First wrap your bowl in a plastic wrap and turn it up side down.

Add a small dot of white glue in the middle of the bowl and start wrapping the jute in a circle motion.

Be sure your rope is tight, so pull it gently whenever you create a new circle. Often press the finished part with your hand to flatten it down.

Add another circle of glue and keep on going the same way until you reach the end (or top) of your bowl. Cut the excess rope and glue it. Let it dry over night (or 24 hours). Remove your bowl and plastic wrap carefully from your basket (I must warn you, that part is quite difficult).

For the handle, measure and cut 3 pieces of rope in a desired length and make a braid.

Attach handles to your basket with a hot glue gun and that`s it! You can also paint your basket to make it more colorful or leave as is, it will be equally beautiful either way.
