Wooden Basket Restyle using Mod Podge

I like little wooden baskets.  They can be used for just about anything and hold a variety of objects.  When I came across this one for 50 cents, I thought I could redesign and repurpose it.  The price was certainly right.  It appeared to have been an Easter basket.  It had blue rabbits painted on it’s side.

I had this nice red and black floral print I wanted to use.  I traced the bottom of the basket with a black marker onto the print.  I cut it out and glued it down to the inside of the basket with Mod Podge.  I then painted the entire basket with acrylic paint following the red and black color scheme.  Once dry I applied three more coats of Mod Podge.  Gotta pick more of these baskets up if I see them!  I love how this project turned out and I have so  many uses for them!!
