Paint the basket

First choose a wicker basket and the colour you want to paint it. Then use a thick brush to paint the entire exterior. Paint the inside as well, but it doesn’t need to be perfect as it will be mostly out of sight.

Cover the handle with a ribbon

To personalise the handle of your basket, cover it with a ribbon that you like, preferably in the same colour that you painted the rest. Use a hot glue to attach the ribbon, or any other glue that works on this type of surface.

Start gluing at one side of the handle and wrap it around to cover the handle entirely. Repeat with the other handle.

We tied the two handles together with a piece of ribbon to close the basket to use as a decoration, putting flowers or anything else inside.
