How to Make Your Own Woven Hamper

Woven hampers are a great way to keep your laundry and other belongings organized. They are usually made from woven rope, wicker or cotton and can be purchased at many different prices.

A woven hamper can be used for clothes, but they are also a good way to store blankets or toys. They are versatile and can be purchased in many styles, colors and sizes.

Making your own woven basket is a simple and affordable DIY project. A bodkin (a simple pointed tool for separating the weave) is needed, but if you don’t have one you can use a stick or a nail instead.

Laundry Made Easy: The Benefits of Hamper Baskets and How to Choose the Right One

First, make sure that you have all the materials you need for the project. You’ll need a cardboard base, newspaper sticks and some fabric. You can buy this at any craft supply shop.

Once you have everything you need, begin to weave the basket. Begin with the corners and pull or push down as you go, keeping the spokes upright. You want them to be parallel and not splayed out, or your basket will lose its shape.

Continue until you’ve reached the desired height of the basket. As you go, attach and weave new reeds in each spoke. If you are using a reed that is too long, simply adjust it to fit.

The next step is to insert stakes in the sides of the basket, but note that too many can be a problem. You’ll need to determine how many stakes are necessary for a tight weave and you’ll want them to be evenly spaced.
