Dollar Find Friday! (Friendship Seed Basket)

Sorry today's post is so late! I procrastinated (what's new??) a little on finishing my project for today. But here it is!

Friendship Seed Basket

Wooden basket ($1 at Michael's)
Filler (I think that this was $1 at walmart)
Prima flowers
Acrylic paint
Paint brush
Seed packets (you can find the template for this HERE)

Step 1- Paint wooden basket with acrylic paint

Step 2 (optional)- Ink edges of basket. I like to do this because I think that it adds a little depth.

Step 3-
Decorate with ribbon and prima flowers. I used brads in the middle of my flowers and then glued rhinestones on top of the brads.

Finished project! I made a card to go with this project so it could be used as a gift basket.

So what do you think?

Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
