Make An Easter Basket Using Recycled Materials
(Oklahoma City, OK)
How to make an Easter basket using recycled materials...
First get a 2 liter soda bottle (colorful is nice) - you can use smaller for decoration but if the child is going to use it a bigger one is better.
An adult cuts off the bottom of a bottle with an Exacto/box knife or a good sharp pair of scissors. Use your judgment as to where based on the shape of the bottle and the size you want. Clean well.
Use a hole puncher (or the knife or scissors) to make a hole in the sides for the handle.
I like to use some nice ribbon, but you could use pipe cleaners as well. Glue or tie in a knot as necessary to keep it in the basket.
Hot glue the top edge with ribbon, use dimensional paint, or glue with a cute scrap of cloth to cover. Its probably all ugly and uneven and even if it isn't it could be a bit sharp.
Decorate! Paint, glue on eggs or bunnies or whatever you like. Use your imagination.
Fill with Easter grass - you have a fun and earth friendly Easter basket.
That's a lovely and cute Easter craft for kids that allows them to create their own unique Easter basket or as a gift for someone else.
