How to Make Bucket From Recycled Newspaper I Best Out of Waste

6 Materials
I developed this bucket in order to recycle newspapers. It may not be very impressive, but it is easy and can be made quickly. You can use it to store your make products etc.


Material Required:


The materials required for this project are:
1. Old newspaper
2. Scissor
3. Stick or brush
4. Glue
5. Hot glue gun
6. Acrylic colors
7. Decorative items


Strips of newspaper


Now cut the newspaper into strips like this




Now, take a stick or brush and put it on one side corner of the newspaper and wrap the stick with the newspaper with the help of fingers




When you reach the end, apply the glue and gently remove the stick




Make a lot of newspaper stick like this




Now flatten the stick with the help of fingers as sown in picture




Now with the help of a cap (I use here the cap of glue bottle), roll the newspaper stick onto it like this to form a ring

Make a lot of ring like this




Make a lot of rings and with the help of hot glue gun, stick together the rings in the form of flower like this




Take another paper stick and with the help of hot glue gun, wrap it around the flower shape. It requires 2 to 3 newspaper stick to give the desired width

It will look like this




Stick the newspaper rings around the flower shape with glue gun




Now, repeat the same process as before, stick the newspaper stick at top of the bucket like this




Now apply the glue and water mix so that it retains it shape and allow it to dry for 1 to 2 hours
