What might be a little less known is 11-10. . .the Birthday of the United States Marine Corps! Seeing that we have a fellow Marine in our family, we always have to make sure we wish the United States Marine Corps a Happy Birthday! Happy 236th birthday to be exact!

To honor such a wonderful day (LOL!). . . I set out to finish up a DIY project that had been rolling around in the back of my mind for the past few weeks!
|Pottery Barn Wine Basket|
I got to work! This past weekend I took advantage of the warm weather and spray painted my purple basket with some oil rubbed bronze spray paint we had in the closet! I set it aside during the week to make sure it was nice and dry! I measured out some burlap trim and some hemp twine. . .warmed up my hot glue gun. . .and bam. . .I created a nice little Pottery Barn "wanna-be" wine (or anything) basket for that matter!
I think I'm going to give it as a Hostess gift to sweet Holly on Thanksgiving filled with all kinds of special treasures! I'm pretty excited with how it turned out considering I used things that I found in my craft drawers!
Happy Veteran's Day!!
