I have gotten some bushel baskets and trying to figure out what to do with them? Going to craft show in April and owuld like to make something to out of them to sale! Thanks
I don't have many ideas but have some hanging in my garage on the paneling! People always want to buy them at my yard sales, they aren't for sale! You might paint a few in fun colors & tell people they are great for storing basketballs,beach balls,tennis balls & rackets, rags,could even put them sideways & store boots & winter items in entry. Depends on how heavy they are also how much weight they could take. Jan
I think bushel baskets look like an autumn item. I love to find them and then add a pot of mums for diplay on the porch. I would leave them just natural, but if you have a bunch I think painting them fun colors may sell better for the spring craft sale.
bushel baskets make great lamp shades. You can paint a design on them, stain them or just leave them as they are. I have seen hanging lamps and table lamps with BB as shades. If you have a tall freestanding lamp that would work also.
Since you are doing a spring craft show - maybe you could decorate some in an easter basket theme. Spring flowers, bunnies, eggs, etc.
I think some people like to 'plant' in them ... if you could line them w/plastic somehow ...great for storing bulbs (that's what I use them for) ... but could be painted on ...a cute garden saying! Jeanne S.
