Easter Baskets 2016

Welcome to the 2016 Easter Basket link up! I have been impatiently waiting for this day for over a month! I adore everything Easter; Jesus' resurrection, the flowers, the colors and the festivities. Throw in a gift basket and I'm all kinds of happy! This will be Brielana's second Easter and now that she's older she can participate more and really get into the holiday spirit (says I, who included some food in her basket just to spike her interest ;) 
I veered from using traditional baskets because the items I picked for the girls were oddly shaped. Instead I used Amazon boxes that I had cut  and wrapped over with white paper. I love how they turned out! I also got to do some crafting by making personalized tags. I didn't do it yet but that round chipboard tag will have a 'B' on it come Easter (I always forget something, sigh.)
I scored at The Dollar Spot this year and was able to purchase the majority of the girl's goodies there. Target has been killing it! So sorry I can't link to all of these but I'll do my best. Affiliate links used. A small commission may be received if you purchase an item through my links. Thank you for supporting my blog!

  8. I should have gotten the watering can. Aria has one but the handle fell off and it's all rusted now. She uses it all the time though.
    Love your DIY baskets too! Super cute, love the banner name.

  9. SUCH cute baskets. Repurposing for the win, and I love the little banners. Putting the eggs in a jar adds to the cuteness, too! Great job!
