Mod Podged Spring Basket Makeover


DCWV Primrose Stack Easter Basket

Sometimes you save something without a specific plan in mind for it but because you know based on the design that it’s a perfect candidate for a makeover. At least that’s the way my brain works and was the case with this project. Mr. Chocolate gave this to me a few years ago for Easter ( filled with chocolate of course) but ever getting it I’ve wanted to play with the basket itself because it was perfect for altering.

Sees Basket Makeover

The shape and surface of this basket made it really easy to alter. I chose the Primrose Stack from DCWV which is a gorgeous combination of Spring designs and color.

The papers are gorgeously patterned so there was no need to really stamp or alter them. I used a couple of the fully patterned sheets and one sheet with borders for the basket. Using the basket as a tracing template, I cut pieces to cover each side and then coordinated with pieces from the border sheet.  I used Mod Podge to apply the papers to the basket and then painted the sides and handle with white craft paint.

Unlike the rest of the country , we’ve had a mild Winter and early Spring and I’ve been picking up fallen twigs and branches while out on walks. I grabbed a handful of these and combined them with rolled roses and leaves made from the paper scraps to decorate each side of the basket.

I haven’t quite decided what I’m putting in my basket yet but I like looking at it just on its own.
