Supplies you’ll need to make your own Patriotic Floral Basket:
- Star Picks
- Barn Red Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Bunker Hill Blue Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Paint Brush
- Hanging Willow Basket
- Red Tulips
- Eucalyptus Bush
- Unbridled Blooms Floral Bush
- Small American Flag
I started this project by painting a set of 3 wooden star picks from Twin Knobs Woodworks. You can get them HERE.
I used the colors Barn Red, Fluff and Bunker Hill Blue from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint to create the red, white and blue theme I was going for.
Use a small paint brush to paint each start pick.
While the picks dry, gather your basket and the florals you’re going to use.
I used faux Red Tulips, Eucalyptus Bush and Unbridled Blooms. You can shop the basket and florals HERE. You can also use any greenery you have on hand.
I used the whole bunch of each floral set. I simply tucked it down in the basket and fluffed them a bit.
Once the florals were in place, I tucked in the painted star picks and added a small American Flag from the Dollar Store to make it extra festive.
To pull everything together, I added ribbon. I choose a ribbon that would allow me to pop out our picks and flag and keep it up until I change it out for the fall. You could also use patriotic ribbon if you’d like, just be sure to tie it on with a simple knot so it can be removed easily.
This DIY offers so much versatility. All I did here was simply remove the picks, popped in a fall color floral stem bundle and changed out the ribbon. VOILA! You could also add a cute pumpkin pick or leaf for some extra pizazz.
