We loved how our solid color bags really made the patterned eggs pop! Our no-sew bunnies were the perfect touch to give our tote bags an Easter feel.
Place enough eggs and glue around the table so everyone can easily reach what they want to use for decorating their tote bag.
The kids loved choosing which patterned eggs to put on their tote bags. Using the foam brushes, paint the glue on the backside of the fabric eggs. Use a little pressure to make sure the eggs are secure.
For a little sparkle, add round gems and flower rhinestones.
For the finishing touch, add a cotton ball for your bunny’s tail!
Once the kids are done with their tote bags, lay them flat to dry. We would suggest letting them dry overnight so the glue really sets. These DIY tote bags are such a great way to get your little ones excited about Easter. The kids loved adding their own touches and they couldn’t wait to head out for an Easter Egg hunt.
We hope you enjoyed this DIY, and let us know how your tote bags turnout. We made these fun totes at our Colorful Easter Celebration. Check out all the details on that party for more Easter inspiration!
