Here we go! Ready for a crop of CANDY CORN!
I bought a garden basket at the local Tractor Supply store. What a great find at only $3. I can think of so many ways to use it!
I added a dollop of yellow dye to hot water, flipped the basket over and sponged the dye solution right onto the top half of the basket. I let it drip back into the bowl.
I decided to dye the inside rim of the basket yellow as well. After the top part dried, I flipped the basket right-side-up and got a new bowl of hot water, added Tangerine dye and started on the bottom of the basket. What a quick and easy way to create some autumn fun!
I set the basket aside to dry, waited on yet another Kentucky summer storm to pass… and then finished the basket by painting the middle rim with a quick coat of Anita’s white craft paint. Can’t wait to fill the basket with autumn gourds and pumpkins!
