This is the basket I'm going to decorate. Get a basket with holes. It's easier to work with. Lay it with tissue.
Top view of the handle. The tissue helps to avoid things from falling out (if any). Preferably, put any candy in organza bags. This is an open concept basket :)
(Click to zoom) Tassel decorative item, fake cherry blossom & peony, twisty tie and ribbon. Get the fake cherry blossom from the stalk and cut out a few branch.
Take the peony flower and hook the decorative tassel on it and put it like this.
Use a twisty tie to secure them. Cover your tracks with a large ribbon and make a double bow. This one is loosely done to show you how it's done.
For the handle, take some plastic cherry blossoms and secure them on using a twisty tie. Try to space the flowers out.
This is what you'll get in the end. Easy peasy :)
I had to do many for a Chinese New Year charity sale. They are usually sold out very quickly. We fill it with biscuits, tea & candy. See above, the stalks of plastic flowers.
This was the final sea of beautiful baskets that we got. They will be sold and the proceeds are going to charity. Hope this inspires some ideas!
