Wall Basket

November 21, 2010

Another of this week’s projects was a wall basket. Any basket which has a flat back and some handles is perfect to hang on the wall. I love this type because it can be so functional but is also so attractive!

There are three basic types of baskets– square bottom (rectangles count too), round bottom, and ribbed. You’ll see examples of all three on this blog, but this one is square bottomed.  Here’s how this kind of basket starts out:

The stakes are laid out in a grid to begin

Beginning of the wall basket

The long pieces you see above are called stakes, and they form the bottom (grid part shown here) and sides of the basket. After I laid out the pieces in that grid, I bent the edges up and began to weave around.

Final product:

 

Love the finished product!

 

Lovely to hold either something decorative or something you might need as you go in and out the door– mail that needs to go to the post office? A small umbrella? Endless possibilities.

    When and how did you get into making baskets? Did they teach you at cold springs? These are wonderful!

    This one won’t be mine because I already have a beautiful version like this. (Just a reminder 🙂
