Large Open Weave Twig Basket

I made a basket for my the Easter Parade demonstration that would look natural and even a little wild with sticks and tendrils sticking out. Something the Easter Bunny would weave and carry.

I wove the basket from vine and paper wire.

The green berries are paper covered baubles and the blossoms are dried hydrangea florets.

I filled it with Hot Cross Buns as Favors for the audience. The gifts also contained the Easter Egg Hunt prizes.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
