A fall craft idea that's full of autumnal blooms, this woven basket centerpiece is a gorgeous DIY.

flower-filled fall craft, the handwoven look of basket weave meets streamlined simplicity in a container made by wrapping a strip of caning around a glass cylinder. It contains an array of cymbidium orchids, seeded eucalyptus, and leaves of Bradford pear trees. For flowers without strong stems, such as cymbidium blossoms, use water tubes. They'll keep the blooms fresh and make them easier to arrange.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Using scissors, cut the caning to the height and the circumference of a cylindrical glass vase.

Step 2

Place glue dots or strips at regular intervals on the vase, and wrap the caning around it, lining up the cut edges to make a neat seam.

Step 3

If the cylinder is wide and shallow, like the one we used, use floral foam to anchor the arrangement: Carve a block of foam to fit inside the cylinder, and soak it with water. Cut the stems of flowers or foliage, and insert them into the foam.
