DIY- A whole assortment of pumpkin baskets.

Since I was making baskets anyway (link to post on cat baskets) figured I might as well continue and make some pumpkin themed baskets as well.

I did some rope baskets like this one with black button eyes.

This one was done in the more traditional Jack-O-Lantern style.

Some of my weaving with pipe cleaners.

I have tons of pipe cleaners around my house for all kinds of projects.

The smallest baskets I weaved were anywhere from 1-2 inches.

The small baskets are the perfect sizes for bits of chocolate pieces.

For a quick up-cycled basket project for anyone not into weaving just re-do an old basket by wrapping orange yarn around the handles and baskets.

Add some Jack-O-Lantern features and create away.

    1. I tried Etsy for awhile but couldn’t keep up and wasn’t great at marketing or the site design. I want to set up some sort of shop but mostly little patterns and kits I design with vintage supplies. That way everyone can craft together. It is such a fun hobby and I read somewhere it is a great stress reliever.
