berry cheep project
Happy Spring! Or as we say in New England, "Did you check the forecast?" Popsicles outside one day, hot cocoa indoors the next. Never mind the weather, I'm ready to make some sunny treasures.
Never one to discount the possibilities held in a container, I saved a few plastic berry bins from last year.
I gathered a bunch of supplies like decals, ribbon, and flowers and started tinkering . . .
Vents throughout the bins lend themselves to weaving ribbon in and out.
Guess where this sweet oilcloth-type material in polka dots and gingham comes from? (Betty knows!)
A reusable shopping bag from TJ Maxx! The water-resistant fabric is especially useful if you plan to line your berry bins and use them to present foodie gifts.
Sweet mini holders for all kinds of spring treats and occasions.
Best of all, this project is very cheep!
