First, we gave them all names and created individual characteristics for them. We then used this information to make some ID tags. We then thought about a place to keep them, and a basket seemed an obvious choice.
As an avid recycler, I already had a collection of empty yoghurt pots that were perfect for the job!
I started by cutting the lip off to make the top completely circular. I then covered it with brown wool, ribbon and ric-rac, secured into place with strong glue. A length of wool tied around it holds the ID tag in place.
Snakes in baskets have without a doubt been my most popular makes this year. The quirkier the better, I say!
