This is how it is done

Step 1

To make the wire basket, first gather eleven plug wires, wrap them tightly in the middle with winding wire, then bend them apart radially and bend them outward 90 degrees. Then weave the winding wire through the plug wires to the to the top, so that a basket weave is formed.

Step 2

Spray the wire basket with water to give it a rusty patina. Then uncoil a lot of winding wire, crumple it and place it over a floral foam ball which was cut in half. Insert the wire basket with its stem into the ball.

Step 3

Now fix the pine needles on the hemisphere with the help of spray adhesive and add the remaining. Add the other materials, and finally put the candle in the basket.
