How to make miniature wicker basket

This is the time to uncover my big secret of making basket. So I use a very simple yellow wire of 0.4mm width. I use brown acryl paint to get that fine shade of the baskets. If I need an old basket, I use matt paints and chalk powders to cover the shiny surface. The weaving is the same as they use making real size basket.

thanks for the tutorial, it seems easy to do.
I do not understand though, is "cotton" thread, or "wire"?
thanks
