3rd Craft Project Completed! Basket Weaving

♠ Posted by ArtMuse in at 3:55 PM

Basket weaving was new to me before this year. What's great about it is that you get really nice impressive results from a relatively easy process. Basically, I ordered the kits which come with a round pre-drilled wooden base with thin reeds and thick reeds. After you soak some reeds for about 10 minutes, you use the heavier, or thicker ones for the armature structure, and the thinner ones to weave in and out of them creating the walls. The best part? The kids really liked doing it!


Great idea! Where did you buy the kits?
