Baskets are often used for storage and arrangement, they give a cozy rustic feel and automatically make the room cooler. They are especially good for fall and winter when we are striving for warmth. That's why we're going to inspire you today with fantastic winter basket arrangements that will give your room a festive feel. Let's start!
Bushels / metal baskets
A bushel basket will certainly give your room an even more rustic touch and look more unusual than just a basket. Paint it red, put pine cones, evergreens and ornaments in it, and voila - a beautiful arrangement is ready! Metal baskets are welcome too, and I would recommend making the arrangements simpler and more natural - firewood, pine cones, and logs with blankets are enough to create a cute look. Both metal and bushel baskets can be decorated in a cool way outdoors.
Usual baskets provide a suitable base for winter and vacation arrangements of various kinds. You can fill them with evergreen plants, pine cones, berries, ornaments, foliage and greenery, and much more. Add plaid ribbons and bell bells to give your basket a vacation look, and you're done! Such pieces can be door decorations, centerpieces, porch and entrance decorations, enjoy your creations.
