I decided to whip up a few of these easter baskets the other day.

I made it by soaking crochet string in fabric starch and then wrapping it around a balloon. Then you wait a day or two till its dry, pop the balloon, cut a hole in it, decorate and smash the bottom in a little so it sits flat.

The string I used on this one is variegated (I think that's the right word) with a pastel pink, blue, green and yellow, which I thought was perfect for Easter

Anywho, on to pictures.....

Cool!  So - is it just decorative, or can it hold Easter goodies without falling apart??

Thanks! It can hold Easter goodies, its about as strong as a thin wicker basket. I just didn't have anything to put in it for the pictures. My boyfriend decided he wants to make one for his neice this year so I'll try to remember to take pictures when he's done and we have it all filled with chocolate and easter goodness
