basket full o' produce

My neighbor stopped by to see my garden and told me that I should gather my produce in a basket on my arm since that is how they do it in England!  I liked that idea and it has made transporting the veggies that much easier.  Of course, I had to make it cute, so after buying the basket for 40% off at Hobby Lobby, I

cut a piece of cardstock into a rectangle and rolled some chalkboard paint from walmart onto it. (it's easier if you are making chalkboards at the same time.  However, you can just open up the paint can and dip a paint brush into it-you don't need much paint).  After it dries, punch two holes with a paper punch on each end tie some ribbon through the holes to the basket.  Then write on the tag with chalk.

By the way, I promise a chalkboard tutorial will be coming soon!

  1. Don 't you just love gardens? It's our first real garden this year in our new house and I can't believe how much we've been eating out of it...corn, potatoes, zucchini, peas, beans,carrots, lettuce,raspberries...and the pumpkins and squash look great despite the crazy weather. Ah. I need to make a cute basket like that. Makes eating more fun.
