Spray Painted Paint Dipped Basket

Looking for an easy way to create a paint dipped basket without the mess? Try using spray paint. It doesn't require a vat of paint so you don't have to worry about knocking it over. Plus, spray paint dries a lot faster than regular paint so you can complete this paint dipped basket DIY in as little as an hour.

Krylon Canada recently announced the Tiffany Pratt X Krylon Spring Colour Collection and I've partnered with them to update a forgotten item in my home.

Like an audience member at the Marilyn Denis show this wicker basket was secretly hoping for it's chance at a makeover. It usually sits in our front foyer as a catch-all for shoes and stuff so I felt a paint dipped look would jazz it up while keeping it functional.

Here are the items I used to give my wicker basket a paint dipped look: Krylon Ballet Slipper Spray Paint, Kylon Primer, a wicker basket, painter's tape, yarn, scissors and hot glue.

I started by taping off the area I wanted to paint. Then I spray painted the area with Krylon Primer (this is such an important step especially for lighter tones). After the primer was dry (about 15 min) I sprayed the Krylon Ballet Slipper pink. It is such a soft and pretty pink that pairs perfectly with wicker.

Next I fashioned me some pom-poms (because well pom-poms). The instructions for these DIY pom-poms are available in one of my older post but here's a quick recap: Wrap yarn around your hand approx 50 times, pull the bundle off your hand and tie a piece of yarn around the middle, cut all the loops on each side of the knot and trim accordingly.

I used hot glue to attach the pom-poms to the basket and that's it, a faux paint-dipped basket without the mess or long dry times (seriously you could get this done in an hour).
