{it's in the news}

Oooh, all the nifty and thrifty things you can create from old newspaper!
This time I decided to weave them into a little basket. It turned out to actually be pretty sturdy, despite the flimsy newspaper pages.

Materials you’ll need:

  • an old newspaper (finally a purpose for that free junk mail)
  • string or thread
  • clothespins, paper clips, bobby pins or whatever else you find that can keep the paper together
  • scissors (even better if you have a rotary cutter and cutting mat!)
  • staples?
{it's in the news}

pic 1: Find old newspaper.
pic 2: Cut newspaper into 20 strips. I cut them into 2-newspaper-column-wide strips, which turned out to be about 1 3/4 in (≈ 7,5 cm). It really depends on how small you want the weave pattern to be.
I kept the length of the newspaper as is. You can trim it down later on.
pic 3: 20 strips of newspaper.
pic 4: Fold each strips in half lengthwise. Fold them again, into quarters and again, into eights. Make sure to crease tightly, so you have some sturdy and crisp strips.
pic 5: 20 ready folded strips of newspaper waiting to be weaved.

{it's in the news}
pic 1: Start weaving the strips, 10 strips in each direction.
pic 2: Square base of 10 x 10 strips.
pic 3: Twine string or thread (I only had packing string on hand which was a little too stiff) around the edges to help you mark the base and also to help the base stay in it’s shape a little better. You interweave the string just like you did with the newspaper, one over and one under.
pic 4: Square base with weaved string.
pic 5: Now off to the little difficult part. You take one of the four sides of the pattern of 10 strips and divide them in half. Beginning with the center, cross them and weave out to the edge. Don’t worry if the weave pattern is not very tight yet. You can tighten it later on by gently pulling on the strips.
Do the same with the other three sides. Join the 4 sides by weaving them together.
{it's in the news}
pic 1: Secure the weaved strips with the pins.
pic 2: Start folding the strips inward, interweaving once.
pic 3: It will look a little messy, but you’ll cut the access strips off later on.
pic 4: Staple the top part of the interweaved strips.
pic 5: Cut off the access strips.
pic 6: This is what it will look like with staples.

I ended up not liking the staples in my basket and took them out again. The other way to finish of the edge is weaving the loose ends into the sides of the basket.

Update: Since there were a few comments saying they were having a hard time following step 5 of the weaving instructions, I tried drawing it out to help visualize it better. I hope this helps! ;)

  14. cool idea! Love it!

  15. very cool! love this, and it would be a fun project with older kids!

  16. this is so cute!

  17. Oh that’s a fun project. And even more fun if you get to fill it with candy. :)

  18. That’s pretty neat! I just used an old newspaper to make a Valentine Garland (posted on my blog 2/1 if you’re interested) It’s great to use some of that “junk” stuff for a good purpose!

  19. Hopewell Creek Designs says:

    What a fun idea,I love using items that would be headed for the trash bin.I will have to try this.Thanks for sharing it.

  20. abeachcottage says:

    Really cute. You are so creative. If wanted, the finished product can also be painted?

  21. {nifty thrifty things} says:

    @ abeachcottage: Thank you for your comments! I might try a colored version of the newspaper version. I would just make sure the paint is not too watery. ;) For this one, I liked that you could make out single words and playing with the colors of the newspaper.

  22. Etcetorize says:

    Nice project. Looks like you need alot of patience for this one. Great job~

  23. Rachael@Lovely Crafty Home says:

    Wow that is so neat! I’ve never done any weaving really, but this looks so cute and simple I may have to try it. Thanks for linking up :)

  26. Madigan at madiganmade says:

    This is very cool! I don’t know if I’d have the patience to make one, but yours looks great!

  27. MessyMissy says:

    Those pictures are so CUTE!! I wonder how large a basket you could make? Maybe even use some mod podge to seal it and have it as a paper recycling basket (or a small one for a q-tip holder?).…okay, you got my brain working. Basically, I LURVE it!!

  28. Emily {WhipperBerry} says:

  30. {nifty thrifty things} says:

    Thank you everyone!! I love reading your comments!

    @ MessyMissy: I’ve actually thought about making a larger scale basket and just glueing the strips together to get twice the length.. I will post, if I actually do. ;)

    @ Emily: I know I already thanked you on WhipperBerry, but I’m so excited!! Thank you so much for featuring me!!

  31. cool, I remember doing this with gum wrappers as a kid. domesticdeadline.blogspot.com

    OMG! Such a great tutorial! I’ve been seeing the recycled magazine baskets, etc. for awhile and never considered making one. Yours looks amazing. Thanks for sharing.

  34. Anonymous says:

    I LOVE IT! We used to make them when I was a kid in Miami from coconut palm fronds! We wove them while they were green and when they dried, they kept the shape forever! I seem to remember using clothespins to hold things in place while I wove the strips. Since I won’t be climbing palm trees anymore, and I like the colors and possibilities of the paper, I think I will give your tutorial a try! Thanks for the memory jog too!

  35. Great toot~ I have always wanted to try this.
    (since the days when we did this with gum wrappers)

    Lovely idea! Unfortunately I cannot understand how you build up the sides :S the instructions are unclear. (Pic 5 of the second group of pictures)could you explain it further or post some step by step pictures? Thanks!

  49. {nifty thrifty things} says:

    Anonymous, I wish I could have replied in an email. I hope you’ll still read this. :)
    This 5th step was kind of hard to capture — next time it gets tricky like this I’ll make sure to have my hubby take some pictures..
    I’ll try to explain it (and please have some mercy — English is not my mother tongue..). After intertwining the strips of paper (step 4), you’ll end up with 10 strips in each direction. Now you need to divide those 10 strips on one side up into 5 each and start weaving strip 5 through 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 and strip 6 through 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1. Next weave strip 4 through 7, 8, 9 and 10 and strip 7 through 4, 3, 2 and 1. Then strip 3 and 8 and so on.
    Do the same with the other 3 remaining sides.
    I hope this helps. Let me know if you still have trouble with it and I’ll try my best to explain in a different way. :)
    xoxo,
    Vanessa

  50. Alex Eamonson says:

    I’m sooooo confused about building up the sides. When I follow the instructions you give, I end up with 4 separate corners and I have no idea how to connect them. Could you please please please do a step by step or even better a video tutorial! I’m itching to make many of these for my job as a teaching assistant.
    Thanks x

  51. {nifty thrifty things} says:

    I am really sorry I won’t be able to do another tutorial on this until I’m done writing on my Thesis.. One more week! :)
    I hope you understand and I’ll try to give a better explanation of how to build up the sides.
    xoxo from Germany,

    beautifully done weaving

  53. S. Meisner says:

    Made one of these while I was bored at work! I didn’t use string and it turned out pretty good, but I didn’t have pins or paperclips or anything so that made it a little difficult. I ended up using staples in a few strategic places but that made it difficult to pull some parts tight. I also had a hard time folding the tops at first, I wasn’t quite sure how to do it. Eventually I got the hang of it though so I had to make another.…

    The second one turned out MUCH better. I used magazine paper, gluing 2 strips together to make it longer, and then only folded into 4ths instead of 8ths and only did an 8×8 base. I also found it quite helpful to use a credit card to really smooth the folds out. Worked wonderfully! (I also had 5 paperclips to work with, helped tremendously!) I love the look of the magazine paper, and I think for the next one I’m going to get colored paperclips and use those to secure the tops instead of using staples.

    Anyway, just wanted to share! This is a really fun project!

  56. I am on step 5 and have tried every possible weave with every end of newspaper aside from the right one. I keep ending up with a slit down the corner of the bowl that is not weaved together.
    please help…

    wow love it! I just saw these at Hobby Lobby…looked like they came from China or Japan. Now I can try making my own..thanks~!

  60. I love this little project! HOWEVER step 5 I’m lost. Instructions are a bit to vague. I’m all twisted up like a pretzel. Not giving up yet though. =) Looking forward to some clarity on weaving the ONE divided side. Start in the middle? Counting from the edge is strip 1? eeks!

  61. I just recently made a little basket out of a grocery sack similar to your basket. I would love to be able to print the directions off without all the comments and such. Do you have a copy of the directions you could just e-mail me. I would like to try making them as my son is getting married in sept and we are looking for ideas like yours to put the candy favors in as their theme is rustic and natural. thanks Sissy

    • Sissy,
      Thank you for your sweet comment. These baskets will be so cute for your sons wedding!
      Unfortunately I don’t have the instructions saved in any other way than here. You could copy and paste the instructions to a word-document and print it out from there to keep all the comments from printing out as well. :)
      Have a wonderful week!

    Thank you for your inspiration!

    Awesome. I would like to try it with magazine pages. I suppose that would be quite small wouldn’t it?

  68. hey yours looks amazing but the weaving instructions are still really hard for me to follow! the base is easy but then i get hopelessly lost. i’m going to keep trying though!!

    • I’m so sorry it’s giving you a hard time.. It’s so hard to explain if you can’t just go ahead and show it first hand. I hope you will get the hang of it after a few more attempts, though. Don’t give up! ;)
      Have a wonderful week!

      Ich hoffe Du hattest ein wundervolles Wochenende!
      Liebe Grüße,
      Vanessa

  72. Wow, yours looks so nice and smoothly finished!

    A note for future crafters: I deviated from the instructions and figured I’d give this a try with fewer pieces per side thinking it would make a smaller basket but of relatively equal proportions. NOPE! Mine came out a bit more like a pencil cup than a basket! I used 6 strips per side instead of 10. The weave also has gaps where I split the sides in half to start step 5. The paper just very clearly parts ways there and I can’t see any amount of adjustment closing those gaps. Other than that, the project looks good… :p

    The tutorial was relatively easy to follow, anyway. Thanks so much for posting it with lots of pictures for those of us who are bad at following written directions! :)

  73. Oh man, it does look so good, but I’m just not able to assemble the sides. After weaving the edges I got stuck. “Join the 4 sides by weaving them together.” is too few information for me. I tried everything, but the basket doesn’t turn out. I don’t get the sides together :(
    Any more hints or some step by step guidance?
    Cheers mico

  74. Hi Vanessa,
    i thought this little basket is a cute idea for little Christmas presents. I tried with 6 stripes of glossy advertisement-paper. I did NOT work :D
    I also think there might be a mistake in the drawing. It almost worked when I inter-weaved the stripes of the SAME side. I hope you understand what I mean. …
    Since I am living in northern Germany too, I describe it in German again ;) :
    Also, das Ineinander-Weben hat gar nicht funktioniert. 6 recht kurze Streifen von den Werbebeilagen aus Zeitungen waren aber vielleicht auch daran Schuld :D ‘Aus deiner Zeichnung ist zu erkennen, dass du vier Streifen einer Seite mit vier Streifen der anderen Seite verwebst. Das ging bei mir nicht, als ich das versuchte, klabbte sich diese Seite quasi wie ein Deckel über den Boden des Körbchens. Aber wenn ich die 4 Streifen der einen Seite mit den anderen 4 Streifen der gleichen (!) Seite verwebe„ kommt es dem Körbchen nahe! (Wie gesagt, bei mir waren es nur je drei und irgendwie rutschig und kurz, ich starte aber noch einen Zeitungsversuch…)

    Herzliche Grüße und schon einmal gesegnete Weihnachten!

  75. This is the second time I’ve been to your site. Thanks for explaining more details.

  76. I love the project, but will be changing some of your instructions. It is interwoven, not interweaved. The strips are in excess, not access. Since English is not your native language, and we have many strange words and phrases, I hope you won’t take offense at my corrections.

    I weave; my item is woven.
    I have access to a fine library. (I can get to it)
    There is an excess of words in this book. (Too many, or too much; more than is required.)

  77. This is super neat! I’m going to have to make a few for holding items at my flea market booth.

  78. This is cute, I want to try this out with my girl scouts troop.

  79. Hey,
    I’m german and my English isn’t very well, but I’ve got some questions:
    –How to use the thread? I don’t understand this step, it would be really nice, if you could explain it abridged :)
    –How flexible and strong (hope, it’s the rkight word here^^) is the basket?
    –What das “nifty” and “thrifty” mean?

    • Hey Lia!
      Den Faden muss man nicht zwangsläufig benutzen. Er hilft nur zu sehen wo die Unterseite des Körbchens ist, während man die Seiten weiter webt. Der Faden wird ein mal ringsum gewebt. Einmal drunter, einmal drüber — ein mal um’s Rechteck. Nachdem das Körbchen fertig ist, kann der Faden wieder rausgezogen werden.
      Ich benutze das Körbchen für Kleinigkeiten auf dem Schreibtisch — Tesarollen, Büroklammern etc.
      Nifty bedeutet raffiniert/geschickt und thrifty sparsam/günstig.
      Ich hoffe Du hast ein tolles Wochenende!
      Liebe Grüße,
      Vanessa

      • Sorry, wusste nicht, dass du deutsche bist oder deutsch kannst :D Jetzt hab ich das endlich kapiert, vielen, vielen DAnk für diese tolle Idee und die schnelle Antwort!!!!

  80. Love this idea. You could use just about anything, such as fabric. But it’s woven, and interwoven. Not meaning to criticize, but it drove me nuts. Being a grammar nut. Thanks for the intricate detailing at the end.

  81. Andria Vincent says:

    My dad used to make purses like this out of cigarette packs. This was when I was a little kid and now I“m 44. I always wondered how he did it. Now I sort of know.

  82. Jane Watson says:

    Great idea. You can also do this with packaging tape.
    Please note that WOVEN is the past tense of weave, NOT weaved.

  83. Hi Vanessa,

    I am trying to build your basket, but when it comes to step number 5 of weaving the sides together I get lost, please help. I can understand weaving the one side together, but not connecting the two sides together. Please Help!

    • I’m sorry you’re having difficulties with that step. It is a bit tricky. :(
      I’ll try to explain it (and please have some mercy — English is not my mother tongue..). After intertwining the strips of paper (step 4), you’ll end up with 10 strips in each direction. Now you need to divide those 10 strips on one side up into 5 each and start weaving strip 5 through 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 and strip 6 through 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1. Next weave strip 4 through 7, 8, 9 and 10 and strip 7 through 4, 3, 2 and 1. Then strip 3 and 8 and so on. Do the same with the other 3 remaining sides. I hope this helps. xoxo, Vanessa

  84. I am actually confuse at the point 5. Can you help me vanessa?
    Ps: I am the greatest fan of your.

    • Thank you for your sweet message, Alina! :)

  85. Jane Metzger says:

    I did something similar40 years ago, but I uses grocery bags. I didn’t have to fold them so much ‚because the paper was thicker. Fun project, especially for someone with very little money.

  86. I really think that you are a very good crafter and this project is wonderful.! What I don’t like is the way “MAMA G” came down on you for your grammar!! Everyone is not from the same part of the world and sometimes we use our own slang and grammar that we know and understand,. That does not give another person (who thinks she is more educated than the rest of us peons) the right to ridicule anyone! “MAMA G” was cruel and very rude to make these comments:
    (from MAMA G) : I love the project, but will be changing some of your instructions. It is interwoven, not interweaved. The strips are in excess, not access. Since English is not your native language, and we have many strange words and phrases, I hope you won’t take offense at my corrections.
    I weave; my item is woven.
    I have access to a fine library. (I can get to it)
    There is an excess of words in this book. (Too many, or too much; more than is required.)

    I take offense even if no one else does! You “MAMA G” have no right to belittle or berate anyone because of their “English”. Neither do you “MAMA G” have the right to correct anyone’s grammar! Just getting this off my chest and feeling sad for anyone who comes in contact with you because you are way TOO smart for the rest of us!
