DIY Flower Girl Lavender Basket

DIY Projects

This DIY Tutorial was created by Kathy from the wonderful Pink Chalk Studio blog. Although this project was meant to be used as a home decor, I thought this basket would be adorable for flower girls to carry down the aisle (specially at venues where petal toss is not allowed).

Kathy’s Lavender Basket:

General: The basket ornament uses the same construction process of weaving as displayed in making lavender wands. This tutorial will assume you are familiar with that concept.

What you’ll need:

– 13 stems of Lavender (or any odd number you prefer)

– 2 yards of satin ribbon

– Wire

Step 1: Tie one end of ribbon approximately 2 inches below base of lavender buds.

Step 2: Turn the whole project upside down. Spread stems in same fashion as you would for making a lavender wand.

Step 3: Weave ribbon until you reach the base of the lavender buds.

Step 4: Divide the stems in two parts. One part will have 6 stems, the other 7. These stems will be grouped to form the basket handles.

Step 5: Cut 2 pieces of wire. Wrap wire around each of the two sections meeting to form a single handle at the top. The wire will keep the stems from separating and provide structure to the basket handles.

Step 6: To finish basket, take remaining ribbon and wrap around the handle beginning at the base of the buds and making your way around the entire handle until you’re back where you started. Tie off the end and make a decorative bow as desired.
