Loved this basket but I'm going to give it a quick one-two makeover and love it even more! 

I started out with a grain sack stencil from Old Sign Stencils. (affiliate link) 

I placed the stencil onto the basket and used masking tape to hold it down. 

Old Sign Stencils sells a variety of beautiful stencils including several widths and sizes of grain sack stencils.

Notice that I put a stripe of 1" wide masking tape across the top of the stencil, this is to leave a space for a monogram.

It is not too easy to stencil on wicker so use a very light amount of paint on your stencil brush and go back over your design a few times.

I hand painted my monogram with a paint stick, you can use monogrammed stencils or make your own with a vinyl stencil.
