BASKET DECORATING

How do you take a bargain basket and turn it into something your own?  You hit a 50% off sale at Hobby Lobby (original price $5.99) and then use some trim and crafting supply leftovers and you get exactly the look you had in your mind's eye.

The lace is leftover from my living room sheers that I made years ago; the ribbon is from my daughter's wedding supplies, as is the wheat and the silver/gold trim.  The whole thing probably took me a total of 20 minutes tops!  Other than the supplies, it took scissors and a glue gun.
What's it for you ask?  Well, the wedding of course!
It's going to hold the Christmas ornaments that I made for the guests.    And after the wedding, you ask?   I think it may get used for the family brunch the next day.....after that, who knows, but I'm confident it will get used.
