Vintage Bushel Basket Wreath


At a recent flea market, we picked up a bunch of old bushel basket lids.  Julie had the brilliant idea of making a Fall wreath out of them....mom had the creativeness to make it happen!  This is what she came up with.  I love it!!!

I love the old labels on the lids.


If you look at the labels closely, it says these baskets are from 1958 and are from Delavan, Wisconsin.  It's always fun to know a little history.



Here's what they started out as.  We have a bunch of these fabulous old baskets w/lids for sale at the shop.  They are so great for decorating in the fall.

If you're interested in one of these wonderful Fall wreaths, stop by the shop this weekend!  We are open Thursday through Saturday 10:00-3:00.  We have lots of vintage Fall finds to get you ready for the season!
