home: made [ dipped baskets ]

We have come to see quite a lot of paint dipped items for the home over the last year or two. But this trend seems to be staying and where it has been really popular on furniture; chair and stool legs aswell as ceramics and vases, the big look carrying on through Summer into Autumn is dipped baskets.

This simple diy project uses very little extras on top of the basket itself. Pick the size and shape, decide on a paint colour – this could be a bright vibrant shade or classic white, also consider metalic shades – and grab a tray or large bowl to drop the basket into. [ another option is to use dye instead of paint ]

We have some tutorials below for you to follow.
