I was in Target the other night, looking for Easter baskets for my little boys, and I wasn’t having much luck. I had already been to several places over the last few weeks, and I just couldn’t find what I was looking for–without paying a lot for it.Then I happened to go down the gardening aisle, and found the most darling tin pails in different colors. They were a great size, at a really great price–only $2.99. Woot! I couldn’t resist, and decided to buy one for each of my kids–still spending less than I would have to buy 2 new baskets! (and let’s face it, I have a thing for matching! :) ) If you can’t find the colored pails, you can always buy the metal pails, and use colored vinyl–or tie cute colored ribbon onto the handle.

I added white vinyl that I cut on my Silhouette–initials on one side, and names on the other side. (Font = Century  Gothic)  I’m so happy with how they turned out, and they will be perfect for egg hunts and visits from the Easter bunny!

I also love that they’re so easy to stack and store after Easter is over.

UPDATE:  We’re on the fourth year of using these pails, and we LOVE LOVE LOVE them!  Super cute, easy to tell which pail belongs to which child, easy stacking for storage, and did I mention they’re cute? :)

Share and save for later!

  1. I loved this idea! I have been to 3 different targets and can't find the pails though. What target did you go to? I wish I could come across some for my 2 little kids. Thanks a million. You are wonderful! I love your blog!

  2. Very creative! I haven't tried cutting vinyl with my cricut machine yet, but this would be a great project to try it on! Also love the shredded paper.

  3. I am wondering what you used to paint the pails and how the paint is holding up? I have some that I want to paint but I want to make sure the paint holds up! Thanks!

  4. The pails from target were already colored. I found two pink ones at my target but that was it and they haven't gotten any more in. I did find some at Joann, but they were also well picked over – but definitely check your local store if you can't find them at target. I found them in an odd place. I think it was by wooden crates and craft items…. between the yarn aisles and the brown paper mache boxes/letters. They definitely seemed in an odd place to me.
