The sky is the limit on how you can decorate these. I added some appliques I had on hand and also a butterfly to one of my baskets and tied a name tag onto the other with raffia.

      I did. That took some patience! I actually tried to do a woven one with ribbon but just couldn’t get the hang of it. So I settled for just cutting them. You always have the cutest things on your site.
