DIY Grocery Bag Easter Basket
What to do with all those grocery bags tucked under my sink?! I find that there is something quite endearing about brown kraft grocery bags and the up-cycling piece of my brain has been dancing around ideas for a while. I have been seeing a few variations of woven paper baskets around the web, so weaving and Easter basket from recycled paper bags seem to be a perfect solution! (INSTRUCTIONS FOR GROCERY BAG EASTER BASKET) 1) Using full size paper grocery bag, remove handles (•note some do not come with handles) and cut down center seam. 2) Mark 1.75 inch strips (top to bottom) and trim. 3) Fold each strip lengthwise into thirds. 4) 2 of your strips will create a handle. 5) Weave the bottom of the basket using 6X6 strips. 6) Trim 2 of your strips in half. 7) Fold the loose side strips of your basket to prepare them for weaving in the 3 long strips. 8) On 2 opposite sides of the basket, trim the 2 center strips 3 inches long.
