I think it looks cute the way it is, but if you wanted a liner, I’d go with a satin fabric and line the inside. I lined (and covered) my flower girls basket with white satin and it turned out really well. great job!

I think it would look great with a white satin liner.  I think a liner would make it look more finished!!  It looks great though!!

@aaronsbride2b:  I used a glue gun for the entirety of my basket, but the only thing I will suggest is if you are using a satin, which is a very delicate fabric, make sure you place the glue around the brim at the top, and then around the crease where the side of the basket meets the bottom if that makes sense. Don’t put it along the bottom in the middle area, or along the sides, because it will show right through the satin and make it all bumpy… hopefully that makes sense.

i would get the glue gun ready… then get a plastic bowl a lil smaller in size- glue the liner to the bowl as sometimes when using glue guns it sticks better to plastics- the i would just set the bowl inside. ..its very easy, good luck and dont forget to post a finished pic πŸ™‚

@aaronsbride2b:  You can definitely get them pretty cheap at walmart.. and if you’re like me, you might want a low temperature one because those burns hurt the least. πŸ˜›

I think it needs a bow, flower, or something on the sides where the handle meets the actual basket. Something of a larger scale that will make it fell more complete.
