DIY Kids Easter Bouquet
If you have children, you know how expensive making up Easter baskets can be. Well, I decided to try something a little different: An Easter Bouquet. Each of the items needed can be bought at your local dollar store, and you can customise it however you like! I made mine for my 5-year-old daughter.
What You Will Need:
- Wooden skewers
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- Small vase, Rose Bowl or container of choice. You could use a coffee cup, travel mug, the options are endless!
- Drill with small bit or a hammer and nail
- Goodies of your choice
- Some plastic eggs already have holes in the bottom. Mine did not! So you need to get crafty. I used a small drill bit in my hubbies electric screwdriver and added holes. Once you have the holes ready, push the eggs onto the wooden skewers. Make the lengths varied so they display better. Now you have Easter Egg “Flowers” for the bouquet.
- Now for the goodies. Line the bottom of the vase with small easter eggs.
- Arrange your “Easter Egg Flowers” in your container of choice.
- Attach your goodies to your skewers using tape and add them to the bouquet.
- Add any extras. I like to add stickers, jewellery, and pencils
- Tie a ribbon around and you are done!
The best thing about this is you can really customise it. Teenage girl? Use makeup goodies. Young boy? Use toy cars and darts for a dart gun. The possibilities are endless!
