Many professional basket makers weave palm fronds into baskets, and the amateur weaver can also join in the fun. Palm weaving has become quite popular, largely due to its association with Easter. It is also extremely popular in the southern U.S. You can create many shapes, including animals and baskets. Most baskets involve weaving leaves separated from the main stalk of the frond, but you can also make a basket out of an entire palm frond by weaving the leaves along each side together. This Fijian style simply takes a bit of folding.
