Step 2:  Hot glue the end of the plastic rope on the extreme lower body of the plastic container

Step 3: Wrap the plastic rope around the plastic container.  Continue gluing every 3 to 5 centimeters on the first row of the plastic rope.  This will secure the rope from moving unexpectedly on the container body.

Step 4:  Continue wrapping the container with the rope upwards.  Make sure that you don’t leave any spaces in between.

Step 5:  Once the end of the rope is reached and you are satisfied with the height of the rope, hot glue the end of it on the container body.

Step 6:  Cut three strips of newspaper.  This will be the handle of the Easter basket later.

Step 7:  Twine each of the strips firmly.

Step 8:  Align the three twined newspapers and tape one end of it firmly.

Step 9:  Tightly braid the three twined newspapers together.

Step 10:  Tape the end one you are done braiding it.

Step 11:  Cover the working table with a newspaper spreadsheet.

Step 12:  Paint the braided newspaper.  Double coat it if you are not satisfied with the results.

Step 13:  Let it dry for an hour.

Step 14:  Cut the excess part of the braided handle.

Step 15:  Hot glue the braided handle on the container body.  Let it dry after.

Step 16:  Place all the plastic eggs on the basket.
