Brush 2-3 coats of gesso onto basket. Let dry. Tip: If you don't have gesso, you can achieve the same look with white paint, but you'll need 4-5 coats.
Sew 4 ruffles—ungathered fabric should measure double the circumference of the basket so the ruffle will be the correct size when the fabric is gathered. Tip: Check out our "How to Make a Ruffle" video if needed.
Adhere 3 ruffles to basket with fabric adhesive.
Using photo as a guide, adhere top edge of ruffle below rim of basket. Fold ruffle over, and apply a line of adhesive along seam.
Adhere elastic trim to rim with fabric adhesive, and then add rosette trim as shown.
