These DIY no-sew baskets are both fun and easy to make! Use them to store things such as craft supplies, washi tape, thread, pens, etc.

Instructions

  1. Small 2019 03 25 020134 no sew mini baskets

    To begin, apply a small amount of glue to the end of your rope. Curl it around until it creates a small circle, as per the image.

    Continue to curl the rope around itself, applying plenty of hot glue as you go.

    Once your base is as wide as your jar, rest the jar on top of the rope. Wrap the rope up and around the jar. Apply plenty of hot glue to the rope as you go. To prevent the hot glue from sticking to the rope, take the time to remove/shuffle the jar around as you go. Keep wrapping the rope around the jar until you've almost reached the desired height.

    Now it’s time to make the handles! Cut a 10cm/4″ (approx) piece of jute rope. Apply glue to one end of the rope and stick it to the inside of your basket. Loop the jute rope around and glue it at the other end. Repeat on the opposite side to create two handles.

    Next, apply a generous amount of glue to the main rope (the white one). Glue it over the top of your handles. Press firmly to ensure everything is nice and secure. Wrap the rope around the basket 2 more times. Then, tuck the ‘tail’ of the rope on the inside of the basket, gluing it to secure it (see picture). And with that, construction is complete.

    The final step is to decorate your baskets. You can find the designs I used here ( https://temperancerose.com/easy-no-sew-baskets/ ). Print the PDF on to iron-on paper. Following the instructions included with your iron-on paper, use your iron to transfer the image to a rectangle of drop cloth. Use your hot glue gun to glue the drop cloth to a rectangle of burlap, as per the image.

    Finally, use your hot glue gun to glue the fabric rectangle to the basket. And with that, your little no-sew baskets are finished
