A LITTLE WOOD AND A LITTLE WIRE

Look what you can make with a little of this -
cedar fence dog-eared picket $2.15
and a little of that:
YARDGUARD welded wire fencing (3' x 50' roll)  $32.00
BOTH FROM HOME DEPOT
Not long ago I had a few friends over for a little basket making.  They just needed to bring their own wire cutters - I supplied the wire fencing from my endless roll and the cedar picket leftover from another project.  I've had this roll for years and have made lots of projects out of it.  I thought this would take care of the rest of it but I STILL have some leftover! 

Everyone made their own basket and then stenciled a small wooden sign that was wired on the front.  So today's post is just some pictures of the process.  It was a beautiful summer day and so fun to spend time with great friends.   You can find the basket instructions here.  








Forgot to mention - everyone also brought a delicious salad and we ended our morning with a salad buffet on the patio.  It was such a beautiful summer morning made even better by spending it with great friends AND the fact that everyone went home with a SUCCESSFUL project!  

Next time . . . power tools!
