This basket is perfect for adding a little pizzazz to your picnic table for your Independence Day Barbecue! It’s super easy to make, and looks great!
Things you’ll need:
A Basket. We found ours for 25¢ at a thrift store.
Wooden Pre Cut Stars- $2.24 at Walmart
Acrylic Paints in Red White and Blue- 97¢ each at Walmart
Elmers Craft Bond Foam Mounting Tape or Hot Glue Gun
Foam Paint Brushes
How to make this project:
Paint with the basket weave until covered in desired color. You can paint it thicker for a very white look, or thinner for a more whitewashed look. Allow paint to dry.
Attach the stars to the edge of the basket using the Elmer’s Craft Bond Foam Mounting Tape, or a hot glue gun.
We used ours for napkins, but you can use yours for anything! Fill with glitter streamers, foam cubes and artificial flowers, or “fireworks” for use as a centerpiece..
If you make this project, I’d love to see it! Feel free to post a link in the comments!!
