I didn’t make the pillow or the basket, but once purchased, I changed them greatly. Here are my supplies:
The basket, ribbon, flower, and bag of little rosettes are from Michaels. The pillow was from party city.
I took all the white flowers off the basket, since I wanted some ‘color’ instead. They were glued on, so it left a mark. it’s ok; the little flowers were replacing the white. I then glues the rosettes where the white had been.
I knew I wanted to put some ribbon on the handle, but I couldn’t decide on red, black, or both. I decided to do the pillow and then finish the basket. I took the white ribbon completely off the pillow, simply by cutting it. I then wrapped the red ribbon around and hot glued it in the center on the front. Then I glued a pice of black ribbon to the center, to tie the rings to. Next, I took the flower off the stem and glued it [piece by piece] to the front. Once it was on, I added a gem stone [previously purchased in a pack from Michaels] to the center of the flower. Ta da!
Now that the pillow was done, I decided I wanted both ribbons on the basket. I tied 4 bows and glued them to the handle. Sorry, i can’t get it to rotate.
Then, since the pillow had a gem, I decied to put a little sparkle on the basket too. I dug around and found some gems for nails. They weren’t sticky or anything, just tiny rhinestones. I then hotglued one to the center of each flower.
And there you have it! they’re both done and ready to go!
