Flip a bowl upside down. Using cotton clothesline, dab glue on the end of a cord and along a few inches of the length. Carefully wind clothesline to make a flat spiral and place it on the bottom of the bowl. Continue gluing and wrapping, pressing each new row of cord to the one before it. Use masking tape to hold the rows in place while you work. Once the bowl is covered, pull a 5” length of rope just after last row that that was glued to make a handle. Skipping a 3” section of the basket to make the handle loop, begin gluing until you're opposite the first handle and repeat loop. Cut rope. Tie ribbon around the rope where the handles re-attach to the basket. Once dry, gently remove the bowl.
