How to upcycle a wire basket into a macramé carrier

In this video, we learn how to take a standard wire basket and give it new life by transforming it into an attractive macramé equivalent.

Macramé is a technique or method of crafting a textile that uses several knots to form the basic shape and function of the piece. Each knot can be created by hand; no other tools are required other than a mounting ring to keep the item in place while working.

For something to be considered macramé, the project should incorporate at least one macramé knot. In most cases, macramé projects are pieced together with several knots. For hybrid projects, macramé can be combined with other techniques such as weaving or knitting.
