Make a Dollar Tree Easter Basket with handmade craft items that your family and friends are sure to love using your Cricut machine!
With Easter just around the corner, we’re all thinking about Easter baskets and crafts. We’re pressed for time and money, but we still want to put together something special for our little ones. In this video, I’m covering both!
I’ve collected items from Dollar Tree, Hobby Lobby and Walmart to put together a budget friendly Easter basket that is customized with the help of our wonderful Cricut Maker and Explore Series machines. And for fun, I’ve got several homemade crafts to add to your Easter haul with full instructions!
