recycled cereal bag easter basket

Do you buy bags of cereal instead of boxes? Our family does! This year, TerraCycle, the company that recycles product packaging and transforms it into cool new products, has provided a great idea for reusing your cereal bags. With a few clever snips and folds, you can turn a plastic cereal package into a cool Easter Basket. I love to transform recycled materials into fun craft projects. Last year, we made a recycled milk jug into an Easter basket. Can’t wait to try this idea this year! [how to make a recycled cereal bag easter basket]
