Sorry to be so crabby, but expenses keep piling up. Now I have to find a flower girl basket and everything is so expensive, given that the flower girl will carry this thing for a few minutes.
Where can I get an inexpensive but still cute basket for her to carry? I wish I didn’t live in this crappy dink town where all we have is a Walmart and all other stores are 45 minutes away. Sigh.

Do you have a craft store anywhere nearby? Our Michaels and Hobby Lobby have stuff like that for great prices!

@Gemstone: Yes, but 45 minutes away. My town literally only has a Walmart and 2 grocery stores. Ugh. I’ll probably go there tonight. I am just crabby because all this stuff is so expensive, hard to find, given where I am, and just a big pain to get. 🙁

@mspartridge: Try AC Moore or Michaels online if they don’t have one near you. Yesterday, I got a flowergirl basket for 16.99 with a 50% off coupon and an additional 15% off because I am a teacher. It only cost me $7.37 and its got a satin overlay with crystal accents.

Anything wedding related is overpriced. I found a white basket, wrapped the handle with ribbon and hot glued a flower onto the front. Made the whole basket for under $3. You could easily do the same thing with supplies found at Wal-mart. good luck!

@PuntaCanaBride: That’s such a great idea!

Dollar tree for a small basket. If you can’t find a white one, buy a can of spray paint and make it white.

There’s no need to spend that kind of money. As a pp has said, WalMart has baskets and a craft section with ribbon and silk flowers. Add a bit of hot glue and you are done.

I got two at Michaels on sale.

My flower girl basket was an Easter basket on clearance after the holiday. I’d also check Goodwill.

@beachbride1216: I am going to do that! 🙂 I ran to the dollar store just now and found a woven basket. And it turns out that fiance has a leftover can of white spray paint, so I just spray painted it. It turned out ok, and I think I’ll add some ribbons on it to dress it up.
