Project tips
  • Chinatown can be a great source for inexpensive baskets; ours was only $4!
  • Look for a deep basket with flat sides; this gives an ample “canvas” on which to display the pussy willows. The basket’s weave should also be loose enough to allow you to thread wire through it.
  • Instead of attaching the pussy-willow bundles and bows with floral wire, they can also be hot glued in place.
  • Use the completed basket to collect Easter eggs, display decorative eggs, or as a vessel for a springtime floral bouquet. Line with plastic and make an arrangement using floral foam, or fill with potted plants topped with moss.
