The Berry Basket Weaving project is a fun way to create something that will hold your treasures. Fill it with dried flowers or candy treats. It makes a great gift, too!

What You'll Need:

  • Plastic berry basket
  • Fabric or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Stapler
  • Tissue paper

Step 1: Cut several strips of fabric or ribbon as wide as the openings in your basket. Weave the strips in and out of the slots around the basket. Tie each strip in a knot and trim the excess.

Step 2: To make a handle, cut a 1-inch-wide strip of construction paper. Secure 1 end of the strip to each side of the basket with a stapler. If you want, use a strip of fabric or ribbon to tie a bow around the handle.

Step 3: Line your basket with tissue paper, then fill it with goodies.
