You all know how much I love the Dollar Tree. Today I showing you a couple of small Dollar Tree Easter baskets. I made one for my baby grand daughter and a fun, little gift to give friends and/or co-workers.
If you LOVE Dollar Tree crafts and gifts you have hit the right place!
Candy is a fun Easter tradition for most baskets but for a baby it is not appropriate and most of my co-workers and friends prefer not to eat sugary sweets. So, these are some fun non-candy options.
I visited my Dollar Tree a while ago and got a few of these supplies then I got the rest at a store about and hour away.
It is a little frustrating that not all Dollar Trees carry the same items but that is also why it is fun to visit new stores too.
Let’s get started with these fun Dollar Tree Easter baskets!

Baby/ Small Child’s Basket

Childs Basket Purse
Ribbon (I already had the ribbon)
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Step 1: Remove the bunnies from the head band
I need the bunnies from the head band to add to the front and the back of the little purse.
I used scissors and wire cutters to remove them.
Once the bunny is removed from the wire add hot glue to the front of the bunny.
Place the bunny face down onto the back of the little purse.
Step 2: Add a second bunny to the front
Remove the other bunny from the head band and cut off his little cotton tail. (This sounds so mean)
Add hot glue to the back of the bunny and place it onto the front of the little basket purse.
Step 3: Add some ribbon
I had this purple polka dot ribbon and it matched perfectly with the bunnies so I thought I would add some to the top of the bag.
The glue gun is the perfect way to add the ribbon to the bag. Start at the back and work your way all the way around. These action shots from the video aren’t always clear but you get the jist.
It looks so cute when it is done.
I just love it.
Adult Easter Baskets
The Dollar Tree Easter baskets that I made for the adults is even easier than the baby basket.
Cloth Easter Gift Bags
Mini Wine Bottle – or small bottle of your choice
Some Bunny Deserves Wine – Easter Tag (available in the resource library)
Small Bucket (optional)
Shredded paper filler (optional)
Step 1: Add your wine bottle to the bag
These Easter Bunny gift bags are so cute. They are cloth, sort of like a drop cloth.
Tie the neck of the bottle with the jute twine that is included in the gift bag package.
Step 2: Print the Easter tags
I created a fun, little tag to add to any wine Easter gift. These are just fun for friends and/or co-workers.
You can download the tag by going to the resource library. It is in the Printable Tags & Toppers section.
Once printed, cut and trim around the design to make a tag. Punch a hole at the top.
Step 3: Add the tag to the gift bag and bottle
Slide one of the jute strings through the hold in the tag then tie a know to secure.
Once you finish this, you are all done.
If you would like to add it to a bucket you can add some paper shred the just sit the bottle right into the bucket.
Aren’t they just so cute?
And so easy!
