Baskets are easy and fun

Here’s another basket woven from trailing blackberry vine. I take these and stick them into nooks in trees as “AirBnB’s” for birds. Literally. They’re fast and entertaining to make. The key is starting with an odd number of spokes. Remember that. Odd. Spokes.

This one took about 20 minutes to weave. Some bird will thank me, someday, maybe.

The bright green one is a nine spoke version (as opposed to the seven spoke one there and above). That old thing there was a five minute job I made while walking through the woods and stuck in a branch and fell out during the winter. And those are the vines used, stripped of their leaves (and some of their thorns).
