Recycled May Day Basket Idea

I ran across this great idea here.
The kids and I are going to have to do this one!
(Harper, Savannah says HI!) Use tall tin cans (the ones pasta sauce comes in), a coat hanger for the handle, a piece of brown paper grocery bag cut with scalloped scissors and a piece of twine. The cans would be extra sweet with a scrap of pretty scrapbook paper, or fabric and pretty ribbon tied around the middle or you could paint the can. Pierce holes for the handles by nailing a nail in each side of the can.

Make the handle long (about 18 inches) so it will fit over a door knob when filled with flowers.

OMG I absolutely love it. That will be a perfect little gift for my sister in laws for mothers day. I love your ideas.

Believe it or not, way back in 1995, I used to make little pails out of old cans just like this. I painted vintage-looking labels on them, and sold hundreds of them at farmer's markets and street fairs!

So cute! I think I'll give these a try.

P.S. Don't you want to switch gears a decorate a boys version of three is not a crowd:) I need to figure out out to fit all of my triplet boys into a small space and not look chessy.

Loved the way the three is not a crowd turned out for the girls.
