Wooden Tote for Easter:
Welcome Spring and warmer weather with this cute wooden tote for Easter. Wow, we had some record breaking cold weather this winter, even here in Florida, and we are so ready for some warmer days.
This tote was another DIY project that we used up-cycled and leftover wood scrapes to create. We also made some of the tote’s contents: Mr. Bunny and the decoupaged eggs. Overall this was a fun project. Not to mention it cost nearly nothing.
The tote can be styled to fit any decor and/or holiday not to mention it can be used to hold napkins, flatware, salt and pepper shakers and other picnic necessities. Also, it could hold coloring books with jars filled with colored pencils, crayons and/or markers or jars filled with wild flowers. The possibilities are endless.
This tote contains, a jar with baby’s breath, a floral pick with a nest and two eggs, a moss wreath, blue bird nest, bunch of fabric carrots, wooden bunny, and easy decoupaged eggs made by our model.
The tote handle was a spindle from a headboard that was painted a light blue, while the rest was raw wood. Naturally it needed a makeover with some paint and glaze. First, we used Dixie Belle Paint in color Colonel Mustard (a personal favorite) to paint the tote. The next step was to add some character with Van Dyke Brown Glaze made by Dixie Belle Paint. Finally, we finished the tote with clear wax to protect it.
Mr. Bunny was also cut from scrap wood then stained with Voodoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco by Dixie Belle Paint. Added a twine tie for the finishing touch.
The little woolen chick added the right amount of yellow to the contents.
The bottom of the tote was constructed from the scarps of a wooden Noel sign. See that project post here.
