DIY : Woven newspaper basket

No need to throw away the newspaper after reading it , especially now that you know you can use them to create a beautiful basket!

To make a woven newspaper basket you will need:

  • Newspaper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Ribbon
  • Tacky Glue

Start by cutting a two-page newspaper spread in half.

Fold the newspaper across horizontally with a one-inch width.

Once you have enough strips, start weaving ; Weave from the center outwards, making it as big as you want.

When the bottom of your basket is large enough, fold what’s left of your strips up and start weaving the sides, using tape as you go.

When the sides are as tall as you want them to be, fold the strips left standing over the top and tape them to the inside of the basket.

Now, use tacky glue to glue a strip around the inside top edge to make it look nicer.

You could also weave some ribbon through the top.
