This DIY Personalized Easter Pail is perfect for collecting eggs at an Easter Egg Hunt.DIY Personalized Easter Pail

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 Easter Bucket and with 4 kids, I just didn’t want to pay that.

So, I decided to make a DIY Personalized Easter Pail.  🙂  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.

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!

  6. 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!

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

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

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

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

  11. 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
