The $8 Pom Pom Picnic Basket DIY

Happy 4th of July Eve!  What are your plans for the week, friends? Is Tuesday just about the strangest day of the week ever for a holiday to fall on or is it just me?  I’m curious if people are taking time off or if it’s back to the office after fireworks tomorrow night. Parker is out of school all of this week and while we are driving back from the lake tonight to spend the Fourth in town, we are contemplating a last minute day trip to either Fredricksburg or San Antonio later this week.  (Anyone have a favorite between those two?)  Regardless of your plans, I hope you find time to get outside, away from your inbox, and enjoy some time and fresh air with family or friends. Should these plans include a picnic, don’t fret that you don’t own world’s fanciest picnic basket.  This $8 picnic basket DIY version is the epitome of effortless which is what summer should be anyways, right?!  Happy holiday-ing tomorrow, friends!  Keep reading for the full tutorial.

$8 Pom Pom Picnic Basket DIY

What You’ll Need:

  • A basket like this one (available in almost all craft stores, so don’t feel like you need to order online.)
  • pom poms (scissors, yarn, and string– tutorial here)
  • hot glue gun and glue for adhering pom poms to the basket

This one is pretty self-explanatory.  Once you’ve created your pom poms in the colors of your choosing, just glue them on where ever you like.  It would be cute going across the handle, too, or you could literally cover the entire basket if your more of a go-big-or-go-home kind of gal.  (Just promise us you’ll fill it up with something really yummy!)
