Do you want to learn how to create a basket of conventional newspapers? My experience suggests that it is the power of anyone. The below detailed instructions to help me prove it clearly.

From the preparation of tools to paint the finished product

Making baskets newspaper tubes can be divided into four stages:

  1. Preparation props;
  2. Manufacture of tubes;
  3. basketry;
  4. decorating baskets.

At the same time I want to note that the second - the long and complicated. Now, let's start:

Old newspapers - the basic material is made baskets, by which the price of its manufacturing out incredibly low

  • PVA glue with a brush;
  • Bank, a bottle or box, Depending on what kind of shape you're planning to weave a basket;
  • A long knitting needle 1.5-2 mm thick. You can also use a wooden skewer;
  • The cardboard sheet;
  • ruler;
  • Stationery knife or scissors;
  • Rubber;
  • Acrylic paints suitable caramel.

It is also recommended to prepare the glue gun. This tool is optional, and not everyone has the farm, but the work will go faster with it, and the result will be more accurate.

table_pic_att14931696537 grease with glue the remainder of the tip paper and fix it to get the tube.

I recommend to twist the newspaper strip around the spokes at an angle of 45-60 degrees. Then finished tube will have optimal strength and elasticity.

The optimal twist angle of the newspapers around the needles - 45-60 degrees

Do not worry about the fact that the diameter of the tubes is different at different ends. In the process of weaving them periodically need to renew by inserting one into the other, there is such a feature, and play into the hands.
