Hey there..Today, I am sharing my re-purposed vintage picnic basket
Last summer I dressed up this old vintage basket with garden seed packets and twine as you can see.
Took a beating though,
So this year, I cleaned her up,
and thought of something else cute to do.
The top was all water damaged
Nothing a little fabric and mod podge can’t fix
Now how about a picnic?
I have been wanting to have a picnic for a while now.
Finally the weather is ready to cooperate.
Of course budget friendly, all from the Dollar tree.
You remember my
diy gingham utensil holders too..
they came in handy.
This was the very last of the gingham fabric, so I lined the picnic basket with it as well.
That too was in rough shape.
So there you have my dollar tree picnic
with my repurposed picnic basket.
It’s a win win!
Thanks for stopping over today.
Always enjoy your visits and your sweet comments.
Oops forgot to show you the top and how nice it looks now.
