Well, this is probably easier in the warmer weather, but in keeping with giving baskets as wedding gifts….last year I found a beautiful basket with wine decanters on the back for $1.00 at a yard sale. I bought 2 yds of material at Wal-mart for $4.00 and made napkins and a liner. I had material left over. Then I filled the basket with crackers, pre-packaged cheese and meats, sparkling cider, and finally topped it off with a bag of hugs and a bag of kisses.
Even though the basket was a little rough, I fixed it up, cleaned it up, and sprayed it with a semi gloss finish I already had. I probably spent about $18, so I’m over, but the gift couldn’t be mroe appreciated.
