Easter Recycled Basket Part 2

April 2017

Easter Milk Basket

Your children will fun have creating an original basket from a gallon milk jug, with a little help from you! 


  • Gallon milk jug, rinsed and dried 
  • Sharpie marker 
  • Scissors 
  • Assorted ribbon 
  • Scrapbook paper 
  • Hot glue gun 
  • Mod-Podge glue 



1. Using a Sharpie marker, draw a line 31/2” from the bottom of the jug. Cut on line to remove the top of the jug, leaving a basket form.


2. Cut a piece of scrapbook paper 12”l x 3”w.


3. Fold in thirds and glue in place.


4. Wrap around a salt box and secure with a rubber band to form the handle.


5. Staple handle in the center of opposite sides of the basket; stapling from the inside out to avoid exposed rough edges. Using a hot glue gun, adhere ribbon to the top edge. Cut 2 pieces of scrapbook paper 12” x 1”. Glue to the inside top edge of basket to finish the inside edge. Hold in place with wooden clothespins while drying.


Happy Easter!
