I was co-hosting a baby shower recently and needed a small container to hold the game prizes. I wanted something that the new mother might be able to use later, so I looked around my
junk room studio and spied a leftover basket from last Easter. This is why it's so hard to throw/gift things away--they can always be upcycled into something else!
This was a simple upcycle. The handle was just glued in, so after a little wiggling it pulled right out.
Next came a coat of baby blue paint.
And finally, some beads to finish it off. I threaded the beads onto some string, then pulled the string through to the inside and tied it off.
For a fast project (completed the night before the shower, lol) I think it turned out super cute.
Thanks for looking, and until next time,
