Farmhouse Rope Basket

February 17, 2002

· Tutorials,Home and Garden

Let me start by saying that your going to love - love - love this little basket we'll be making today. It's simple and oh-so fun to make!

Materials Needed:

  • Thick rope from the home improvement store
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Yarn

Start making your basket on a table, starting to roll the rope like seen here in the second photo. Keep wrapping onto itself till you have the size basket that you'd like.

Once you have the bottom made, start building the sides. Place some white glue onto the last ring of the bottom, than keep wrapping going up rather than out. Keep wrapping till you have the height you'd like.

Now wrap a piece of twine around the top several times to help hold it together - plus it's a little embellishment.

Now we'll make some pom-poms.

Take the yarn and wrap it around your four fingers. Keep wrapping till you get a pretty thick bundle of yarn. Remove it from your hand, cut in half - now fold in half and wrap a piece of yarn around the top.

Now take your pom-poms with just a bit of hot glue and attach them around the twine.

And your done!
