One of the ways we have found is newspaper weaving...it's cheap and very versatile. It's the same as basket weaving...only cheaper as we use newspaper. :-)
Here I have displayed a simple twist weave which looks very difficult...but is in fact very easy.
I would later try and post another instructable...if requested on how to weave a magazine rack with newspaper...I actually wanted to post it up for the design contest...but that is not up for ages.... :-)
I have posted pictures which i feel would be easy to follow so please ...if you have any questions ...don't forget to ask...I'll be happy to help :-)
Step 1: Materials
a thin dowel or barbecue stick to roll
Paint if needed
Step 2: The Paper Rods
Make a lot
Step 3: The Base
Note: When your rod gets short...simply insert a new rod inside the short one and glue...wait till glue is dry and continue.
place the amount of rods you want across.
Take another rod and place it on top of the rods up most...am i confusing you ...i thought as much :-)
from now on follow pictures :-)
Continue weaving the base till you get the size you want...then clip off one of the rod and slip it inside a weave so it is concealed and glue...hold with a clip till it's firm
