DIY Painted Easter Basket

And just like that we’re coming up on Easter! I haven’t found a holiday yet where a rainbow color palette doesn’t work and Easter is no exception. Whether you go bold or with pastels for your decor, this DIY painted Easter basket is sure to be the perfect way to gift that candy… or display it for yourself like I plan on doing! Here’s how:

Materials
Wooden baskets
Acrylic Paint
– Paint brush
– Tape or paper (optional for keeping clean lines)

The project is pretty straight forward– just paint the wooden strips! I freehanded the paint, but if you can’t keep a steady line and are looking for some additional support, tape off your sections or use a sheet of paper to cover up the other section.

Another thing to note that is that these baskets do have some metal on the sides where the handles are attached. If you’re giving these to kids, you may have to remove them or cover them somehow so they don’t scratch themselves when they dig for their candy.

Once the paint is dry, add your Eater grass (opt for paper if you can!), candy, eggs, and more! It’s so cute that after the holiday is over that you could use this in other areas in your home. I think mine will go with my craft storage to help keep me organized!
