Baskets containing seasonal delights are perfect for gifts or home decoration. This captivating book contains 75 fun and easy projects and ideas for making, filling, and decorating baskets. All with a seasonal theme, the baskets celebrate holidays including Valentine's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, and are wonderful gifts for such special occasions as birthdays and anniversaries.

The projects encompass a wide range of styles and techniques, from traditional country crafts using flowers, foliage, and herbs to more innovative ideas using materials as diverse as candles, sculpting clay, cookies, and chocolate. Bountiful baskets of all shapes and sizes are filled with decorative objects or edible treats, including:

* Fresh and dried flowers
* Decorated Easter eggs
* Gingerbread men
* A picnic spread
* Seashells
* Ripe summer fruit
* Aromatic oils and herbs
* Wheat and corn dolls
* Sewing materials
* Bright craft beads
* Christmas specialties

There is a detailed "recipe" for creating each basket, with clear step-by-step instructions. Even so, each of the projects may be modified to allow for individual interpretation and creativity, making them memorable gifts and decorations.

Nice photos, but "how-to" instructions are skimpy, lacking diagrams, and not always related to the photos shown in the book.
