I was wandering about Hobby Lobby as I do a few times a week and I had an idea pop into my head. Often times my ideas are a bust (haha) but wanted to try it anyway. So in this post I will show you how to create an inexpensive newborn prop.
Basket – Hobby Lobby 50% off : $10.00
Greenery – Hobby Lobby 50% off: $9.00
Floral wire – $2.99
Wire cutters (Shown are scissors but I was silly to think that would cut wire.)
You will want to purchase a basket that you can easily attach the floral wire to. I guess you could always super glue it but I wanted something that I could remove and reuse or change out the greenery so I went the wire route.
Next, I disassembled the greenery and began attaching it to the basket using the wire. Each row you will want to do in the opposite direction of the last row so your greenery fills in nicely on the basket. Make sure the wire is pressed firmly to the inside of the basket so it’s not poking out.
This is my end result. The project took me a total of 30 minutes from start to finish. I picked up a strand of holiday berries and can’t wait to play with those too!!
Enjoy, have fun and get creative.
