Repeat this process for the other strips. You should end up with sides four strips high. Glue in the corners and in other areas as necessary. Trim the excess pieces so the top of the basket is even. Grab one more strip, cut it to size, measuring it first inside the basket, and then glue it in place to form the handle. Ta da!I realized after I had it all glued together that I made a mistake in my weaving, but it’s still super cute, and yours will be absolutely perfect, I’m sure. 🙂
Aren’t they pretty? I can just see the Thanksgiving guests already, ooohhhing and ahhhhing over these things! Because how could you not? :)Oh how I love apples of the red and golden delicious variety, especially in chocolate and cookie form. 🙂
I love that they come together really quickly and sure make a statement, especially when placed in a cute DIY paper basket!These would also make great teacher gifts! I think I’ll send a few with my kids to school before the Thanksgiving break.
