Grab your favorite children’s book and make some color copies. Rip the pages into smaller sections – no larger than 3 inches square. Following the directions on the bottle of Mod Podge, paint adhesive onto the box, place the torn pieces on top of the wet adhesive and paint again on top of the pieces until the hat box is completely covered. Fill your cute hat box with Easter eggs & candy! Add large bow for a little extra color.

Use any takeout food box (we used these pastel “Chinese takeout” containers from our local party supply store) and cover in round stickers to create a polka dot look. Separately, dip store-bought fortune cookies in melted colorful chocolate melts and let dry. Fill boxes with good fortunes and give them to friends!

Paint any terra cotta pot with chalkboard paint, following the manufacturers instructions (it can take up to 3 coats). After completely dry, rub with chalk, lightly coating entire pot to “cure” the paint. Wipe off excess and plan your art! Write or draw your Easter message with chalk or chalkboard pen and fill with gardening goodies for a fun gift basket.

And finally, a quick and simple jute rope covered Easter basket.

What you’ll need:
Jute
Galvanized bucket
Glue dots or hot glue

Wrap jute or twine, starting from the bottom of a galvanized bucket, going up along the side and around to the bottom again to create a handle. Wrap jute around sides of the bucket, occasionally hot gluing (or glue dotting) to the sides. Continue until entire bucket is wrapped in jute and handles are secured. Fill with green grass filler and jordan almonds for an earthy-feeling Easter basket.
