What you'll need:

  • pencil
  • spray paint (in various light-to-dark shades)

Step 1

Working from the top down, divide the basket into four equal parts, lightly marking each section with a pencil.

Step 2

On one side of the basket, spray-paint the second section from the top with the lightest color of spray paint. You can let the paint overlap into the next section a little—that will help give the basket an ombré look.

Step 3

Letting the paint overlap a little each time, repeat, using a darker color of spray paint on the section below the first and an even darker color on the bottom section.

Step 4

Repeat steps 2 and 3 on each side of the basket.
