Upcycled Floral Swag Basket: Fridays at Home

Hi there, Friends! As I shared last week when I highlighted Secret Garden Herbs,  I have been selling mostly seeds during the pandemic. I use note cards to mail out my seed packets and recently purchased a mega pack online to avoid running out. You know that I'm all about pretty storage, so today I'm sharing how I  shopped my home and paired previously purchased finds: a clearance basket and a yard sale floral swag to create this lovely card caddy.

The card set I purchased contained over a 150 pieces so I did a little in-home hunting to find the best  way to store them. I remembered that I had a divided basket I had found on clearance--sure enough it was just the right size for the cards and envelopes.

To add a little something extra, I cut a piece from a garland I had scored at a yard sale to create a small floral swag on the front and sides of the basket.

I didn't need to glue it--I simply wound the wired stem through the ends of the basket.

Here's a closer peek at the cards I purchased from Amazon. {This particular pattern is currently out of stock, but I've included links for similar designs below.}

  1. I share your fondness for pink roses and really enjoyed the simplicity of this project. I love baskets for storage--don't know if it is because it is more natural than the numerous plastic and cardboard storage containers I also have or what! Great upcycle!
