I have been busy working away on my little girl’s bedroom since we moved into our new rental house a few months ago. You may have seen on Insta this picture of my inspiration colors. Well, I am happy to report I am nearly done which I think is an all time speed record for me. Today I am sharing the first of a handful of projects for my girl’s room. Today, I am sharing her little art DIY Ombre Basket.

I wish every DIY I made could be this simple! Take your basket outside and set on a painting cloth. To create the ombre effect, I simply sprayed the bottom completely yellow and then did one or two LIGHT coats across all four sides. The effect is simple, easy and quite lovely I think.
The handle of this basket was pretty rough to the touch and since it will be holding art supplies for my four year old, I wanted to protect her cute little fingers. I ended up wrapping the handle with a cheerful coral yarn I had just bought for another project in her room.
I started out by hot gluing the end of the yarn to the inside of the basket handle. Then, I slowly wrapped the yarn around and every 1″ or so applied a small dab of glue to keep everything in place.
And… now I kind of want to keep this fun basket for myself! Have you tried the ombre effect on any of your DIYs?
