Believe it or not this beautiful farmhouse style willow basket has had several lives already. 

The first one was well before the thrift store where I found it.

I found several great farmhouse baskets a while back at the thrift store that were the perfect candidates for a dipped paint technique.

I repurposed this basket just recently and made a beautiful 
Winter Basket for the Front Door



Today, now that the winter is winding down, I'm giving this basket another new life for the Spring. 

I began by removing the handle and painting the basket with a stain that contains poly

While the stain was drying I cut a piece of burlap from a roll and frayed the edges.

I also found a metal tag and added puffy sticker numbers to the tag.

I coated the tag with silver Rub and Buff to make it all the same color. 

When the basket was dry I used hot glue to attach the burlap and tag to the basket.

All that was left was to fill the basket with beautiful faux flowers. 

I bought these at Hobby Lobby but if you look at the bottom of this post I will give you other suggestions using my Amazon links.

It's perfect to hang on the wall or stand on a shelf.
