I finished my first Pine Needle Basket and love how it came out! It sure was fun and easy to do. The base is a circular piece of wood with a hummingbird and flower stamped onto it, which I filled in with colored pencils. I used a wood-burner to etch my name and date on the bottom. The basket is made with pine needles that fall off the pine trees and it is woven together with artificial sinew, which is waxy and strong. Then it is covered in shellac to keep it shiny and firm. I think I will sign up for the next 3-class session after all, so I can make another basket in a different style this time.
