Spring Garden Basket

Just a little update.  My father in-law went back to his hometown.  Grandma will be joining him this weekend.  It is bitter sweet.  I will miss her so much as we have become close friends.  However, I will be able to craft and spend a little more time on my blog.  So, to kick things off, here is the flower arrangement I came up with for my front door.  I love the burlap wreath I made last year, but, it is time for a change.  






This was my burlap wreath.  To change it up, I would just add little picks of the season.  Funny, I never have taken pictures - hummmmm.




This was the basket.  I saved it from the trash pile.  Back in the day, I had pretty blue leather in my den.  The leather wore out and the basket went into the garage.  







I cleaned it up, and sprayed a little primer first.





I tried white paint, but, I really didn't like it.





I shot a little green and liked it a little better.






I put a floral block in the bottom of the basket and stuck a few spring floral picks in it.  I bought all my yellow garden tools at the Dollar Store and attached them with my glue gun. 





















Happy Spring.
