DIY Picket Fence Easter Basket

Creating a nice Easter basket can be trickier than finding good Christmas presents! Not only do you need to fill the basket with nice little gifts, but you also have to make sure the basket itself is visually appealing. I usually get empty Easter baskets from the store to fill for my kids, but this year they all seemed kind of plain to me. So I figured, why not use my DIY skills to make some cute custom Easter baskets this year! All you need is a few inexpensive materials to make this DIY Picket Fence Easter Basket!

I like to fill my kids’ Easter baskets with a mix of food treats and non-candy gifts. I usually can pick up some inexpensive toys in Target’s Dollar Spot or in the dollar store. Amazon also has a good selection of inexpensive Easter basket stuffers. While I like to save the majority of the Amazon gift cards I earn through Perk for Christmas, I do use a few of them to get some cute, small Easter toys and treats from Amazon!
