Step 2: Making the basket

To make a little basket for this balloon, cut out a brown paper of 3 ½ inches to 2 ½ inches. Cut out strips of brown paper of about 1-inch width each and fold them into halves each.

Weave the strips of brown paper together. To make the top of the basket, fold over the top part of the vertical strips and secure each with glue.

Once you have enough vertical pieces you can start weaving in the horizontal pieces of the basket. Leave some slack while doing so, so that the basket does not look flat.

Finish the basket by taking another piece of brown paper and weaving it into the bottom of the basket. Secure this with glue on both sides. Also secure the bottom part of all the vertical pieces to the bottom back of the board.
Using some hot glue, attach the balloon to the basket with a string. Glue another piece of string to the back of the balloon and hang it onto a hook as spring home decor.
