Kid's Craft: Recycled Milk Jug Basket Mother's Day Gift

The Frog Princess made this fantastic basket for me for Mother's Day this year.

Her kindergarten class made them, with their wonderful teachers
(whom I adore and will miss terribly in a few short days!)

They cut the top off a 1 gallon plastic milk jug.
Then they decoupaged tissue paper squares with a water and Elmer's School glue mixture.
When they were dry, the kids laced beads and silk flowers onto pipe cleaners
and added them as handles.

I love my new up-cycled basket so much.
I think we're going to have to make a bunch of them this summer!

Now I'm debating what to keep in it...
I'm thinking my small baby washcloths that are a kitchen staple around here
for wiping spills and sticky faces + hands.
This basket is much more artsy and green than the store-bought variety.

Go ahead and make one, you know you want to!
