DIY: Making a box into a basket
Keeping a tidy household requires storage space and storage solutions. Unfortunately, most storage solutions for everyday items can cost a pretty penny. If you are looking for a cute but affordable storage solution then see below for our step-by-step instructions.
What you will need:
- An ordinary cardboard box
- 4 ply jute
- A hot glue gun
- Glue sticks
- A pair of scissors
- Inexpensive muslin fabric
Cut off the flaps of the cardboard box using a pair of scissors.
Use hot glue, from your glue gun, on the outside of the box to paste the jute to the cardboard.
Continue wrapping the box to the rim, with jute with the aid of your hot glue gun.
Finish the jute off nicely when you reach the rim of the box.
For this step you will need to make use of your sewing skills. Use them to fashion a liner for the inside of the box, using inexpensive muslin fabric. Naturally, it might be worth your while investing in a more expensive fabric with a beautiful pattern.
