Cute Baskets

Ever seen these baskets at Walmart? SOOOO ugly. But serves their purpose. To hold stuff.


Oh, and apparently to hold a long hair in the window spot. CUTE.


 Well, I couldn't stand looking at them so after a little bit of brainstorming, I was able to come up with an idea-cover them with burlap! 


After covering them up, I attached some ribbon to the top and glued a little bow on front-voila! Now I need to finish the other two, but I just LOVE how it turned out! :) 



 Don't you?

  12. Hi Janet, HUGE improvement! I've not been a big fan of burlap, my only memory working with burlap was strapping the underside of an old upholstered chair. Holding the burlap strap tight and doing the staple--scary stuff. I think I'll have to re-think after seeing your close-up of the basket.
