Create these EASY and Cute Easter Buckets (plus, I’ve included some FREE Printables!). Easter is full of springtime themes and fun activities for kids – and candy – and these buckets are a nice twist on Easter baskets for kids. They make perfect Easter gifts.
I’m always excited for Easter because we have a big break from holidays after Christmas. Don’t get me wrong… it’s a much needed break, but I still love preparing for each holiday and Easter is no exception!
I think this is going to be the year of the chic Easter basket because gold is popping up EVERYWHERE! I decided to join in on the trend with these cute buckets! The printables are very versatile, though, so you don’t have to stick to the trend if you’re not a big fan of gold.
These simple printables are a great, super easy way to create personalized Easter baskets, favors, and buckets. You can print as many of them out for personal use for free as you want, then add them to your Easter dinner table decorations, use them as gift tags, and more.

How to Make Personalized Easter Buckets
To make these, you’ll need:
- My FREE Printables, for personal use only
- Galvanized buckets (I found them at Target in the dollar section)
- Easter grass (also at Target!)
- Card Stock
- 2″ hole punch (optional)
- 3″ hole punch (optional)
- Hot glue or tape
- Paper Straws
- Easter candy of your choice ( I used gold eggs to match!)
First, download and print the printables on heavier card stock paper. Next, cut out the bunnies with scissors and the circle tags with hole punches, then attach them to matching paper straws with glue or tape. The buckets I bought already had a ribbon tied to them – I removed those ribbons and tied metallic bows on the sides instead.
Now you’re ready to fill your buckets with Easter grass and candy and insert the straws down the sides of the buckets. You can also print out the large Easter tag and attach it to the front of the buckets using the tape or hot glue. Whether you include the straws or affix the tags to them, I think they’re adorable. And if you’re making a bunch, it’s so cute to mix and match so you’ve got a whole variety to choose from!
These are super easy, right?? Personalized favors and cute buckets for your Easter celebrations and egg hunts in no time. They only took me a few minutes to put together, and that’s including design time… so I pretty much cut your Easter preparation in half. You’re welcome 🙂
