I donated a hair bow basket to my daughter's school's silent auction. Basically what I did is put some stuffing in the basket (whatever prettiness you prefer) and some basic things (cosmetic bag, hairbrush) in the basket. Then I took a long piece of 1 1/2" ribbon and wove it very loosely around the basket handle with the two ends of the ribbon sort of draping down into the basket...I tucked them down in the filler. Then I clipped the bows to the ribbon, around the handle and on the ribbon draped into the basket.
I'm sure there are many other ways to do it, but it was eye-catching and brought in a good donation
