Decoupage DIY Avengers Easter Basket

Easter is coming up in just two weeks! I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by! My boys have a big Easter celebration at our public library tomorrow and they are so excited! Like most kids, Easter egg hunts are the highlight of their Easter holiday. Because we keep Easter Sunday a religious day to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, we do all of their egg hunts and Easter parties the days and weeks before Easter Sunday.

In previous years we’ve just used random baskets, usually found last-minute in the attic, for the kids Easter baskets. This year I decided to make the boys matching decoupage Easter Baskets. They are super into character stuff right now and LOVE the Avengers so I thought it would be fun to do a DIY Avengers Easter Basket.

I do most of my shopping at Walmart now because I’m able to price match all my groceries there, so the last time I was there grocery shopping I picked up some craft supplies for my decoupage Easter baskets.

For this project I wanted to use tin pails for my DIY Avengers Easter baskets. I was fortunate enough to find the perfect tin pails in the “Crafts & Sewing” section. They even have a little chalkboard area that I can write their names on the back of their baskets! And they were only $2.97 each!

I was able to find a similar size galvanized pail on At $6.89 it isn’t nearly as cheap as the Walmart one, but if you don’t have a Walmart near you, or can’t find pails at Walmart, it is a great option.

I wasn’t really sure what to use for the main image on the basket. I thought about getting an inexpensive book and cutting out some of the pictures. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find any Avengers books (other than Avengers coloring books, there were oodles of those). Using my ingenuity, I came up with something even better, and cheaper too, than pictures from a book.

Napkins. Yes! I used party napkins for my DIY Avengers Easter basket! I found them in the party supply aisle. They were a whole $1.67 for a pack of 10. Wohoo! Score.

I also picked up a $5 pack of scrapbooking cardstock in the Crafts & Sewing section. There are 50 pages in the pack, and for this project I only used 1 page so I have lots left over for other things.

Enough of my yapping about my awesome deals…

My DIY Avengers Easter basket was sooo easy to make. I craft on a beginner level, and I think it turned out pretty darn good.

Here is how to make your DIY Avengers Easter Basket:

You’ll need:

  1. Cut out one side (square) of your Avengers napkin. If you want your can sort of cut out the background to make the characters stand out a bit more on your basket. I did it both ways so you can see which one you like better.DIY Avengers Easter Basket Instructions
  2. Visually divide your scrapbooking cardstock paper into 4 sections. Brush Mod Podge onto your one quarter of your colored cardstock. Modge Podge Avengers Easter Basket
  3. Carefully place the napkin square on the Mod Podged cardstock. Gently smooth the napkin onto the cardstock. Your napkin will not be completely smooth. You’ll get a nice crinkle effect. If you prefer a crinkle-free image, skip the napkin, and look for your Avenger image on a birthday card, book page, etc.Modge Podge Avengers Easter Basket Instructions
  4. Wait AT LEAST 15 minutes for it to dry completely. Because the air is so moist where I live it took about 30 minutes to dry in between each coat of Mod Podge.
  5. Once your first coat of Mod Podge is dry, carefully Mod Podge over the top of the napkin and cardstock. This coat will be a bit thicker and may take a little longer than the last coat to dry. Make sure you wait for the Mod Podge to dry completely before proceeding to the next step.Modge Podge Avengers Easter Basket2
  6. Cut the cardstock at the top of the napkin or image. Then trim the bottom of the cardstock at the bottom of the image.Decoupage Avengers Easter Basket
  7. Center your Avengers napkin/cardstock combo on your pail and check to see if you need to make any adjustments or trims. I needed to trim mine down a bit. Because the pail is curved, you’ll need to make sure you cut your image so it slightly arches at the top. DIY Decoupage Avengers Easter Basket
  8. Once it fits satisfactorily, brush Mod Podge onto the area of the pail you’ll be placing your image. Also, brush Modge Podge onto the back of your cardstock. Place your cardstock/image on the pail, smooth, and wait for it to dry.
  9. Add one final coat of Mod Podge to your Easter basket. Let it dry.
  10. Add some Easter grass, some goodies, and you’re done!

This DIY Avengers Easter Basket cost me under $5! I already had the Mod Podge and brush, and I only used one piece of that cardstock. I’d say that is a pretty good deal, for such a cute DIY.

I found the perfect Avengers Easter Basket stuffers at Walmart too. I got these Avengers – Titan Hero Series action figures on Rollback for $7.88. They’re big too. My boys are going to have a blast playing with these.
