We just finished (except for the strings for the fake rings on the pillow) our ring bearer pillow and flower girl basket. What do you think? It’s all made from scratch except of course the silver wicker basket underneath the satin. My fiance is pretty creative alongside me :).
The pink is also more like a fushia pink.

@MrsManni: Awww thanks! If you have any questions about it, you can PM me :).
@MrsSl82be: Thanks! It’s kind of what we are going for for our whole wedding. Mostly ivory and black with little pops of color. Our ceremony decor will be 90% ivory/diamond white and the 10% color will be the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, ring bearer pillow, Flower Girl basket, bouquets, and other very small minor details. Mostly ivory/diamond white though :). I’m glad to see that we made this happen in these :oD. Thanks lots!!!

Those are super cute! Did you put the material on the basket or did it come like that? If you added it, could you explain how you did it? 🙂

Thanks! I bought the basket from Garden Ridge in the Christmas section and then bought the poly satin from Hobby Lobby. As as far as the folds go, it took alot of glue, pulling, tuggng, and a steady hand haha. I pleated two of the folds to begin going around the basket and glued those down then as I went around the basket I just folded/pleated as I went and glued as I went. Also what you could do is cut out long rectangles of the satin, fold in half so they are a little thick, and then layer them over each other onto the basket as you go around covering the edges of each thin rectangle. You want to make sure your material is long enough to go from the outside bottom to the inside bottom over the sides. That actually might have been easier for the whole thing, but I only had to do that to a couple pleats by the handle. The handle I just fold a piece of satin in half, hot glued the edges together then wrapped it around the wicker handle. It’s pretty easy to do. If you have any questions feel free to PM me :). The pop of color is what we were going for!
