FLOWER GIRL BASKETS

I wanted to make some cute flower girl baskets for the styled shoot my daughter and I are collaborating on later this month.  So, I chose to head to my local thrift store just for grins to see if I could find any bargains that I could spruce up.  Little did I know that Saturday's are "half-off", so once I was able to locate a parking spot, I did great.  Take a look at these cute baskets that I found!
BEFORE
Since we'll have a four year old, A six year old and an eight year old, I wanted to have sizes to match.    These little babies were $1.99 each and with the half off sale, you got it...just $1.00.  Can't beat that!  So, I picked up some white satin spray paint and a few flowers at Hobby Lobby (50% off, of course) and ribbon at WalMart (their ribbon prices are awesome!), grabbed my trusty glue gun and went to town.
AFTER

Cute huh?  So, keep your local thrift store in mind when it comes to a project like this...these baskets were in great shape.  You could decorate baskets for a bridal shower, baby shower, or even for Easter.  Just a bit of paint and some "craftiness" and you are good to go!
