I would have never thought to use the twine from Dollar Tree to make anything this useful. I have seen it in the tool aisle and never even thought much of it. Now, on my next trip I will be sure to pick up a couple of spools of this and make these for friends and family.

I would not even mind if this basket caught some kind of damage in the garage or store room because of the material used to make it. It should also be study enough to go through the wash when it is dirty. What a great project, cheap material but a great looking basket.

Dollar Tree is one of the most under utilized sources for craft materials, and many of them arent even in the craft section. Ive used jute and other twines from the hardware aisle, found plastic balls with bells inside for baby toys, and thats where I get all my elastic bands for ponytail hats. As for belts, thrift stores are amazing places to find them.
