A basket of newspaper tubes with your own hands: a master class with step by step photos

Weaving baskets of newspaper tubes, which everyone can step through, is a very interesting and even exciting process. By fastening newspaper rods to each other, we get the object of the desired shape and size in a completely empty space. What can be more exciting?

Before you make a basket of newspaper tubes, you need to learn how to make the tubes themselves.

To do this, we take a simple newspaper and add up its in several layers.

We arm with a wooden thin stick and glue. We wind the strip on the tip of the stick, directing it diagonally, and fix the tip with a drop of glue. fix the rest of the strip, glue the tip again, and gently press down the resulting tube from the wooden base. To make the tube go off easily, do not wind it too tightly - let it remain small between it and the stick th space.

Make as many of these tubes as possible. Let them stay in stock. What you will encounter with the lack of material, when you will be absorbed with might and main by the process of weaving. The length of the rods can be changed by cutting them off or by stuffing one tube into another. The pointed tip facilitates this task.

Before weaving a basket, from newspaper tubes we make main frame.To do this, we put three tubes vertically, and three - perpendicular to them, on top. Two more are laid on the top diagonally, and two more - also diagonally, but in a different direction. We fix all the tubes with glue.

Now the fun begins. Between the bars of the base we begin to weave twigs that will form the bottom and side walls.

We pass through so that one the stem of the foundation was above the implanted vine, and the second - under it. The second newspaper vine is put in another order: the first rod is under it, and the second one is on top.

Gradually we have a round bottom. The closer you put the bars to each other, the stronger the bottom will turn out.

On the last row, we bend the branches bases up and begin to weave the walls of the basket. To make it easier to workcollect branches at the top of the gum or tying gum.

We extend the handle to the desired size and attach it to the opposite edge.

To make it look beautiful, we will braid it with transverse rods, we do not let the rods be very long, and fasten them by the type of knot: we wind around the central vine and then bind each other with the other side branches. We weave the first end of the vine.
