Finally…… spring will be here just before you know it so why not get ready early by using this wall basket filled with spring flowers to enhance your front door!! This piece is so cheerful and gay that you can’t help but feel happy every time you enter your lovely home!
A vintage double handled basket was my inspiration for the floral theme. It is in very good condition as the weavers are all accounted for without nay breaks to report. You can also set this versatile basket on any surface as well because of the flat bottom feature. It possesses a gentle crushed walnut patina that is warm and inviting. The basket exhibits a double cross hatch or “X” design element that rests just below the opposing handles on the front as well as the back.
An array of milky lilac, an assortment of buttercup yellow delights along with a variety of crimson, buttermilk and lemon hued tulips complete this floral spring design. Forest green leaves lending interesting shapes dot the landscape acting as a respite to nature’s vivid color palette.
I stuffed the bottom with plastic bags and then added a piece of burlap used as a cover. The flower stems were inserted into the burlap so they would keep their position. A couple of the front stems were placed inside the arrangement and are not secured.
Another idea is to place the basket on a window sill where it can be seen and appreciated as the rectangular narrow bottom form will allow this possibility. This basket can also be set on a table for the Easter holiday surrounded by birds’ nests, bunnies, birds and the like. Enjoy!
Basket stands 12 ½ tall including the handle, measures 11 ½” across the top opening (right to left) and measures 12” across the bottom.
