More Easter Baskets! Chris and I love to give each other baskets full of goodies on Easter morning. It reminds us of how Chris proposed. A few days before Easter Chris gave me a basket full of Easter eggs and took me to different locations that we had had a special moment. At each place, I opened one egg where there was a special memory inside. The final egg had the ring inside! It was such a sweet day and exchanging baskets is such great way to remember our engagement.
This project is truly simple! Make spokes of your basket by tying four pipe cleaners together. Add a ninth spoke and trim to the length of the other spokes. If you want to customize your basket and make it smaller or larger, add/delete the number of spokes. Make sure that you have an odd number of spokes, otherwise the weaving will not work.
Weave in another pipe cleaner, over and under the spokes. When the pipe cleaner ends, twist twice the end to the beginning of another pipe cleaner. Curve spokes upward to form the sides of the basket. Continue until you are satisfied with the shape and size. Tuck the spokes into the previous rows, trim excess. Finally, twist two pipe cleaners together to form handle, and hook onto the top of the basket. Enjoy!
Play with patterns and colors!
