1. Get glue pan ready and pour in desired amount of glue pillows. Allow the glue to melt while you work on the handle.

2. Cut ribbon to desired length. Make sure to give yourself extra length.

3. Loop ribbon through the handle, leaving half on one side of basket and half on the other.

4. French knot the handle and tie of each end of the handle

Tip: If you don’t know how to french knot or don’t have time, simply wrap ribbon around the handle. Make sure to wrap tightly.

7. Attach to bottom of each handle using ribbon or binding wire

8. Tie two bows underneath the two nosegays
