When I saw this basket for sale on a popular website I knew this was something I could easily make!
Grain Sack Stenciled Market Basket
This was a quick project using the perfect market basket I already had at home.
I loved this basket but I'm going to give it a quick one-two makeover and love it even more!
I started out with a grain sack stencil from Old Sign Stencils.
I placed the stencil onto the basket and used masking tape to hold it down.
Old Sign Stencils sells a variety of beautiful stencils including several widths and sizes of grain sack stencils.
Notice that I put a stripe of 1" wide masking tape across the top of the stencil, this is to leave a space for a monogram.
It is not too easy to stencil on wicker so use a very light amount of paint on your stencil brush and go back over your design a few times.
I hand painted my monogram with a paint stick, you can use monogrammed stencils or make your own with a vinyl stencil.
The look was just what I was hoping for and it couldn't have been easier!
