Step 2.


To make the basket, follow the steps for the Easter Wooden Basket, using a light brown Fuzzy Stick for the handle. To make a wood grain look, first paint the basket with the light tan paint. While it’s still wet, lightly brush dark brown paint. Tip: Don’t cover the sticks completely. Some of the light tan paint should still show through.
