Rope-Handled Basket Weaving Kit for Beginners

April Basket Beginner Basket Weaving Kit
Isn’t April just flying by? A couple weeks ago, I whipped up this lovely woven basket and stuffed it with Easter candy and a fuzzy bunny for my 3-year-old nephew. And although it wouldn’t fit in this basket, I also gifted him his first baseball bat. Let me tell you, that kid was thrilled! Most importantly, I’ve put together a beginner-friendly basket weaving kit so you can make your own sweet, little woven basket. Better still, this project comes together in two hours or less.

Isn’t this basket the sweetest? If you think this project looks familiar, it’s based on my original free Easter Basket Pattern which I designed for Martha Stewart. It’s still a great gift to make for anyone, and once you’ve made one basket, you’ll want to make all the baskets. You can apply this basic technique but vary the mold to make woven baskets of all shapes and sizes. Hooray!

The April Basket Kit includes beautiful natural flax cord, a PDF pattern, and a handy video to walk you through all the steps! There’s a few reasons to fall in love with this kit. First, the kit has everything you need to get started with weaving. That includes the basket mold (reusable plastic container), washi tape, braided rope for the handle, and a darning needle (to save those fingers from doing all the heavy lifting). Second, this weaving project looks super pretty with a houseplant tucked inside. Third, you could also use it to store makeup, those random items you take out of your purse, or your favorite craft supplies. Basically, the sky’s the limit!
