All you need is a basket, decorative napkins, white glue, water and sponge . . . all available at the Dollar Tree.
Separate the white paper backing from the printed side of the napkin.
Lay the napkin printed side up on the basket. Wet sponge with water and gently tap the napkin down following the layout. Tear off any excess, and add napkin pieces to fill-in the basket area, one side at a time. It's easy to overlap using this method.
Allow to dry. Trim off any excess napkin paper.
Once dry, mix one part white glue to 1/4 part water. Apply mixture using sponge over entire napkin.
You can seal the basket on the outside with glossy varnish, if you want. I don't know of a sealant that's food safe.
This method of using water and a sponge to apply the napkin is quick and easy. And I found wrinkles to be at a minimum. Once dry, the glue and water mixture as a decoupage, using a sponge to apply, goes on smoothly, too.
Using this technique, there are so many possibilities to decoupage lots of dollar store baskets and decorative napkins for everyday home usage and for special occasions, inexpensively.
