DIY Tutorial - Cute Easter Craft


Spring is officially here!  I love seeing all of the cute spring and Easter decorations in all of the stores.  Want to make this quick and easy craft?  This would be perfect to display at an Easter/Spring party, to bring into your child's class (or your class if you are a teacher!), to bring into the office, or wherever you would like!

I found these adorable tin planters at Target in the Dollar section:


Then spray paint with your color of choice (I chose white).


Let dry for at least 24 hours.


Fill the planter with some styrofoam (can be found at any craft store or dollar store) and some basket filler (like Easter grass, shredded paper, etc. can also be found at any craft store or dollar store.  I was lucky and used some that I already had.)


Insert a treat on a stick, like these adorable bunny lollipops I found at Dollar Tree (each package contained 6 lollipop bunnies for $1).  Or with other treats like Oreo Pops, marshmallow pops, cake pops, etc.  


Fill the tin with more basket filler to completely cover the styrofoam.  For an extra touch, you can attach these personalized Easter tags onto the sticks before inserting into styrofoam.  You can find the tags in my Etsy shop! When you bring this cute craft to your destination, you can proudly give out your special individual gifts and know that you made the beautiful display all by yourself!


If you make one of these crafts, I would love to see!  Send me some pics or the link to your photos.  Happy Spring!!
