Start gluing the edge of the rope in the format of a spiral using the hot glue gun (photo 2).  Place the ceramic bowl upside down on a table and continue making the spiral with the rope and the glue using the bottom of the bowl as a mold, but be careful to not glue the rope on the it.  (photo 3 and 4).

Continue the same process using the lateral of the bowl as the mold for your basket. When you reach the desirable size remove the rope basket from the ceramic bowl (photo 5). To make the basket’s handles let a bit of rope on the edge and continue gluing the rope around the basket (photo 6)

Do the same thing on the other side to create the second handle (photo 7). Cut the rope in a size it will finish in the middle of one of the handles (photo 8) and glue the end of it.
