Soup Can Chick

one soup can spray painted yellow
one orange beak cut out of craft foam and glued on can
acrylic paint to paint eyes and cheeks
piece of ribbon tied around the bottom of can
short piece of yarn to fray and glue inside of can for hair
put Easter grass inside finished can and add wrapped Easter candy
This is a quick and easy craft to give as a small gift at Easter.


  1. i really like this idea. i save my cans and beside desk organizers haven't found any great uses. i hope i can do a few in time for easter. i like to re-purpose everything from the cardboard rolls inside tp and paper towels to all the plastic bottles everything from cat litter to fruit juices. do you have ideas for any of these? your cat is so pretty. and i really like your friend's blog also.

  2. Jules, I love to reuse stuff too. Look at older blogs and keep watching the ones I post in the future. I try to reuse tp/paper towel rolls, cans, etc. Glad you liked my chick!
