How To Create An Upcycled Basket With Old Paper Bags


People have been weaving baskets basically since the dawn of time, gathering whatever natural materials they could find to create compact and beautiful pieces. Different civilizations have used reeds, grasses, canes, or bamboo for their baskets. Today, we’re going to forage something simpler: old paper bags.

For this DIY upcycling project, we’ll be creating a square paper basket perfect for apples, oranges, or any grab-and-go snacks in your kitchen. You don’t even need to make a shopping trip for supplies, since this craft relies on common household items. The technique is simple and tested — basket weavers have been practicing it for centuries and trust us, you can, too.
