I’ve said it before. I LOVE Mod Podge. Decoupage is the simplest craft and it gives you almost immediate satisfaction. They say that a coat of paint is the easiest way to transform something…but I say Mod Podge it and really make it fabulous.
These are the Easter baskets I created for my girls. I decoupaged vintage artwork onto simple wooden crates. You don’t have to make two of them, of course – one would be a perfect centerpiece for your Easter table – but I have twins and it feels weird not to make everything in sets of two.
I found this artwork from The Graphics Fairy, one of my favorite sites of all time. I printed out the images, cut them to fit these wooden crates (from Michael’s), and let the Mod Podge do its magic.
If you’re curious about decoupage, the fantastic site, Mod Podge Rocks, has a couple of very informative video tutorials. I also have some pretty detailed instructions on this post (my most ambitious decoupage project ever!).
I found the moss, the eggs and the cute little lady bug at Michael’s as well. My girls are not even two years old and have yet to develop a sweet tooth. They’re not going to know any different if their Easter baskets aren’t filled with candy. Although next year could be a different story…
Next year, maybe I’ll get ambitious and Mod Podge some fancy eggs to go in the baskets. That could be fun!
Have you guys started thinking about Easter? Any fun projects in the works?
