DIY Easter Basket

My son was only 6 months old when he celebrated his first Easter. I thought it would be fun to pass down my Easter basket to him, but the more my husband and I thought about it, we realized he needed a basket of his own. So for Easter this year I made him a basket.

I found this at an antique store for $.50!!




I just spray painted the basket and a wooden letter "A" in Blossom White. Then I just hot glued on ribbon and the wooden A.



For a $4.00 investment I was very pleased with how it turned out and I was so excited for my son to use it this year for Easter.
