Simple Spring Infused Hanging Baskets

Hello, friends in bloggerland and beyond!  Spring will arrive quite soon, and there's nothing like a simple craft to add a bit of seasonal cheer!  Today, I am sharing a very easy Spring craft anyone can do and it is a no-brainier.  I hope you enjoy the post!

To make two hanging baskets, you will need:

Two very large baskets
Faux Spring floral foliage.  I love tulips for this!
Wired burlap ribbon
Hemp thread
Hot glue gun and sticks.

I began this project by carefully choosing what type of baskets I would use. I decided to use these beautifully rustic baskets which are flat on one side because they would look much more streamlined.

Fill the basket full of Spring foliage.  Trim or fold stems to fit.

On the top of each basket, I added a simple burlap bow and hot glued it into place.

A bit of hemp thread was woven through the rear of the basket for hanging.  Arrange and fluff flowers, hot glue any stubborn flowers that wish to remain open.

Voilà!  I said it was a no-brainer!
