Reused Fruit Baskets

Snack cups can be transformed into mini Easter baskets. These cute little containers would dress up Easter table or make great party favors.

To make the handle, poke two holes in the cup and feed wired chenille through the holes. Cut a flower shape out of decorative cardstock and glue it to the bottom of the cup to form the base. Wrap the cup with purple craft paper and create decorative grass with green craft paper (I used leftover party streamers). Decorate the front of the cup with flowers and beads or any decorative items you have on hand.

Decorative Pail

Accent your home with this stylish flower pail created from repurposed and recycle items found around the house. This design has dimension and elegance that could not be achieved from using new items. This decorated pail can be used hold flowers, hold small items, and it can even double as a gift or Easter basket. I entered this project in the Green is Universal reuse contest.
