So my mom had an old wicker basket that I had broken the handles off when I was younger. And since her birthday is coming up I decided to fix it up for her. So I used an old leather belt to make some new strong handles. I hope you and my mom like it. 

Step 1: Materials

(1)-An old leather belt
(1)-Old/broken wicker basket
(8)-Brass fasteners

-Writing utensil
<p>where did you get the heavy brass fasteners? more importantly what were they called. i can't seem to find that style. are they for leather work?</p>
Wicker baskets are nice to have around for holding everything from laundry to magazines and soft cover books to pets. :) But looking at this basket, it looks like it's seen better days. No matter - it can be spruced up still!<br> <br> If you buy vinyl lacing (the stuff kids use to make braided key ring attachments) in any craft store - maybe even wider vinyl lacing too but I've never checked - you could wrap the entire upper edge, looping around and going through the spaces at the top part, it'll prevent any more wicker from breaking off while holding the broken part together. You could do it in brown or a nice coordinating colour like green. It'll make your mom's basket last many years longer and make her twice as happy!
