Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baskets overflowing with seasonal delights or homemade vinegars and oils are featured
in this inspiring book which contains 75 innovative projects and ideas for filling and
assembling attractive baskets for perfect gifts or for decorations at home.
Using simple materials on hand, found objects such as shells, and seasonal flowers and
fruit, the author explains how to make decorative baskets for everyday use or for
special occasions. Because the time of year determines what materials are readily available
to fill decorative baskets, the projects in this book are arranged by season, from
springtime wildflowers baskets and shell baskets in the summer to autumn harvest baskets
and Christmas baskets.
For each project there are detailed, step-by-step instructions, accompanied by a list
of materials needed. An inspiring photograph is included which represents the completed
project. In addition, there are original sketches of the projects by the author, whose
paintings have been exhibited worldwide.
The ideal gift for any craft enthusiast, this appealing volume will also delight flower
arrangers and creative individuals interested in home decoration.
Elizabeth Jane Lloyd is a successful painter who also teaches fine art. She is the author
of Enchanted Circles, a book on creating wreaths, and Watercolor Still Lifes.

Synopsis:

Baskets containing seasonal delights are perfect for gifts or home decoration. This captivating book contains 75 fun and easy projects and ideas for making, filling, and decorating baskets. All with a seasonal theme, the baskets celebrate holidays including Valentine's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, and are wonderful gifts for such special occasions as birthdays and anniversaries.

The projects encompass a wide range of styles and techniques, from traditional country crafts using flowers, foliage, and herbs to more innovative ideas using materials as diverse as candles, sculpting clay, cookies, and chocolate. Bountiful baskets of all shapes and sizes are filled with decorative objects or edible treats, including:

* Fresh and dried flowers

* Decorated Easter eggs

* Gingerbread men

* A picnic spread

* Seashells

* Ripe summer fruit

* Aromatic oils and herbs

* Wheat and corn dolls

* Sewing materials

* Bright craft beads

* Christmas specialties

There is a detailed "recipe" for creating each basket, with clear step-by-step instructions. Even so, each of the projects may be modified to allow for individual interpretation and creativity, making them memorable gifts and decorations.
