days to go, I manage to come up with a gazillion crafty things I want to do for the boys.   and, then I remember that I only have a few days and end up calling it quits on most of my ideas.  well, this easter is really no different but I am proud to say that I squeezed in a wee bit of making and these fabric easter buckets will be taking the place of our regular baskets.

I plan to fill them with some quirky toys and just a few sweet chocolates.  the boys are both crazy about chocolate and we happen to live literally half a block from a chocolate factory/shop, which is weird but true…there have been phases when we basically survived on chocolate.  the only problem is we had a pretty bad visit to the dentist recently and have to lay off the sweets.  because nothing whips a mama into shape quite like a shaming from the dental hygienist!  ahem.fabric easter bucketsthe buckets are made based off this lovely tutorial.  I added strips of ribbon to the base of the fabric and one ribbon handle to the side. simple and sweet and ready for easter goodness.

maybe I will even find a little time to make easter bunnies out of old sweaters and felted easter eggs with openings for hiding the chocolate and pom-poms garlands out of green yarn for grass and…well, maybe…maybe not.

    These are so cute! I’ve been meaning to make *myself* some fabric buckets for toting project stuff around the house. Maybe if I make my kids Easter stuff I can use it without guilt afterwards.

      Now that sounds like a plan. Make it *wink* for the kids.

    Those are awesome! I’m always looking for something that will hold Easter goodies in a cute cozy way without the mess of fake grass.

      Thanks! I’m pretty excited about them myself.
