Sometimes green pine needles are available. If available, the green (dried) pine needles in this kit were gathered from a storm-downed tree branch, and dried out of direct light, which let them retain their naturally green light color. They are fabulous for dying, if you are interested, Rit dyes work very well. If you do not dye them, they will eventually brown with time. They brown faster when exposed to sunlight.
Kit Add-on includes enough needles to make a medium/small basket (depends on your base size sample shown in last photo also used approx. 1 oz two-tone dyed needles for contrast)
Suggested tools for use with this kit:
•PREPARED BASKET BASE
•clothespin or clip
