We found myriad silk neckties at the thrift shop for about $2 apiece. This basket is tied together using thin embroidery floss so the silk neckties have the greatest surface presence. Thicker materials such as satin or parachute cord or yarn can add a splash of extra color and texture. The how-to pictures below give a hint of the effect of using bright satin cord available at yarn and craft stores.
