Easter Baskets

The finished product.

The modge podge is not quite dry here.
I dislike Easter baskets. I kind of feel like they are useful for one thing and then they go back into storage. So this is my solution:

I got these little baskets at the dollar store. I got out the scrapbook paper and cut out letters of my kids names. If you have a cricut this would be a lot easier for you. I just cut out free hand. They are not perfect but good. I then modge podged them to the baskets and did 2 coats over the names. I added a cute ribbon and I am done. Very simple yet cute and reuseable. I love that I can put their socks in it after or jewelry and just let them fill it with whatever. It could double as a cleaning basket for the before bed clean up. I got the baskets in colors that would mostly match the kid's bedrooms so that they wouldn't look to off. I think they would be cute no matter what color. Enjoy!
