I found this cute straw handbag for near to nothing. It has a great look and can be useful in a fun way as a garden planter wreath. Add a lining (if using live flowers) or not if artificial flowers, which can get changed out with the different seasons. I wanted to give it a more fresh look, so it was updated with spray paint, colorful ribbon, and flowers.

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1

Supplies:

  • handbag
  • spray paint

  • ribbon
  • optional -plastic lining if using fresh flowers

Steps:

  1. Spray paint your bag and allow to dry. I gave this bag 2 coats.
