Picnic Basket

oddieNovember 13, 2007

I have saved this old basket for awhile, started out the normal brown shade painted it silver did a crackle with white top coat, so it looked weathered, couldnt get a good picture, the flowers are real pretty with silver glitter dusting them,I dipped the candle stick in wax kept doing it till I liked how the wax ran down the side so its also scented a little, the bow is a soft ribbon with silver snowflakes!

so what do you all think, kinda big, but would be cute setting by a fireplace.

Happy Crafting

Very pretty. I love this time of year, everyone's ideas on decorating inspires me to get up and get a few things done. I have a picnic basket I need to do something with, maybe I will try something like this. Thanks, Oddie.

Thank you! always love being a inspiration! had thought frist of doing a fall arangment, but never found the right flowers, you could also set a small tree in one, some gifts around it, fill with scented pincones and a pretty bow, I am sure you will come up with lots of ideas!

It's got a nice bit of sparkle to it. And I like that it's in white-- looks very fresh!
