First get a pint-sized ice cream container. Eat the ice cream and wash both the container and the lid clean. Let it dry.
Trace the bottom to the center of the lid, Cut that circle out. Cut out the bottom of the container as well.
Cover the container part and the lid part with cloth separately. Alternatively you can paint the entire thing one color. Glue the container part to the lid. Decorate with ribbons, feathers, flowers, etc. Considering using some old clothes to cover it instead of buying new fabric.
