Can-dy Basket



How's this for a simple, charming Easter treat?

1. Gather your cans!!! Be creative with soup cans, coffee cans....all cans!!!
2. Glue decorative paper to sides of cans.
3. Embellish with buttons, ribbons, etc.
4. Bend chenille stems and glue to cans as handles.
5. Fill each can with shredded paper. Top off with a handful of candy or miniature decorative eggs! The tiny glass ones from Michael's would look fab! So easy!!! So cute!!! (Photo from Better Homes and Gardens)

Love, love, love this idea! The little baskets are so pretty and so creative to use something we normally would simply toss. I believe I better think about what I have in my recycle bin!
