I initially set out to find a small tray or basket to decorate my porch for the 4th of July but everything I found was large and bulky. Since I have a very small table on my porch and I usually try to find decorations that won’t take up our entire table.

So I decided to make my own basket. I picked up all of the supplies to make this basket from Dollar Tree and I love how it came out.

My kids painted tin cans red, white, and blue to make planters and we made DIY Cork Sailboats to add to the basket. Everything right down to the basket was handmade!

This little basket came out so cute so and it’s a perfect size. The basket took just to make. Check out the list of supplies and how-tos below.

Supplies

  • A round, plastic laundry basket (mine is from Dollar Tree)
  • Ribbon (I used Dollar Tree satin and wire burlap ribbon)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Foam glitter stars or other decoration (optional)
