So I saw this picture of their flower girl’s basket and thought I absolutely had to have these.
Oh and FYI the best time to get baskets are around and probably better deals after Easter. I got my basket in March and it was 1/2 off at Michael’s.
Sheer Colored Ribbon (I used three colors)
One straight Pin (used for holding the ribbon in place)
step 1: Tie the ribbon to the bottom of the handle on the basket.
step 2: Wrap the ribbon around the handle, so that all the colors show. Use the stright pin to hold the ribbon in place. The ribbon kept sliding and I would have to go back and fix what I had already wrapped.
step 3: Once you’ve covered the handle completely, tie another knot around the other side of the bottom of the handle.
step 4: Measure to desired length & cut 2 long pieces of each color (for the bow)
step 5: Wrap the ribbon around the handle and tie a bow.
step 6 (optional): Once the bow is tied, you can spread the ribbons, so that all the colors are shown.
