I've been on a basket kick.
They are wonderful for organizing and placing on open shelves. My last trip to the thrift shop was in search for a few to use in the laundry cabinet. I found a couple; plus a bonus basket. One that I can decorate for Thanksgiving. So I stopped and picked up some paper Thanksgiving napkins too.
Of course it was with the intention of decoupage.
It's so easy. And it dries quickly.
I washed the basket with hot water and soap. While it was still wet, I cut up the parts of the napkins I wanted and decoupaged the pieces onto the basket. Just around the sides, leaving the top and bottom as wicker for bordering.
After it dried, I clear coated the entire basket; inside, outside and over the decoupage.
The shiny basket looked new; and better with a rustic appearance.
The clear coat took a bit longer to dry.
The basket is perfect for dinner rolls.
It's going be nice touch during Thanksgiving dinner.
I'm going to do another one for the Christmas dinner table.
