Woven Strawberry Basket

Woven Strawberry Basket

This craft teaches the concepts of simple sewing (in, out, up, down, pull through). Younger kids will need a little bit of help. Older kids can experiment with different materials.

By Gayle Remisch

What You Need:

  • Plastic strawberry baskets.
  • Crepe paper streamers, ribbon, or strips of material.
  • Scissors.
  • Pipe cleaners in assorted colors.

What You Do:

Wash and dry the basket.

Fold strips of crepe paper streamer lengthwise in half reducing it’s width. Use roughly an arms length of streamer.

If you want a nice bow, then start weaving from the middle of one side of the basket, with the middle of the ribbon.

Weave one half then the other and stop at the opposite side, and tie a bow.

Begin weaving the streamer/ribbon/material through the holes, any way you want.

When done, braid three different colours of pipe cleaners and attach to either side of the basket as a handle.

Fill the basket with whatever you like.
