Beautiful Flower Basket Decoration Craft For Home
- A cardboard sheet
- Brown marker
- A pair of scissors
- A broad double-sided tape
- Small colorful flowers
- A cutter
Step 1: Painting The Basket
Take a big and wide cardboard strip and using a brown marker, draw the outline of a small basket on it. The drawing needs to display the inner side if the basket as well. Make basket patterns on the basket, inside out even on the handle. The pattern should have thick horizontal lines drawn as bridges between long vertical lines. Observe the picture below closely to understand the woven pattern.
Step 2: Cutting The Basket Out
Using a pair of scissors, cut the shape out. Work on the outer basket first shaping the whole thing properly. Cut the inside section of the holder by first making a small cut using a cutter. Cut the rest with a pair of scissors. Make clean cuts to shape the whole thing properly as shown in the picture below.
Step 3: Making More Cuts On The Basket
Using the same cutter, make a small cut on the curved line separating the inner basket from the outer one. Make a clean cut to separate the two properly. Have a look at the picture below to understand more about the step.
Step 4: Pressing On The Cut
Press hard on the cut to prepare the basket for the scissors. See the picture below for reference.
Step 5: Cutting The Insides Of The Basket
Take a pair of scissors and cut the entire line separating the inside of the basket from its outside. Be careful with the cutting and keep the rest of the basket safe from the scissors. Be careful while using the scissors and the cutter. See the image below for reference to know more about the step.
Step 6: Opening The Basket Up
Put your fingers in the opening that you just made to the basket. Open it up to make a good opening and enough space for the flowers. Check the picture below for a good reference.
Step 7: Using The Broad Double-sided Tape
Take a strip of broad double-sided tape and stick it on the inner parts of the basket. Cover the entire insides of the basket with the tape. Stick it properly and peel the top layer off.
Fitting The Flowers In The Basket
Take the colorful flowers that you collected earlier and paste the flowers on the tape. Place the flowers properly without messing up with the flowers or ripping them apart. Stuff the entire basket with flowers to decorate it. Adjust the stems in the bottom section of the basket. Observe the picture below for a good, thorough reference.
