Autumn Wheat Basket


How about a quick and easy project to liven up your front porch or inside by your other autumn decor…



I just found a tall wicker basket. (And before buying one….look at the thrift store. Or, even your garage/attic. Who knows where you might find the perfect basket.)


And then I spray painted it dark brown. (Let it dry completely and spray with a clear coating/sealant. Allow to dry again.)


And then I tied some ribbon around the basket. And put some tall wheat stalks inside. Don’t have any wheat stocks laying around?!?! :) Check out your local craft store for any sort of tall replacement in the floral department. There are all sorts of funky/fallish/tall items to put in your basket. (I have no clue what any of them are called…..just browse around a while.)


And there, nice and autumn-ish.

    I love this! I was just at my local grocery store and saw some wheat. Picked it up, but it down because I had no idea what to do with it.
    But now I know!

    Very nice! I love how simple and elegant it is! I have so many yellowish baskets that could benefit from some spray paint right about now!
