Free Art Yarn Pattern: Basket Wrap

You don't need to know how to knit or crochet to make this Friday's Pattern!  I found this cute little basket planter at the thrift store for 99 cents.  I thought it would be pretty to weave art yarn thru it.  So I took it home and started weaving.  I discovered that I don't have a lot of talent weaving baskets as the basket got uglier and uglier.  One of my friends was watching me make it and said, "Your basket looks moldy" and I said, "Awesome" and kept going.

Art Yarn Lesson #2673:

When it starts to get ugly, keep going.  This process is called "walking thru the valley of ugly" and most of the time you come out on the other side with something prettier than you ever imagined!

I ended up covering the weaving by wrapping 2 yards of art yarn around the basket and adding a silk ribbon.  Voila!  It's pretty again!
