Ok, hearts are nice, but designing baskets and wreaths sometimes can be a trick. I will show you mine, if you show me yours..

What to do with these? I hope someone has a sample of what they have done because I am at a loss in imagination..

Heres the base baskets...

My bud, bigred suggested to go with the "woodsie" look, so I pulled out a bunch of dry florals.. but I am still not quite getting a picture for creativity here... ~help~!

Heres my stash of drieds... there is a mushroom fungus, an apple bunck and lots of fillers. Do I dare combine some silks or what? What about a bow?

Suggestions please! Or better still, show me yours!

Should I put the two baskets inserted like above or do two seperate wall hangings?

Hi Blossom, Love your heart baskets!
I had a look in my basket stash but couldn't find a wicker heart shaped one.

Well, I'm not one to let things like that put me off, so I used up my Jasmine prunings and tried to make one!
Don't laugh, it is my first attempt!!!!
