Decoupage with fabric - How to decorate a wicker clothes basket
Are you tired of your boring wicker laundry basket? If you are in an uplifting mood and want to see pops of color everywhere in your home, then this is the perfect DIY project for the summer. Moreover, such baskets are usually light in color and if they get wet, grey spots on the surface can spoil their look. But don’t worry. You can easily renew your wicker clothes basket and transform it into a beautiful piece of art by decorating it with paint in bright colour and decoupage with fabric.
You need paint, acrylic or oil for wood products, and a piece of fabric with a cheerful bright pattern. Select paint colors that will blend and highlight the selected fabric for decoupage.
