Basket Makeover

When I saw Rosemary's post , I just had
to make a basket like hers for myself.

She told me where she purchased her basket
and I tried to find some , but to no avail.

However, I was very surprised to realize that I already had a basket like hers although darker in color so I immediately took the flowers out of it that originally came in it and started the transformation process.

Love how she turned out and this one is for me to keep.

I used antique red cross white gauze for the ribbon, a white ruffle off of a skirt that I purchased at the Goodwill some time ago and a parchment rose. I also added a paper embellishment to the front of it. I enjoyed making it and it didn't take long at all. Just a little paint, hot glue, one burnt finger and a few minutes later wa la it was done.

Happy weekend everyone! Blessings~

I love your "new" basket! The grey against the white make it look so weathered and old. Perfect!

Excellent job. Sorry about your finger though. Small price to pay for beauty. *smiles*
One more project for me to try. I am on the lookout for a basket now.
