Paper Straw Easter Bucket with Video Tutorial

Easter is right around the corner!  It has snuck up on me this year, but I couldn't let it slip by without doing a little Easter Project.  Just for fun, I also decided to do a little video of how to make this! If you frequent my blog and galleries, you might remember that I made a bright version of this a while back.  I had some questions about how I did it so the video will walk you through each step.

It's easy!

You might recognize that this is made with paper straws.  They are all the rage and I can't seem to pass up all the pretty colors that I see in the stores.  I hope that I'm not the only one with a whole drawer full of these!  :)


I started with a little bucket that I picked up for $1 at Target.  I used straws and flowers that matched to decorate it.  I love roses and these were awesome since they were already so perfectly coordinated.

Another thing that I seem to buy a LOT of is doilies!  I just love them!  They are such a sweet touch to so many projects and here I used them to give the look of ruffles.

This project was so fun, fast and easy!  I hope you enjoy the video and give it a try yourself!
