This sewing basket was coming apart. With some glue and some floral foam inside, it became the base of a tree.
Wooden spools made nice ornaments...

This sewing basket was coming apart. With some glue and some floral foam inside, it became the base of a tree. I put floral foam inside the basket around the base of the tree. I poked the truck of the tree through the basket and inserted it back into the stand. Then I glued the lid onto the bottom. I also touched with glue up some areas of the basket that were coming apart. The addition of buttons, an old measuring tape, button cards, wooden spools, and thimbles pulled this tree together in a snap!
