A Tisket, A Tasket....Spring Flowers in a Basket

Hello, dear friends!  Thank you for taking the time to stop by! has finally happened!  On a recent excursion to my two of my fave home improvement haunts, Lowe's and Home Depot, I found that they have brought out the perennials and last!  I love fresh flowers, and even strolling through those aisles which are rich with the aroma of honeysuckle and jasmine brings me joy.  This post is a simple yet lovely way to display Spring florals....I hope you enjoy.

You will need:

A small basket
White paint
Spring blooms, real or faux

I began by whitewashing a simple inexpensive Easter basket.

Because the basket will be full, it was not necessary to paint the inside.  I also used a very gentle is ok to allow some of the basket to show through, to me it gives the basket a charming weathered appearance.

Remove the handle. 

If fresh florals are not available to you in your neck of the woods or you want to reuse this year after year:

Use a glue gun to bead glue onto the rim of your basket. Add greenery. 

Once the entire rim of the basket is covered in foliage, add your florals. Nothing says Spring to me like pastel colored blooms, and here I've used faux peonies. 

If fabulously fresh is your preference, place a small flower arranging foam block into the basket.

 Add blooms.  Aren't these gorgeous!!?

I like the idea of adding florals at an angle for a basket arrangement, so it appears as though the flowers are "spilling" out of the sides of the basket.
