Create a pretty Easter Craft from a Thrift Store Find. I’m glad that I have a stash of thrift store items that I can use for crafts right now. This Easter decor piece is easy to put together and very budget friendly.

I bought a wood crate at my local Goodwill not long ago. I wasn’t sure just what I would use it for, but now that I’m creating Easter decor, it was the perfect piece for a project I’ve had in mind.
Easter Decor with Eggs and Flowers
I’m happy to again join the monthly Thrift Store Challenge group! Each month participants are challenged to:
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.
Meet the Hosts
This wood crate was priced at only $1.99 at Goodwill. It’s solid wood and it’s in very good condition.
The first thing I did was remove the metal label. Fortunately, it was screwed on so it was easy to remove. The dark brown wood doesn’t work for Easter decor, so the next step was to give it paint makeover. It took two coats of DecoArt Chalk Paint to get the coverage I wanted.
To dress the crate up, I added a strip of green ribbon. It’s hot glued together to the crate on the back. I searched through my craft stash for something to add to the front of the crate and found some extra felt flowers I made for a wreath several years ago. There’s an easy tutorial for making these little flowers on my Felt Rosettes on Yarn Wreath post.
Next, I added some white Easter grass to each section of the crate.
These plastic eggs are ones that I used a couple of years ago for a fun Bunny Patch Dollar Store Craft. I love the soft colors of them and they go well with colors I use in our sun room.
I always have extra faux flowers on hand because whenever a craft store is having a great sale, I scoop some up for future projects.
I snipped the stems short enough that the flowers fit just above the eggs.
I have this on a tabletop in our sun room with a wood bunny next to it for a pretty Easter vignette. I added a small LED candle that’s wrapped in lace to the center of the crate.
