I used the one that was a little bit more distressed
Very carefully took it apart...
Broke them in half at the bend and took a pair of scissors and rounded off one end....
Took a old hat box lid I started placing them around and securing them with hot glue....
Digging into my old costume jewelry I found a String of Pearls and an antique butterfly pen...
I hot glued the pearls in a circular motion on a piece of the extra basket then attaching the little butterfly and cutting around small piece of wood and dry brushing a little antique white paint on it and then secured with hot glue...
All finished and looking fabulous!

    Did you spray the basket with clorox first, or what would you recommend if I used baskets that have been outside in the elements?
