Everybody is looking for something different. Same old, same old just doesn’t cut it, which is why I am on the hunt for some unique Easter Baskets. I’m seeing lots of great stuff as I “ooh” and “ahh” over the Pinterest boards, but I’m not particularly talented when it comes to crafting. My “unique” must also qualify as “easy.” LOL
Occasionally I used to catch a show on HGTV called The High Low Project. I loved watching the designers take expensive, elegant rooms and then do them on the cheap–in other words, design from the challenging boundaries of a budget. They still produced gorgeous, copycat rooms that had all the glamor and class, but for a fraction of the price.
Here are some of my solutions for getting that look of unique Easter baskets for less:
Personalization: Use paint pens rather than stitching to write your child’s name on fabrics. So easy!
Baskets: Don’t set your heart on an “Easter basket.” In fact, steer away from the Easter basket display and head over to the regular basket section of your local crafts store. These will be more durable, and you can use them throughout the year. “Easter-ize” them by using colorful cloth napkins as the liner.
Liners: Speaking of liners, you don’t have to buy a perfectly fitted, monogrammed liner. Try these ideas. (Use what you already have!)
- Colorful bandanas (great color options available HERE)
- Comics from the newspaper (for kids and the young at heart)
- The sports page (for the sports lover)
- Coupons (pictured above)
- Shammy (for a new car owner)
The unique Easter basket idea pictured above is perfect for a person who is new to couponing. It’s a durable basket lined with coupons. (What a great way to get someone started!) It includes a copy of All You magazine, a local city coupon book, and a copy of my book, Saving Savvy: Smart and Easy Ways to Cut Your Spending in Half and Raise Your Standard of Living…and Giving!
