Welcome back to our Creative Craft hop, I wanted to thank Donna, Modern on Monticello for hosting this fun blog hop! There are 8 of us crafters this month to share step by step creative crafts with you, at the bottom of my page, I will share each participant’s link to their craft.

To view all of my creative crafts you can view it here CREATIVE CRAFT.

This isn’t going to be a quick project, but it is worth the time creating. I removed all the bugs and gave you an easier way to create this craft.

Dollar Tree Basket Stand Tutorial

Items needed:

  • 2 cake pans (same size)
  • 3 wire coat hangers
  • 2 Dollar Tree hula skirts
  • hot glue (lots of it)
  • paint of your choice
  • drill and drill bit
  • wire cutters

Prepare the 3 coat hangers

  1. Cut the hook off the hanger
  2. Straighten the wire
  3. Bend the wire into a pin shape

Prepare the supplies:

First pan:

  • Measure out two marks 2 inches apart
  • From one mark measure out 6 inches, mark and measure out from there 2 inches. Make 3 sets of dots.
  • Using a drill bit the size of your coat hanger wire and Drill holes to every mark.

Second pan:

  • Do the same as above but measure out 1 ½ inch marks and distance between the sets of marks 6 ¼ inches.

Remove the grass from the skirt’s waist band:

  • Cut one end of the twine from the skirt and slide off the grass. It will come apart with ease.

Paint the pieces

  • Spray paint the 3 pins and 2 pans with the color of your choice. I am using Krylon Satin Khaki.

Assemble the stand

  • Slip the pins into the drilled holes in the pan with the 3 sets of 2 inch drilled holes.
  • Measure the top of the pin to the lip of the pan 2 inches. To keep the pin from moving add drops of hot glue to top and bottom of the drill holes.
  • Wrap the grass around the loop of the pin, starting at one side gluing as you wrap to the other side. Do this to all three pins.
  • Wrap halfway down each pin under the pan.
  • Add the second pan to the pins. Measure from the bottom of the top pan to the top of the second pan 7 ¼ inches. Add a dab of hot glue to keep the pan in position.
  • Finish wrapping the middle part of the pin with grass.
  • Turn the tray upside down, measure up 15 ½ inches to the end of the pin, snip if longer.
  • Pinch the end of the pin together and add hot glue, hold until glue is cold. Wrap around the glue to make a padded foot, continue to wrap the bottom pins.
  • Add a dab of glue to the center of the pan (to each pan, top and bottom).
  • Take one strand of grass and fold in half, add the two ends to the glue and start twisting the two strands and roll the twisted strands in a circle. Keep adding strands until you cover the entire pan.
  • Remove the hot glue webs by using a heat gun or blow dryer.

Paint your stand

  • Paint the basket stand in the color of your choice. I went with a faux basket color, using cashew, hazelnut and burnt umber.

I know it was a lot of wrapping, but the outcome was worth it.
