This is so cute ...it would look so great as a center piece for a table...you could keep a plant or pot pori...
you could even use it to hold your knickknacks!
Step 2: Thick and Thin Rods
You need to make thin rods and for the base of the wheel barrow.
To make thin rods..take a centerfold paper and fold into four...cut and open up...then keep a skewer at an angle and roll tightly.
for more details on how to roll newspaper rods...check out this tutorial
You would need about 3 or 4 thick rods for the legs and handles.
For thicker rods...cut newspaper at center fold and then roll at an angle and glue....please check pictures for clear reference.
Step 3: Weave the Base
Intersect 4 rods as picture...then gradually build up by weaving rods from the sides and top...in and out in and out :-)
Once you make the base the size you want....fold up every other rod up. surrond the upright rods with another rod and glue and close it up...hold with a clamp.
Take another rod and wave with the other rods in and out in and out. please refer picture.
Use one more rod to build up the walls of the basket.
Now fold over the excess rod and cut it off...make sure the fold end inbetween the parallel rods.
glue and hold with clamps.
To conceal and neaten...cut about a 1" wide strip of paper and fold it into 3 lengthwise.
Now weave it where the rods have been cut so that the cuts would be concealed.
please refer to pictures
Your basket is done...now lets make it a wheelbarrow!
