Easter Basket from Formula Cans

I have a huge collection of formula cans under my sink and I knew they would make cute little Easter baskets. I washed the inside out and then took off the label. I cut out burlap and hot glued it to the can. I used ruffled crepe paper in the middle. (I bought it on etsy). I then used an old image (you can find free ones online) of a little girl and turned her into a fairy. The one can (or basket) I spelled out Easter with old game pieces. I drilled holes in the side of the can and used ripped fabric strips to make the handle and just tied them off. I think they turned out pretty cute. I figured there was no sense in buying baskets at Walmart when I could do something creative for the girl baskets I'll be giving out. Namely for my nieces and a friend's daughters. I might make one up for my little neighbor girl who is new in the neighborhood.
