Craft Project: Berry Basket Gift Basket

A great way to recycle plastic berry baskets is to transform them into festive containers for treats. Look for the baskets in a variety of bright colors at supermarkets. Fill with dad's favorite treats for a "sweet" Father's Day gift.


Approximate Time: 30 minutes


  • clean berry basket
  • narrow ribbon
  • scissors
  • craft glue
  • chenille stem
  • coffee filter
  • candy or cookies


Weave narrow ribbon through the slats of the basket. Use craft glue to secure the ends. Twist end of chenille stem around opposite sides of basket to create a handle. Place a coffee filter inside the basket and fill with cookies, candy, snack mix, etc.
