Pine Needle Bowls

Happy New Year!   

A busy holiday kept me from posting on my blog, but not from making baskets.  Here are some of my new baskets.

I have been  experimenting with using cutout wooden disks as a base for pine needle bowls.  First I drilled small holes around the edge of the wooden disks.   I used waxed linen to attach the pine needles to the base and to continue to wrap around the base and to bring up the sides.

Using both natural pine needles and black and burgundy dyed pine needles I created bands of color around the bowls.
