  • Old yogurt container (or any other recycled container with straight sides)
  • Twigs
  • Glue
  • White paper/pen
  • Ribbon
  • Flowers


  1. Gather some twigs from outside. Snap twigs to the approximate size of the yogurt container and glue to side. Allow glue to mostly dry before moving on to another side. Or, if you’re making multiples, work on another “basket” while the first one dries.

I'll get some sticks picked up in my yard, too! lol Kids LOVE to collect sticks! I'll help them glue together and make the container and I'll get a pack of petunias and we'll plant them in their containers!
