Can-Can Easter Baskets


Silver Post Medal for All Time! 277 Posts

Recycle cans to make these charming little baskets. I used a large vegetable can, soup can, and tuna can. Embellish with ribbon, buttons, stickers, etc. These are great for Easter or May Day!

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • empty, clean tin cans
  • scrap wallpaper, wrapping paper or scrapbook paper
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • ribbon, buttons, and embellishments
  • chenille stems
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • Easter grass or shredded paper

Instructions:

For the baskets pictured, I used wallpaper, but you can use wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, etc. Carefully remove labels from cans to use as templates. Place label on wallpaper and use pencil to trace around label; cut out. Attach paper to cans with glue. Embellish with ribbons, buttons, stickers, etc. Bend and glue chenille stems to the inside of the can for the handle. Try twisting two chenille stems together for larger cans. Fill cans with Easter grass or shredded paper. Add candy or small gifts.
