:: Chalkboard Bunny Bins ::

In the 11th hour this year I present to you, chalkboard bunny bins!  These are so simple to assemble and useful for everything from teacher happy's to Easter baskets for your littles. 

I filled mine with shredded kraft paper and Reese's eggs for my sons' teachers, but the possibilities for filling are endless!

If you're rolling your eyes at this point because it is mere days before Easter and you have a schedule that would make a grown man cry, never fear!  These can be done in the twitch of a bunny's tail. (Seriously). I know that's corny, but it's true!

DIY Easter Bunny Bins 

Step one: go to walmart and purchase bunny chalkboard stickers. They are in the Easter section and come one to a pack for .97 cents!  

Step two: go to lowes and purchase mini galvanized buckets ($3.48 each)

Step Three: adhere bunny label to bucket and write teacher's name, your child's name, or "Happy Easter!" in chalkboard marker

Step Four: fill with shredded kraft paper or Easter grass and your choice of Easter treats!

So there you have it-for around $5 you've got yourself a pretty cute gift, Easter basket or container for your floral centerpiece this Easter!  And not a moment too soon! 😉

I hope your Easter is filled with friends, family and fun while remembering the awesome hope we have in our RISEN savior, Jesus Christ!

God has laid this verse on my heart countless times over the last two weeks after being reminded of it during community group, and I wanted to share it with each of you:

The Lord’s Love for Unfaithful Israel

14 “But then I will win her back once again.
    I will lead her into the desert
    and speak tenderly to her there.
15 I will return her vineyards to her
    and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope.
She will give herself to me there,
    as she did long ago when she was young,
    when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt.

I pray daily that he will turn our "valley of trouble into a gateway of hope!"  What a beautiful image of hope and renewal we can have this Easter, even in the midst of our heartache. 

Happy Easter, Livy!  We love and miss you so!
