DIY Cardstock & Yarn Basket Weaving: New One Minute Video

Today is my birthday!

Since celebrating together with my friends and family isn’t an option this year, I put together a fun basket tutorial for you instead. Hope it comes in handy when planning out your days in quarantine.

Baskets are great for storing, organizing or just to dress up an empty area of your home. They can be used as a versatile way to decorate your living space and when you make them yourself, you can choose the size, color and design. Fun for the whole family, this technique is an uncomplicated way to get introduced to the art of basket weaving. Just print off the template, grab a few skeins of yarn and before you know it, you just might have a new favorite hobby.
