Tuck in a simple fabric liner

I used a yard of fabric and machine stitched the edges, then folded it to fit inside

If you use a large piece of fabric, you can use your liner for a tablecloth too

    Jenna, As a fellow picnicker, I love the pretty make over you gave your basket! I love the sweet vintage looking cloth or placemat she’s sitting on too! I’ll see you tomorrow and bring the wine 🙂

    • The vintage looking cloth is actually 2 placemats from the Pioneer Woman collection at Walmart. They are reversible, you will see the other side of them tomorrow 🙂 Thanks for bringing the wine!

    Lovely transformation for your picnic basket. Love the colors, the fabric and ribbon. I’ve been wanting to plan a picnic but with these hot temps it won’t happen anytime soon. Now if I were at the shore it would be a different story, can’t wait to see your seaside picnic.
    Happy day……..

  6. Your basket is adorable! This is the kind of post I love.

    Cute! Ruffles!!! I’ll be there:@)

  10. I cannot believe that you posted about a picnic basket because I was looking at the one that my husband and I had gotten for a wedding gift and was wondering just what I should do with it. We, honestly, never used it, but it’s just so darned cute that I have managed to keep it all these years, I love your idea and may just dig ours out and breathe new life into it. Thanks!

    You never run out of ideas! I just threw a basket out rather than try to save it, and you make me think that was a mistake.

  12. Love how you pizzazzed up this basket! You’ve got me wanting to go on a picnic!
