Instructions

  1. Paint every-other slat on the basket a different color of Folkart paint. Paint the wood disk, wood letter and the wood beads with the color of your choice using the selected colors.
  2. Cut strips of paper to fit on the slats and a circle to fit the wood disk. Working with each strip of paper, coat both sides with Mod Podge, position on the slat and topcoat with more Mod Podge. Use your fingers to press out any air bubbles. Smooth your brush strokes. Continue until the entire basket is covered. Apply the circle paper to the painted wood disk in the same fashion using Mod Podge.
  3. Hot glue a band of velvet ribbon around the top edge of the slats on the basket.
  4. Thread the beads onto the raffia ribbon. Tie the raffia round the handles. Hot glue the leaves to the end of the handle. Hot glue the letter onto the wood disk and then glue the disk to the top center of the leaves. Tie a decorative bow around the handles.
  5. Fill the basket with fresh fruit, faux or real mini pumpkins or breads.
