I adore Window Baskets! But, I don't adore having to keep the plant materials alive & fresh... So The Hubby & I came up with this semi-permanent fix... What say you, Hometalk peeps?
Time: 1 Hours Difficulty: Easy
I promise it DID look much better earlier in the season, but as always, plant materials wither, no matter how much water & attention you give them!
We went ISO awesome fabric ~ we knew it needed to be heavy to maintain it's shape, so we chose upholstery fabric. We measured, then cut with room for excess & laid it inside the window basket...
Now to keep it in place. We choose tie wraps ~ easy, sturdy & fairly cheap when bought in bulk. We used a utility knife it poke a small hole in the fabric, then inserted the tie wrap...
One last trim around the edges for a neatly finished look. We stuffed the window baskets with the old coconut liners to help the fabric keep the shape of the window basket.
Hubby added a shelf in each one so that we had a flat, stable surface for our decals to sit upon... We choose bird houses, candle holders & yard art of all kinds for ours, but the sky is the limit! I intend to Christmas~ize them when the time comes, but the decor could be changed to compliment each & every season, for those so inclined!
