upcycle two empty soda boxes into an pop artish looking Easter basket
Here is a quick and easy way to upcycle two empty soda boxes into an pop artish looking Easter basket that can be recycled once you are done with it.

My son is in high school and collects Coca Cola memorabilia, so I will not be decorating this any further, but you could decorate it with Easter wrapping paper, magazine pages or even drawing a child has made.

It cost me no money out of pocket and only took 10 minutes to make.

    Cut the handle from the other box - I made my handle about 4 inches wide and the length is two short sides and the long side of one. Cut two of these (I ended up having to piece together the handle on the inside when I glued it down as the box I used was pretty tore up).
