My creative space

I've started making a handmade pressie that has fastly become a new favourite of mine. Last week I made two of these herb baskets for birthday presents and today I made another for a house warming gift. 

I bought the basket from the op shop for 10c and then lined it with an old hessian bag that I had stored away. I filled it with some potting mixture and then added some beautiful smelling herbs. This basket includes rosemary, basil, chives, lettuce, corriander and parsley.

I whipped this up in no time and many of the herbs were pulled from my own vegie garden making it a really inexpensive exercise but full of love.

What a fabulous idea. I think that present will be loved by whomever's at the receiving end.

Brilliant idea! I've seen so many hokey baskets at Op Shops and wondered how they could be used!

They look stunning, kinda jealous, tempted to fake a birthday party and invite you round ;)

You clearly have some good thrifty shops near you, never anything good here :(
