DIY Art Supplies Gift Basket
(Great non-candy Easter Basket idea!)
A great themed gift basket idea you can make for a child in your life – is this fun DIY Art Supplies gift basket. Girls and boys alike love art supplies – new scented markers or glittery stickers, a shaped paper punch out or some stencils – there are lots of items you can put together that the little artist probably doesn’t already have.
Start with a supply tote from the dollar store – this was just $1 at the Family Dollar!
Fill it with goodies – and if you have anything larger, you can stack your basket on top of it. I like to work on my art supply collection year round – any time I spot something on clearance, I add it to the gift closet. This makes it pretty darn affordable to present the little artist with several fun items. Fill in the spaces with goodies from the Dollar Aisle at your local CVS – these foam sunshines and flowers were super cheap, and the bag of fuzzy balls were only $1 at Big Lots.
This art supplies gift basket would be perfect for a non-candy Easter Basket (just add Easter Grass to the bottom layer!) Or help lessen the blow of back-to-school with a cheerful DIY homework caddy,
