Cane basket making

This is a satisfying craft as it uses such nice material. It isn’t difficult if you follow this post. You can use a cane basket for Easter eggs or as a table display.

I use 2.5 mm thick cane which you can order from craft shops online. You don’t need to use a wooden base if you don’t want to. If you make a cane base you can use as table mat for hot objects or with longer pieces of cane they can become the sides of a basket. You can stick in new pieces of cane as stems to make the sides longer for something like a waste paper basket
