I have a few fun projects in mind with these but couldn't help but whip together this silly and whimsical Easter project using a recycled soup can and simple tissue paper. I thought these would be a great way to present a friend or your kids teachers with some pretty flowers this Spring.
1. soup can
2. pipe cleaners
3. tissue paper
4. fabric stripes
5. fringe scissors
6. double sided tape
7. packing tape
8. doily or other decorations
Make some little bunny ears using two pipe cleaners and then tie a knot at the bottom with the fabric scraps and wrap up the entire length of the ears covering the entire thing.
Next measure out a folded piece of tissue paper to fit around your can and using the fringe (or other) scissors cut fringe along the top to make the grass.
Tape the tissue paper down and then add a bow with more fabric scraps or a doily and bow like I did in the finished project.
Fill the can carefully with some water and pretty Spring flowers and your all set. Could be a cute center piece for an Easter brunch too - just a silly little Easter craft to get your juices flowing today.
