Monogrammed Easter Buckets




Can you believe it is already time to start gearing up for Easter??? Only 6 short weeks left. I have always wanted to make my kids personalized Easter buckets, but have never gotten around to it. I have seen some beautiful hand painted ones, but was worried about their durability. Let's face it, kids are rough. Ok, maybe MY kids are rough...I'm just sayin'.


So with my new found love of vinyl, I decided to monogram these buckets with vinyl dots and lettering. They are very similar to the ornaments I made at Christmas.


After making my 4 cuties these little cuties, I decided to list some for sale in my etsy shop.
Right now, the colors available are hot pink, royal blue, and red. I am on the lookout for some pastel colors and white as well.



The vinyl dots and lettering can be done in any color of your choice. I just really liked the way the white popped off the bright colors of the buckets. I have pretty much any color vinyl you can imagine, so the sky's the limit. They could be personalized to match a child's room, a favorite sports team, or school colors. You can completely customize these to suit your taste!



Another new item I've started carrying are these personalized license plates. They come in hot pink and white zebra, or black and white zebra. Again, the vinyl lettering can be done in any color of your choice.



I really like the 3 initial monogram on these, but the possibilities are endless. You can order them to say pretty much whatever you want. A first name, last name, single initial, school initials, favorite team, mom's taxi, chauffeur...whatever fits you best! I plan to have these new items listed in my etsy shop later tonight. Be sure to stop by and check them out. And if you don't see what you had in mind, leave me a conversation through etsy or e-mail me with your preferences!




Thanks......have a fantastic weekend. I'll see you next week!

Love the easter buckets. Now that I have a Cricut, I'm going to attempt to try out cutting vinyl.

I also love the Easter buckets. I bought personalized Easter buckets from Pottery Barn Kids a while back. I paid an arm and a leg for them but they have held up great over the years. I can't wait to get them out soon!

Cute! Those buckets are adorable! I did a little project with white dots today too - so funny!

I talked to the blog designer and she is working on another design. Keep your fingers crossed!

I think those are adorable, buckets instead of baskets.
Cute, cute, cute.

Love the Easter baskets and the fact that they can do double duty after Easter is over.

I'd ♡ one of the license plates. Can you put "Pampered Me" ? For my pampered chef business ⌣ in the black with a (fsu gold lettering)? I'd ♡ this!!!

So sad that I have a cricut machine, I just don't have the time right now. Email me at

I love these easter baskets! They are adorable and could work for anything. I got a cricut for Christmas and have never used it, but your post inspired me to get it out of the box for the first time!

I couldn't find a bucket like the cool ones you used, but I got a dollar store sand bucket instead! Not too shabby for a first timer. I've got so much learning to do but thanks for inspiring me and thanks for the great tips!

PS I didn't know you could flip the mat around so that's gonna save me so much vinyl :)

Where did you find these buckets? I have looked everywhere for colored metal buckets with no luck. They are too cute! Thanks!
