How to weave a basket from jute twine
To weave such a basket, it is better to use a plastic bottle, since you can make a hole in it and fix the rope. If you want to make a larger basket, then use a three-liter glass jar, a five-liter plastic bottle or a plastic container as a base. So let’s get started!
Cut the longitudinal threads for the basket; they should be approximately twice the height of the basket. Cut off the top of the bottle for stability. Make a hole in the bottom of the bottle and pass all the ropes there, pull them out and make a knot. Distribute the ropes evenly and secure them with a rubber band.
Start braiding the longitudinal strands of jute twine, starting from the very center. Apply a little glue to secure the beginning of the weave.
Continue weaving the basket until the desired height. Please note that the sides of the basket are woven with thread folded in half. When you finish weaving, twist the remaining threads into a bundle around the edge of the basket, hide the ends inside and secure with glue. To make the basket hold its shape better, soak it in PVA glue and leave to dry.
A handle for an Easter basket can be made from wire.
Wrap the wire with jute twine, bend the ends of the wire outward in the shape of hooks, and thread it into the side walls of the basket, press the ends of the wire to the braid and secure with glue.
That’s it! The jute twine basket is ready! All that remains is to decorate it to your liking and fill it with traditional Easter delicacies.
How to weave a basket from jute twine
Kids will love this idea – a cute Easter basket! We are sure that children will be happy to take this basket with them!
For the basket you will need:
- PVA glue
- jute twine or other thick and strong thread
- glue brush
First, inflate the balloon and cover it generously with PVA glue
Wrap the ball tightly with twine and cover it again with PVA glue. Leave the workpiece until completely dry.
When the glue is completely dry and the workpiece has hardened, pierce the ball and carefully pull it out through the hole.
Cut the workpiece in half with scissors, cut out a handle for the basket from the top part
Glue the handle to the basket. Although you can do it differently: do not cut off the top part of the workpiece, but immediately cut out the handle, then the basket will be complete.
That’s basically all! The Easter basket is ready! Happy crafts and creative inspiration!
To make a basket we will need:
Any cardboard box. Choose the size and shape yourself based on your preferences and needs. I had a small parcel box from which I removed all the stickers.
- Double-sided tape or glue gun
- We will also need a ruler and a pencil.
Master class on a basket made of string or twine
Well, what a master class. While I was charging, my husband came home from work and fed me, and late in the evening I managed to weave the basket.
Next! My Internet at home is very slow, so I moved everything to Monday, a working day (after all, the Internet at work is better), and I was not at all surprised when I found out that it didn’t work, or rather it worked, but it was even worse than at my home. I tried to upload photos for half a day, and lo and behold, it appeared. So what do we need.
And we will need:
– cardboard box, desired size (in the first case, I took a shoe box, and this time from under a candy bowl);
– pen (pencil);
– scissors (construction knife);
– glue gun. everything is as in the photo, well, except for the construction knife, but it will definitely be there =)))
Take the box and cut it in this way, i.e. We make cuts in the corners.
Next we make markings on the sides. Here everyone does what they want, thin or thick. There are two “required”:
– be sure to leave at least some distance between the stripes, otherwise the thread will get jammed;
– be sure to make an ODD number of stripes, otherwise the thread will not intertwine but repeat itself.
Here, for example, I have 6 stripes on 3 side panels, and 5 on the 4th side, for a total of 23.
Take a construction knife (I told you it would appear) and cut it.
This is what happens in the end.
Well, then it’s just a matter of small things – take a thread and start winding. I secure the beginning of the thread with hot glue.
oh it’s beautiful, so don’t get distracted – let’s move on.
So we got to the edge. And the edges also need to be refined. I’m not worried about this – after all, there will be a little cover on top of me. But still. I twisted this little string (it’s next to the box)
And I crochet it to the edge.
This is how the basket turned out, unexpectedly for me – trapezoidal.
All that remains is to embroider a cute little story and sew a cover.
You can weave a basket with your own hands from ordinary twine.
To make a basket you will need:
- 20-25 meters of 5 mm twine,
- shape (deep bowl to weave around).
Make 12 pieces of rope, 65 cm each.
Arrange 11 ropes in the form of a cross: 5 ropes horizontally and 6 vertically. Secure with the twelfth rope in the middle. This will be the frame of the basket.
Now you can start weaving. To do this, secure the main one in the middle.
Weave in a circle between the frame ropes.
To make it more convenient to form the future basket, you can use any bowl and weave over it.
When the basket reaches the desired height, fasten the main thread.
The frame threads also need to be secured by wrapping each thread around the last two rows.
The fold should be directed towards the inside of the basket.
The basket is ready, you can fill it with sweets, fruits or whatever you want.
We weave mini baskets from twine. mk!
And so, now that my blanks have dried, I start painting. To the most interesting)))!!!
I painted them using the wash method, I really like this method, as it gives the desired tint. Maybe someone does the wash differently, I do it like this, apply the paint of the desired color completely to the entire product, wet the sponge in water, squeeze it out well and start washing it off! that’s how it was.
Hello, all residents of SM!!! Here I am!! Today I want to show my jute filigree work – “Kenyan Beauty”! And I am attaching MK! And again, in the middle of winter, a little bit of Africa.))) And here it is.
And I want to publish such a wonderful poem dedicated by Nadezhda Denisova to me and my work! :
“Here is the twine, and here is the oilcloth,
Let’s start our lesson.
Twist, twist, bend,,
African women with a wondrous look,
It didn’t open up to us right away,
You need to put your hands in,
Fix plump lips,
Glue earrings for a month,
And don’t forget the hairstyle!
All is ready! Super! Wonder!
African woman is simply CLASS!
Hands of Julia, beautiful!
They shocked us, of course!”
Thank you Nadezhda from the bottom of my heart!!!!!
The box needs to be cut and glued so that we have a bottom with walls on 4 sides.
Next, using scissors or a stationery knife, the walls must be cut into strips.
I draw your attention to two mandatory conditions:
- The number of stripes must be odd. Then we can weave the basket correctly. I ended up with 23 strips.
- Small gaps must be left between the strips. This is done so that the thread does not get “chewed” during weaving. I left gaps of about 4-5 mm.
When the basket blank is ready, we can proceed directly to weaving. The end of the thread must be secured so that it does not dangle. I did this using a stapler.
And then we weave, weave, weave…
When we have woven to the top edge of the basket, the end of the twine also needs to be secured. You can use glue, a gun or, like me, a stapler.
To decorate the top of the twine basket, I used beige lace. I glued it with a glue gun – first from the outside, and then from the inside.
I cut out the bottom for the basket from the lid of the box. I pasted the appropriate material. I put the bottom in the basket.
I decided to decorate the lower outer edge of the basket with a ribbon made of air loops knitted from twine. I also glued it on with a glue gun.
That’s it. Our twine basket is ready.
You can also decorate it in different ways.
