Sandy's StoryThis one was for a bridal shower .I also wrap these in cellophane and tie it with a big ribbon bow.
I will try to make one tomorrow so I can take step by step pictures.
roll chicken wire
gluegun & glue sticks
ribbons, flowers, bows, grapes
can clear spray adhesive
white glitter dust (for optional sparkle)
1straighten chicken wire out, measure for the size you would like, cut wire .
2scrunch wire at both ends and bring ends together and twist to join together,(you can use extra wire to help secure this)
3check for center of bottom front , pinch to mark bottom point of heart. fold and scrunch into heart shape.
4At bottom of basket weave a small dowel through chicken wire from front to back on both sides, (this is for support)
5spray paint basket, and let paint dry.spray with adhesive and sprinkle with glitter dust.using your glue gun decorate with foilage and flowers and ribbons and bows, basically anything you like. for mothers day I like flowers and butterflies, birds and strings of pearls , anything works, whatever is pretty to you.
6I do these baskets for Christmas, Mothers day, Easter, weddings, bridal showers , baby showers,house warming gifts, whatever you would like, just depends on how you decorate it, and what you put in the basket.
7In this one I put 2 bottles of wine , a swan candle holder with a candle, and a couple of wine glasses, a card, and small box of chocalates.
