Picnic Basket

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

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!
