DIY: Centerpiece

November 17, 2014

With Thanksgiving soon approaching - next week!? - we thought we’d take one of our favorite baskets and transform it into a beautiful centerpiece for the holiday table. Looking to add that special touch to your Thanksgiving table? Try these easy steps:

How-To Transform The Basket Lady's Wicker Gathering Basket into a beautiful Thanksgiving Centerpiece

1) Use our gathering basket to hold all of your fall foliage and other themed-decor. (*Note: we have two different sized baskets to fit every size table!)

2) Add a nice foundation to the basket. We used a gingham cloth napkin as our base.

3) Bring some natural items into the centerpiece. We created a warm feel with pinecones and geese feathers (you can find these at your local hobby/craft store).

4) Time to add a touch of fall color. Use dried or faux flowers to bring some life to the natural/earth-toned basket.

5) Lastly, add some gourds, squash or pumpkins for that final fall touch.
