5 minute Craft Project

As you've probably realized, I'm not much of a crafter, but I saw this on the Pottery Barn web site and thought, "Oh, I can do that."


Garden Wine Bottle Basket


I got out my plain old wine basket from GW, webbing, which I bought last year and a glue gun. The thing that took the longest was waiting for my vintage glue gun to heat up.

 


Now don't laugh. :)
Ok, are you ready?
   
Don't blink.


                                               Ta Da! 
 I had everything already so the cost was $0.  Now that's my kind of project.

 Since I was in the "creative" mode, I decided to make a little vignette on the hutch.


I bought another lantern at Kohl's since they were still on sale. It never hurts to have two of something... does it?



I found the napkins at a consignment shop several months ago and the faux grapes were in a basket I bought at a yard sale.


Thanks for not laughing too much.

Looks great, Babs. I have some of that webbing, too.

This looks GREAT! I love how you pulled it all together, and those napkins are fabulous! I had to laugh at the glue gun comment. I have a vintage glue gun as well. I can shower and shampoo while waiting for mine to warm up. ;-)

Sarah said...

Babs, not laughing here. This is a darling idea, and your vignette looks perfect on the hutch. I'm going to track down a Kohls and see if I can find one of these lanterns. ;-)

Absolutely no laughing here either. Instead, I'm heading to my own basket storage to see what I can find to flatter you by imitation.

Loved it all, basket to vignette.

Love this Babs. I just might give this a try. I'll have to buy webbing but I have lots of baskets.

Great job...and I almost always buy 2 of everything. When things are symmetrical it just makes me happy! The webbing is awesome. Of course love that the stripes are red.

Diann said...

Yours looks beautiful! And I love your vignette feturing the basket better than PB!

Hi Babs...

Thank you for sharing your vineyard basket makeover with us...I love it! I often go to PB and browse...you really can get some great decorating ideas from there...your beautiful basket...case and point! I like that you added the grapes and the pretty napkins! Great idea!

Well dear lady, your new vineyard basket certainly is gorgeous in your new hutch vignette! It's beautiful and so summery looking! Thank you for sharing your pretties with us today, my friend!

Warmest summery wishes,
Chari

Adorable wine country vignette. I like your basket better than the prototype.

Patti said...

That webbing is so handy. We should do a group post on "things to do with webbing" I'm sure my hubby could contribute. I love your basket and your new vignette.

Emily said...

Your project turned out great, it looks like it came from Pottery Barn. I love the napkins with the grapes in the basket. Your vignette on your hutch is lovely, perfect for summer.
Hope your summer is going great Babs.

I love the webbing added to the basket. Now I see those same pics and half the time I don't think about doing it. This is really so pretty and your vignette on the hutch is wonderful. I love it all. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

JudyBug said...

Now that's my kind of craft project....Quick, free and snazzy!

Sue said...

Your wine basket looks wonderful, Babs!! Adding the upholstery webbing made it look so 'Frenchy.' I'm a big fan of upcycling, and your project fit the bill perfectly. Tying in the faux grapes with the same theme in the napkins was the clincher. :-)
