DIY Dip Dyed Baskets...You will Need Stir Sticks, Water-based Latex Paint, Large plastic storage bin, Baskets, Foam Paintbrush... Stir paint thoroughly, and pour into plastic bin. Carefully dip basket into paint. Work slowly; as you dip, the paint will push up the sides of the basket. Once you've reached the desired line, slowly pull basket out of paint. If you want a higher line than the dipped mark, use foam brush to paint a new line. Hang basket to dry completely.
