Can you believe that we are just a few weeks away from Easter!  We decorated for spring so my kids are counting down the days.  Plus, Grandma and Grandpa will be here visiting for Easter so they are extra excited.  When we were decorating, I realized that I have no idea where my kids Easter Baskets are.  I know we had some last year, but they seem to have mysteriously disappeared! I went to the store to buy them each one, but they averaged about $5+ per pail and with 4 kids, I just didn’t want to pay that.

So, I decided to make my own.  :)  I went to the dollar store, picked them each up a beach bucket and decided to turn it into their easter basket.  This now has a multi-purpose.  You following me?  :)  Not only do they have a nice and deep easter basket, which might I add is pretty perfect for going to the city Easter Egg Hunt, but then they also have a personalized beach pail for when Easter is over.  Plus, being personalized, we will always remember whose belongs to who.

DIY Personalized Easter Pail

Beach Bucket (dollar store)
Cricut Machine
White Vinyl

Cut out your kiddos name with your Cricut Machine. I use contact paper to easily get it into place on the pail. Thats it. Bam. Yep. You’re Done! Easy, easy and you didn’t spend $5+ for a one purpose bucket. :)


  1. I love this idea, Melissa! I have seen those buckets at the Dollar Store and those would be perfect to personalize for the kids.

  2. I seriously love this Melissa! It is so simple; but so stinking cute! My kids would relish in this!

  3. That’s adorable. I love that the pail has an actual use once it’s done being used as a basket.

    Easter is coming way too fast! Where did the time go??? Love your buckets of goodies!!!

  5. I purchased a few of these buckets at Target when they had a clearance sale. Wasn’t quite sure what to do with them, but I love this!

  6. Ahhh, i never thought of doing this, such an easy way to personalize – love it!!

  7. I don’t have a Cricut, but I think I can still make this. Way cheaper than the ones you get at the store and super fun!

  8. I think it is a really cool idea to make personalized Easter baskets. My kids would love his, plus I could easily get the bucket at the dollar store!

  9. That is so cute and would be the great to reuse during the summer or for storage.

  10. what a cute idea, so wish I had one of these cuircut machines!

  11. Such an adorable Easter pail! Love it!

  12. What a great idea! The bright colors of your eggs and bucket really caught my eye, too.

  13. That’s so cute. I love the idea of a pail instead of a basket!! More reusable.

  14. This is such a cute idea. Buckets are so fun for kids, you can use it in summer and winter. 😛

  15. I’ve used beach buckets before, but never thought to personalize them with names. Great idea, and much cheaper than buying baskets!

  16. What a great idea. Makes it easier for your child to find their pail during the egg hunt.

  17. Such a cute idea… my MIL made something similar last year with her cricut .. this sure will be a fun Easter Surprise..thanks for sharing

  18. So simple and so cute! Hmm…might have to do this for my son and then he can use the bucket for our trip to the beach!
