Hanging Flower Basket
The basket had 2 locks for its lid, one in front and one in back. But as it had no lid, there was no point keeping the locks, so I started taking them off without damaging the basket.
Once the locks were removed, I taped the arm strap and gave the basket 2 coats of Folkart Chalk Paint in White Adirondack color. Then I set the basket aside for the paint to dry.
Next, I hot glued 2 Dollar Store foams together. I took 14 Dollar Store fall flower picks and started arranging the flowers as randomly as possible. Once finished with the flower arrangement, I placed the foams into the basket and my second project was also complete.
So what do you think? Both projects were pretty easy, right? As mid-August will be quite hectic due to the new deck construction, I need all the “easy” I can get nowadays. So I will have more of these quick and easy fall projects this year. 😉
As usual, some close-up pictures for you…
Now, you may ask why I named the post “Hanging Flower Basket” while there are no pictures of it hanging. Well, the plan is to hang this basket on the front door this fall. I’m afraid that if I hung it out there now, the neighbors would think I was a nutter, and Greg would complain that I’m stealing his summer, LOL!
I hope you liked both of my fall projects today. If you like simple and inexpensive craft projects like these, then try out these super cute sisal twine pumpkins. Apart from being so easy, they also cost less than 50 cents each, so it is a perfect Fall craft project all around 😉
