Berry Baskets How-To
1. Join two pipe cleaners together end to end to make a handle (below).
2. Hot-glue a bow at the top to conceal the pipe cleaners' twist point.
3. Thread narrow ribbon through the slats, using white craft glue to secure the ends. Fill the bottom of the basket with Easter grass, then add candy eggs and bunnies, jelly beans, cookies, and a small stuffed animal.
