Homemade Recycled Easter Basket

For a quick, easy, and cheap Easter basket, rinse and clean an empty liter soda bottle, cut a 1 inch "ring" at the top of the body of the bottle (after the spout), and cut in half. Trim the rest of the body of the bottle to the height of the "basket" you'd like. Attach both ends of the ring you cut out (above) to the sides of the basket with plain or decorative brads. Use a small paper punch to place holes on opposite sides.

Decorate the outside of the basket with stickers (letters to spell the child's name and/or Easter stickers). You can also make your own stickers with either a Xyron machine (found at Michael's, JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, etc.), cut out magazine pictures lightly glued to the basket, or go online for other methods of making your own stickers. Shred scrap papers (white, colors, scrap pages) and put inside basket for the "stuffing" and fill with inexpensive candies or little gifts. Enjoy!
