This is a really easy instructable, kids can do it, the materials are inexpensive, it doesn't take a long time, and you can recycle those strawberry baskets saved from this Summer.

Step 1: Step 1

The materials: scissors
                        strawberry basket
                        silver glitter
                        fine wire (thread, floss, is fine as well)
                        Krylon spray paint (I used 'Make it Pearl'- had it already) you can use white,
                                                silver, or any color you want- (that goes for the glitter too).

I thought glue might be needed somewhere along the line, but I used the wire instead, which is why the tube is blocked out and the wire is stuck on in the photo.
Very clever!
thanks sunshine!
