Here is an updated version of those homemade easter baskets using a twine-handled bag I snagged at Target. I try to bring my own bags, but when I see a potential craft project in the checkout line, I can’t resist. The twine handle is then twisted together to make the adorable basket handle. You can make the handle as tall or short as you like, and I used the whole handle on my basket. It’s so adorable for Easter treats or to hold some tasty macarons for an afternoon tea with a friend. Making homemade Easter baskets is also an excellent project for an afternoon activity with the kids.
Here is the extra good news! After making a half dozen of these little cuties, a light bulb went off in my head on how to make it easier to wrangle the weaving process. I added this idea to my new tutorial below. Remember, you can make your baskets larger by increasing the width of your strips. FYI, this basket is on my “Handcraft Your Life Video Series” list. Wouldn’t it be a great video tutorial? Check back in tomorrow and see how you can help make that happen! ~ Lia
