Creative Friday 5 {Bushel Baskets}



My friend Julie from the blog, Diary of a Homemaker asked me the other day if I had any craft ideas for using bushel baskets.  Other than putting mums and pumpkins in them for a fall display or using them to hold potatoes through the winter like my mother does...I had no ideas.  So I did some looking around and through Pinterest and Google images, this what I found.
