    Now you need to place the plastic film over it. Roll out a length of film that looks about twice the height of the basket arrangement. Place the basket in the middle of the plastic and hold up the sides. The plastic should extend above the basket by 6-8 inches.

    Cut the plastic from the roll. Gather both sides of the plastic film and pull up the edges to the top. Take your twisty tie and fasten the ends together about 1 inch from the top of the product.
