  • Squeeze your fabric paint out onto a plate.
  • Use a dry paint brush for this project.
  • Dip the paintbrush into the paint and start applying it to the bottom edge of the basket.
  • As there is less paint on the brush, work your way up to that the paint fades into a very light shade toward the top.
  • Repeat all the way around the basket.
  • Let dry.
  • Fill with your pet’s favorite cat toys and dog toys.
