Welcome Guest Basket

I love having guests stay in our home. I love the food, conversations, games and laughter. We are fortunate to have family and friends stop by and stay on a fairly regular basis. For years I’ve told myself I’m going to get organized and make a “guest” box with everything I need for overnight guests. Towels, shampoo and conditioner,  toothbrushes, snacks, etc.

Never happened.

Until now, thanks to Jenn Allyson at The Project Girl for her post on guest baskets. The free ”Welcome” printable made it easy.

My original idea involved a clear plastic box from Target. BORING! Jenn’s basket inspired me to do better. I found my baskets at TJ Max. I love burlap and I had some pearls left over from my daughter’s wedding.

I remembered a  wreath I had pinned on Pinterest with large burlap flowers. I grabbed my glue gun and got started.

The flowers were easy to make and I love the pearl in the center. Some people may not think that burlap and pearls go together, my basket should prove them wrong.

This project was quick and easy with great results. If I can make a basket look this good, anyone can.

The first basket went so well that I made a second one for when we have multiple families come stay with us.

Now I look organized and crafty at the same time. I must say that…….

This Pin ROCKS!
