Kinda cute huh? I'm so loving it, and it was super easy to make.
Cute not just for Easter but for the entire spring season, and ya, I'm thinking it'll make a come back in the fall.
Let's get you one made.
Here's what you'll need:
Little note here, the basket pictured above used 2 six foot grapevine garlands and craft/floral wire,
flower stems and sheer ribbon.
When I went to get 2 more garlands to make this tutorial, they didn't have any!
Ugh, what to do?
I ended up buying four grapevine wreathes instead.
Three the same size and the fourth the next size bigger.
I used the remaining piece of garland I had for the handle, if needed, get another of the larger wreathes to cut for a handle.
**If you're using the garlands, shape the vine into a circle the size you want and wire together.
Make another circle layer and wire that one to the first.
Keep going in that manner (form a circle, wire it into place) until your base is as tall as you'd like.
Cut the last wreath so that you remove about 1/3 of it.
(You need some twigs to sit down in the basket, if you cut it in half your handle will be very short.)
Sit the cut wreath into the basket vertically and wire the handle into place.
**For the garland, cut a piece of vine the length you wish and wire each end into place. I doubled mine just so it was a bit thicker.
And you're done.
Your basket is ready to be filled.
You can place a vase down inside the basket and add some fresh flowers or go with the Easter thing and add some painted plastic (or real) eggs...
Can't you just see it full of fall leaves and acorns too?
So quick and easy, make a bunch!
