Here's how to create Colorful Dollar Tree Easter Baskets:
To begin the 5 Minute Colorful Easter Baskets, gather all supplies. This step might actually take longer than making the baskets! I love to mix and match all of the colors.
Attach Large Pom Fringe Trim in a fun bright color to the lower edge of each basket with a glue gun and glue sticks. Have the kiddos help with the colors for their basket. I love this color assortment.
Attach Mini Pom Pom Fringe Trim in a coordinating color to the top edge of each basket with a glue gun and glue sticks. If the kiddos are old enough, let them help you with the gluing. This is a fabulous assortment.
Attach Tiny Rick Rack Trim in a vibrant color to the handle of each basket with a glue gun and glue sticks. I love how these baskets had different colored handles and baskets. This assortment is a great price.
Here is a detailed photo of each basket and its unique combination of colors and trims. To finish the 5 Minute Easter Baskets, fill them with paper shred grass and plastic Easter eggs filled with the kiddos favorite candy. I love Dollar Tree for Easter candy because I can buy small amounts of ALL their favorites!
5 Minute Colorful Easter Baskets
I hope you will use my Quick and Easy Dollar Tree Easter Basket project as a jumping-off point to showcase your creativity and get crafty with the kiddos soon. The Dollar Tree is the perfect place to get ALL of your Easter supplies from baskets to plastic eggs to Easter grass, plus candy and small toys! Customizing the ideal basket for each and every member of your family is quick, easy, and CHEAP! An easy hack for Easter grass is to use paper shreds from the gift wrapping section which is available is so many bright and vibrant colors.
