When i did my Easter baskets, i just used a bunch of 1" peices of 3/8" ribbon and when i heat sealed the one end i just used the flame to make it a rounded shape. I guess you could always use a wood burning tool too. Then i just figured out where they would look good in the basket and hot glued them on one at a time. In the front they don't look as long because they are behind the basket. I hope that helps I'm not very good at explaining lol. I made a bunch of them so if you have any other questions i can try to help you.
