Well, we've finally had our first real snow of the season out here in the midwest. Boy, was it weird to have a relatively snowless winter. So weird that I found myself actually wishing for a snowstorm! That wish came true and now it's a veritable winter wonderland. And only 21 days until spring. Go figure.
That being said, I guess it's about time I shared with you one of my Christmas gifts from Mr. CBD. It's a willow bottle basket and I absolutely love it.
But of course I couldn't just leave well enough alone, now could I? I had some burlap left over from a previous project and I literally heard it calling to me. Has that ever happened to you? Anyway, after I pulled it out I saw that it was already the perfect size to fit right around my basket. But it just seemed a bit too plain, you know? So I added a little French-inspired sumpin' sumpin'. And there you have it.
I thought it looked especially good sitting between my shabby chic stamped candles. You can find my tutorial for those HERE.
It was so simple to do. I just whipped out my Martha Stewart stencils and stencil brushes and got to work.

They both came from Michael's. As did the black acrylic paint.
I really love how it turned out.
I know you usually see these types of bottle carriers made out of metal and not wood. But I'm liking mine just fine.
How about you?
Hope you're all safe and warm, wherever you are.
