Day 5 of the corners / wicker baskets tutorial.

 We made a basket, only one each.
Let me show you how we did it:
First you need a piece of sticky florist tape.
 I did cut a piece 50 cm and cut that piece lenghtwise in tree pieces.
Wrap that around a florist wire of 7mm.
Saw a circle from thin wood and dril holes in it not to far apart from eachother, make sure it is an uneven number.
 Cut the wire a bit longer than you want your basket to be.
 Glue the wire in the holes.
 Weave small rope or cotton tread around the wire.
 If you want your basket to be wider on top bent it before weaving.
Finish of by making handels from a piece of rope  or not and make a braid to decorate the top and hide the wood on the bottom.
We used tacky glue because that doesn't make stains when dryed.
On the picture the glue is still wet.
 A lot of work, but they turned out pretty cute, don't you think?
I hope you like this tutorial .
If you have questions, please ask, i'll be glad to help.

Claude,to finish of when your reached the desired hight you have to put glue at the ends on the inside and outside.When the glue is dry cut of the wire.Hide the ends with a braid.
Succes
