Cut roughly 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch lengths of your wire to use for the stakes on your basket. (3 - 3.5 cm) Dip the ends of your wire into a bit of your glue and set the wires neatly into the holes all around the basket, taking care not to bend the wires. If necessary, you can turn the basket over and fill the holes on the base of the basket with a bit more glue to ensure everything fits neatly. Avoid getting excess glue on the wooden base of the basket near the base of the wires. Set aside to dry thoroughly before you begin to weave your basket
