Make "Baskets" Out of Cardboard Boxes

DIANE STROUD 3 days ago
Necessity is the mother of invention, as my mom used to say. I couldn't find the right size baskets to fit on a couple of shelves in my daughter's room, so I covered a wine box and a shoe(boot)box with 4 ply jute twine.

    I saw this on pintrest done with diaper boxes. I'm searching for some storage containers !myself.. I am tearing fabric into strips from any old things I can find you need glue and some beading if you want

    The twine is close enough to whatever they make baskets out of to make this look very realistic. My mind is trying to figure out a way to make it look woven. I'll let you know if I figure it out

    What a fantastic idea! I recently p/u some jute twine w/o any idea as to WHY but just b/c I so liked the look of it --- and I just happen to have a wine box that I didn't really know why I saved -- now I know! I'm going to try this today! Thanks!!
