       When I saw this basket for sale on a popular website
I knew this was something I could easily make!

Grain Sack Stenciled Market Basket

This was a quick project using the perfect market basket I already had at home.

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.

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.
