How to make Paper Baskets (Newspaper craft)

How easy it is to weave a basket using newspaper! It’s so simple to roll paper tubes out of newspaper and then weave the tubes into a basket. You can bet I will be making plenty of these faux wicker baskets for future projects, as well as for storage in the home.


  • Divide a sheet of newspaper in 4 parts.
  • Roll using a thin stick to make paper tubes.
  • Paint these tubes to get colored tubes.
  • Take a circular container
  • and trace it on cardboard.
  • Paste two tubes at one corner,
  • and one tube each at the remaining corners.
  • At one corner there is an extra tube.
  • Bend it along the edge,
  • then bend the next one along the edge
  • and so on.
  • After completing one row,
  • place the container and weave around it.
  • Apply glue for the last row.
  • Insert the last tube below the tube in front.
  • Let it dry
  • and cut extra length.
