I grabbed the smaller basket first and found the mid-way point. Then I started to unweave the basket cording.

Start Unweaving

After I cleared a section, I measured it. Basically I just used my fingers width as a guide because this doesn’t have to be exact. Then I cut the strip out of the moss table runner.

Cut Strip Of Moss

Then with the cut strip, weave it under a basket side support cord like I did. Keep weaving until your two ends meet in the back. Tuck or weave any access moss into the basket.

Weave Moss In

So for the large basket, I placed a small bucket upside down and placed it inside of the basket to rest on the bottom of the container.

Filling The Basket Container Garden

For the smaller basket, all I had to do was place the hanging basket inside. No extra steps needed because it was a great fit already!
