BAS­KET WEAVE

Do It Yourself - - What To Do With -

Use an open-weave bas­ket as your loom, this photo. Our bas­kets are me­tal wires, but an open-weave bas­ket of any type would work. For an eclec­tic look, gather a va­ri­ety of tex­tu­ral ma­te­ri­als, such as yarn braided or tied into macramé knots, leather, denim, vel­vet, rib­bon, and wood beads threaded on yarn. Cut ma­te­ri­als into strips and weave each in and out of the frame­work. Se­cure each strip at the top and bot­tom by fold­ing it over the bas­ket frame and, on the in­side of the frame, glue each piece onto it­self with hot glue or fab­ric glue. We love the look of our bas­kets as dec­o­ra­tive houseplant con­tain­ers!

PLACE AN IN­NER POT AND SAUCER IN­SIDE THE WO­VEN BAS­KET TO HOLD THE DIRT AND HOUSEPLANT.
