  • Step 1Assemble your desk organiser before decorating for easy construction. For permanent assembly you will need to glue the pieces together.
  • Step 2Begin by giving your desk organiser a coat of white paint. Allow to dry. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.
  • Step 3Paint your organiser with bright colours. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Choose a piece of coloured or patterned paper and use a ruler to draw your fence. Use a marker to outline and add detail to your fence. Cut out with scissors and attach to the front of your desk organiser with glue.
  • Step 5Cut pieces of patterned paper to attach to your flower. Look to our flower designs for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 6Cut a chenille stem into 3 even pieces. Attach a daisy sticker to the top of each stem and glue to the inside of your desk organiser. Allow to dry.
  • Fill your basket with stationery or if you plan to give the basket as a gift, line it with some tissue paper before placing your gift inside.
