Sharing is caring!

I’m working on switching out from our fall decor to Christmas and this Painted Christmas Decor Basket was the perfect size to create a Christmas vignette.

Let’s start with this picnic basket that I picked up at the thrift store…

A super cute picnic basket that was in pretty good shape.

I started by dry brushing the basket with some white chalky paint.  I wanted to brighten it up a bit before I filled it with Christmas goodness.

I placed my mini Christmas tree in first.  It’s covered with two different wood slice ornaments.

I filled a little lantern with some red and gold bulbs.

The I filled the rest of the picnic basket with red and gold bulbs and some pinecones.

Then i just layered a plaid hand towel and a soft white scarf over the back of the basket.

Super easy, just using items I had to create a welcoming Christmas vignette.
