I got to shop their sale the day before as they were setting up, and I scored this adorable door basket for only $2.oo! Even with just the herbs the basket looked just adorable in it’s simplicity, so I will probably use that design for early spring and summer next year.
For the Fourth of July I wanted to add some red, white and blue flowers. I used these same flowers last year in an ironstone pitcher for the centerpiece in my Stars and Stripes Forever Patriotic Tablescape.
When I was rummaging through my patriotic craft tote I also found a rusty primitive star spray that matched the colors and patina of the basket perfectly. Last year I had used the stars to add extra patriotic flair to a simple arrangment of faux ivy and American flags tucked in an old world style vase.
If you look closely you can see that I folded up the ends of the ticking stripe ribbon instead of cutting off the excess so I wouldn’t waste any of it. I found this Stars & Stripes Ribbonon Amazon that has a similar look to the bow I made.
I just love to make simple crafts combining thrifted finds and things I already have. Hot glue gun or safety pipn to attach bow to basket Faux red, white and blue flowers (Altertnatively you could simply use small American flags on dowel rods for patriotic color) Rustic stars, pinwheels, bottle rockets, sparklers or any other fun patriotic accents
