DIY Personalized Casserole Dish Basket

A while back I found a great thrift store basket with handles! 
I knew right away what I was going to do with it.

This is a very easy project you can get finished in no time! 

The first thing I did was to give the basket a quick coat of paint with a white spray paint.

The design I used was downloaded from the Graphics Fairy.

I printed the image in reverse, Mod Podged it face down onto the wooden bottom of the basket, then rubbed off the paper and waxed over the top.

I had no idea when I found it in the thrift store but it fits my Pyrex casserole dish perfectly!

Wouldn't it be great with a personalized design. 

It would make a great gift!

Now when the casserole is finished there is a beautiful bee design underneath!

  6. I hate when you do a project that I like, that I can do, and one I have what is needed. Cause then I have to add it to my list. And I have that same basket for a 9x13 pan.

  11. I can tell you why this basket fits you casserole dish. It originally came as a set with a casserole dish inside it. I know this because I own it. It was a gift to me about 20 years ago. I still have it and it is perfect for holding a hot casserole dish.
