Selecting a Container
Hereís where you really get
creative. Let your imagination run wild. Wicker or woven baskets work
great, but virtually anything that can support items can be used as a
container. Remember that the container you choose needs to be the right
size for the items that will go inside, and must be strong and stable
enough to support them.
Itís usually best to pick a container AFTER youíve decided on the items
you plan to use. That way you can choose an appropriately sized
container that is relative to the size of the contents.
Dollar stores are great for finding inexpensive containers...or, hit the
thrift stores or yard sales. Old containers can be revitalized with
spray paint or covered with fabric.

unique and unusual containers.
