How to decorate a basket with ribbon?
There are a couple of ways you can decorate a basket with ribbon, depending on the look you're going for and the type of basket you have.

Here are a few ideas:
Simple Wrap:
  • This is a quick and easy way to add a touch of color or festivity to your basket. Choose a ribbon that complements the basket and the items you'll be placing inside.
  • Cut a length of ribbon long enough to wrap around the basket several times.
  • Start at the back of the basket and simply wrap the ribbon around the basket, tucking the end under the previous loops as you go.
  • Once you've wrapped the basket completely, tie a knot or bow on the side.

  • This method creates a more intricate look and is a good option for hiding any imperfections on the basket.
  • You'll need a longer length of ribbon for this technique.
  • Start at the back of the basket and weave the ribbon in and out of the basket weave, going around once to meet the starting point.
  • Pull out the ribbon you just weaved through and use it as a measurement for the next section.
  • Continue weaving the ribbon in and out until the entire basket is covered.
  • You can secure the end with a dab of hot glue or by tucking it under one of the weaves.

Accented Handle:
  • This is a great way to add a pop of color or pattern to a plain basket.
  • Cut a length of ribbon long enough to wrap around the handle of the basket several times with some extra length on each end.
  • Wrap the ribbon around the handle, starting from the bottom and working your way up.
  • Secure the ends with hot glue on the underside of the handle.
  • You can add a bow on top of the handle for an extra touch.

Here are some additional tips for decorating your basket with ribbon:
  • Consider using wired ribbon for easier weaving and shaping.
  • Use different colored or patterned ribbons to create a more unique look.
  • Add other embellishments like artificial flowers, beads, or buttons for a personalized touch.
  • If you're using hot glue, be careful not to burn yourself or damage the basket.
