Let's Have a Picnic

 Today we are going to take a boring old picnic basket ( I can't resist them when I see them at thrift stores and garage sales) and make it special.

First I gave it a coat of lake blue spray paint... looking better already!
After the basket has dried I go through my pile of October Afternoon paper scraps.  I throw in a couple vintage images in too... do you spy the umbrella?
I just keep adding images, cutting them to fit.  When it is all arranged I apply a couple coats of mod podge.
It is as easy as that... this is coming with me to knitting today.  Check back tomorrow and see my fun project for Thrifty Thursday... here is a hint...
