Yesterday, I got it in my head that I wanted to make a wire basket. I couldn't find a tutorial so I had to wing it. I don't seem to find anything here that was similar either.

I wanted something similar to a gathering basket, but decorative so I can display it when not in use. I started with paper grapevine wire for the shape. I then wove a brown 24GA wire for the sides. To finish it up I wired a moss garland to the top, added grapevine handles with stained beads for a decorative grip.



If anyone is interested I can work up a tutorial for a small round one, using what I learned.

That's really different and functional.  I'd love to see how you did it.
