Cheap and Easy Thanksgiving Bread Basket

Cheap & Easy Thanksgiving Bread Basket


Basket from the Dollar Tree
Tamale Corn Husks from the Grocery Store
Hot Glue and Gun
Newspaper Rubber Band
Start by placing the rubber band around the top of the basket.

Dot hot glue up and down a small area of the basket. Place a corn husk under the rubber band, in the area you placed the hot glue, and press.

 Move to the space, right beside that corn husk, and repeat process. Be sure to dot the edge of the last corn husk, with a bit of glue, before overlapping husk. Your rubber band will help keep husks in place while the glue dries.
You will have to keep pulling your rubber band up, as you glue, to keep it towards the top of the basket.
Once your basket is completely wrapped with husk, allow to dry before you begin to place ribbons and twine.
Place a dot of hot glue on the corn husk and place your ribbon on it. Allow to dry, then tie ribbon around basket. Do the same for the twine. I chose to wrap the twine around the basket several times to give it a rustic feel. If you do the same, you will have to push the gun beneath the layers of twine and glue the twine in place.
Take a pair of scissors and cut off any excess husk, from the bottom of the basket, to allow it to sit level.
 I'm going to drape the inside of mine with a cloth napkin before using.
Now, its ready to add a festive touch to your Thanksgiving table.
