DIY Easter Pail From Reused Items
Itâ€™s almost Spring and with Easter not far away, it is time to start thinking about Easter baskets ideas. There are many different ways to make a stylish Easter basket but this DIY Easter pail is made from reused items, is super cute, and not only can it be used as a decorative Easter basket, but it can also be used in place of a gift bag or a hostess gift. I also like that can be used to hold flowers or loose items. This design is the spring version of my DIY decorative pail.
How to make the DIY Easter Pail
- Press together the top of the can with your hands to make the top into an oval shape.
- Draw marks on opposite sides of the can, about Â¼ inch from the top, where the handle will be inserted.
- Place the can on a hard surface and hammer a nail into each of the marked areas to make a hole.
- Spray paint the can and cork white. Let dry.
- Cut a piece of the patterned and green ribbon the length to wrap around the can plus 1/2 inch for overlap.Â Attach it to the top rim of the can with craft glue.
- Attach small pieces of ribbon to the to the center front of the can to make the flower stems.
- With pliers,Â straightenÂ the hook ends of the handle and insert the ends into the holes in the can. Bend the hooks back in to secure.
- Make a cut in one long side of the cork and slide it onto the handle. Use craft glue to secure it in place and fill in the cut side with glue.
- Attach the flower ornaments to the top of the stems with craft glue. Make loops with small pieces of ribbon to make the leaves and attach with craft glue.
- Trace the bottom of the can onto the felt and cut out. Glue to the bottom of the can with craft glue.
- Fill the can with shredded tissue to complete your Easter Pail.
