Decorated Dollar Store Buckets

At the end of the school year (last year), Brody’s teacher’s asked if I could help them decorate some Dollar Store baskets for the three kids in his class that were graduating and going off to Kindergarten.  I would bend over backwards for these teacher’s and the kids (as I got to love on them throughout the school year). :)

I asked what each child was into (Angry Birds, Harry Potter, and Racing).  I then ran with the idea (using my Silhouette Cameo and some vinyl) and decorated the front with their names on them and did a little something small on the back.  The teacher’s filled the baskets with a ton of goodies for them (sorry, no pictures of the final look with them full).

Here are the baskets.  They were so easy to make and I think they made a Dollar Store find turn into something that looks so much more.
