I am always looking for ways to make things look prettier in our home. Today I am sharing two decorative baskets I made with pom poms and felt.
I love having lots of different types of items to use as storage in my home. I use a vintage cooler to store our dog Sport’s food, a vintage automotive cabinet to store crafts, crocks to store cooking utensils and craft supplies, vintage wire locker baskets to store onions and potatoes, and vintage calf baskets to hold flower arranging supplies.
Today I am sharing two different ways I made some decorative storage baskets. I added pom poms to one and felt peonies to another. I love them both!
Pom Pom Basket
Isn’t this pom pom basket wonderful?
It wasn’t hard to make. I made my own pom poms which are fun and fast to make. I used a pom pom maker but you can also use a piece of cardboard.
I made the pom poms out of chenille yarn and I love how they look. Not only are they soft, but they have a bit of vintage flair to them.
I used a ruler to measure the placement of the pom poms and used straight pins for marking.
Felt Peony Basket
This project is a little more complex if you decide to make your own flowers.
You can buy some fabric peonies and attach them to the top rim of a basket. If you chose to do it this way the project will likely take about fifteen minutes!
I used my Cricut Machine to make the peony felt flowers. I love how they turned out. But they do have a lot of petals. haha.
