Frugal Easter Baskets
I washed and dried some milk jugs. Then I peeled off the label, cut a jagged line into the jug, and cut around the front and sides about two inches or so from the top. This way you have an opening in the front of the milk jug. Then I made tissue paper flowers and put them around the top of the jug. I took left over stickers that I had and stuck them all over the jug.
I will fill the jugs with shredded newspaper and fill them with Easter treats. The jugs already look very beautiful and what an eye-pleasing treat it will be when it’s filled! I have already gone to the dollar store and found some great deals!
I’m able to fill those beautiful and FREE jugs with many beautiful Easter treats!!!!!
By the way, instead of real flowers for my table this year my children and I are going to make tissue paper flowers. I found a pack of 30 tissue papers for ….a buck!
You can decorate these jugs in many different ways. Our kids use the same bucket each year and just set it out for the Easter bunny to fill. If you do it this way, you could have the kids decorate their own.
