There is always an opportunity to do somethingoriginal with their own hands, instead of buying it in the store. For example, if you need a capacious basket, then making it is quite simple, and most importantly, cheap. For its weaving will require:
- ordinary newspapers that are read and lie idle.
- knitting needle or hook.
Execution In order for the future basket to havethe correct head start, you need to make a frame of cardboard, which we will weave. You can take a ready-made cardboard box that has remained from any purchase, but you can make it of the desired size, cutting out the cardboard plates of the right size and gluing the walls and the bottom in such a way that the box turns out. To roll the tubes from magazines or newspapers you need a regular knitting needle. We take the newspaper turn and fold it across into 4 parts, cut at the folding points. Each of the 4 parts is wound on the spoke. To prevent the tube from unwinding, we lubricate the remaining tip of the newspaper with glue. To create a basket you need not one hundred such tubes. So please be patient! The next stage of work is braiding the cardboard box with tubes. During the weaving process, the length of the tube ends,then you need to insert the thin end of the tube into its wide end and continue the weaving. So step by step the walls of the basket will grow. Finish the weaving. We glue all the sticking tubes. With the help of a hook or a knitting needle, the protruding tips of the tubes can be weaved into work. Then cover the finished product with a primer and givedry. After that, apply the paint over the primer. To mix the colors you like, use a plastic mold, on the bottom of which you can put a bag. The package is very convenient to use, because you can just throw it away at the end of the work. Paint with a round construction brush, it is much more convenient to paint than a sponge. After the ink dries completely, we cover the basket of newspaper tubes with acrylic lacquer. Your basket is ready! But you can refine it with a tissue tab. We sew it according to the basket parameters. The material can be taken with a cotton pattern. When cutting out, take into account that the tissue insert should have a sufficient size lapel. We insert the tab in the basket, carefully spread the lapel and - get a stylish and cute product! From newspaper tubes, you can make many crafts that will perform any functions and decorate the room.
