This is my first instructable! I decided to enter the Zip Tie Weekly Challenge!

Basically using Zip Ties and Anchors we will build a basket for holding stuff.

I personally use it to hold my solder, wick, and electrical tape.

Step 1: Supplies

Okay I used Zip Tie anchors and Zip Ties

16 X Anchors (1" X 1")
40 X Zip Ties (7 3/8 in long)

I guess you could use any size depending on how big or small you want to make your basket!!
How cool, just did it
Hope you won the contest
Since these are intended to be disposable, temporary containers, this is a GREAT way to make a non-disposable container. Way to go, BladeFrye! Now if we could only make them more attractive.
As my daughter says, "Add rainbows and glitter, it makes EVERYTHING pretty!" Although I'm not sure that will work here, hmmmm maybe some Krylon Spray Paint, and an entry into the 2nd Annual Krylon Summer Contest!!!
5***** Just rated it!
I hate to see zip ties wasted, sorry but I would have gave 5 stars had you made this of something useless. For the cost of the zip ties you could go to the dollar tree and buy a basket for less. Or make one from useless junk.
Boooo! its a fun little project, and yes yer right.. but Boooo!<br><br>zip ties are cheap as dirt, in my old profesion of automations technition, they were often times used as temporary tie downs for any sort of thing that needed to be tied down. we would use electrical tape to tie down wire harnesses as it made pulling a 500+ foot long harness so much easier.. but I assure you, if you think THIS is wasteful of zip ties, than I hope you never go to a work site anytime soon.. <br>this project exemplifies some of the weird uses we would come up with the things during hold times.
Well said Beergnome!<br><br>Ray Jr., I would also like to point out that zip ties are used to &quot;hold&quot; things in place, well these ones are holding items in their place (in effect), they are just not &quot;tied&quot; as they were specifically intended to be!
Take a breather, gees. The instructable its self is great, well planed, nice pictures, and a 5 star instructable. I guess I just never thought that stuff should be that disposable.
Thanks Ray!!
lol....! This is an awesome ible!
I do a similar thing to mend my silverware baskets in the dishwasher. It works really well and its really cheap.
I've had to do that as well! They make good &quot;cheap and easy&quot; repairs for many things!
Very nice instructable, very clean cut and firm, easy to follow with outstanding results, keep up with the good work .5/5.
Thank You!
