Summer Party Basket

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here today with a sweet basket that can hold your outdoor paper goods in style for all your summer parties.

Begin by using the Delta Sander to sand the basket.  The angled head of the Delta Sander allows you to get into even the smallest of areas.

Paint the basket with FolkArt Milk Paint by Plaid in Bristol Green.  Once dry, lightly sand the basket again to bring out some of the wood grain.

Dry brush on a light layer of FolkArt Milk Paint by Plaid in Petticoat.  I love that this gave the basket a light distressed effect.

To finish cut pattern paper to fit the basket faces and adhere with Beacon Adhesive.    A floral pattern blended in nicely with the colors of the basket.  Once dry,  lightly ink the edges of the paper with distress ink.
Now, fill with your paper goods and enjoy.
