This woven basket is made on a wooden basket weaving template with pre-drilled holes and flower sticks, which have been shortened for this purpose. The weaving is made from twisted sea grass cord in two colours.

Guide step 1
1.
Shorten the flower sticks to the desired length. Use a mitre cutter. Then use the hammer to hammer a flower stick into each of the pre-drilled holes on the wooden basket weaving template.
Guide step 2
2.
Attach the sea grass cord onto the base and the inside of any flower stick using a blob of glue applied with a glue gun. Now weave in and out of each flower stick.
Guide step 3
3.
If you wish to change the colour, cut the sea grass cord when finishing a round and attach a new cord at the end of the previous one with a blob of glue. Use a glue gun.
Guide step 4
4.
NB: As the weaving progresses, gently tap on the sea grass cord with a hammer between each flower stick for a tight weave.
Guide step 5
5.
Finish the basket with a plaited water lily cord. This cord is flat and therefore easy to place and attach with glue along the edge.
