What? You’ve been thinking about fall, too? A few days ago, we experienced cooler weather and I couldn’t help looking at some magazines and on Pinterest for some ideas for how to decorate for fall. And those little creative wheels are turning now and a few of my displays will contain some painted apple baskets.
This past spring I painted some smaller baskets, lined them with white napkins, and used them to serve food at a party. So, as you can see, I’m really liking the combination of the white baskets with the burlap trim.
I had to paint the basket indoors because it’s been raining all week. I started by painting the bottoms first. I don’t know why I paint the bottoms because no one is going to see them!
After the baskets dried, the rain stopped and the sun came out long enough for me to put this little outdoor vignette together. I plopped a croton into the basket and tied a little open weave burlap around the top.
I enjoyed bringing this little idea to you today, and if you’d like to see where the rest of my apple baskets end up, I’d love it if you’d follow me at Cottage at the Crossroads, Facebook, or Pinterest.
