Introduction: Zip Tie Fruit Bowl
This zip tie fruit bowl is an easy DIY. Taking only an hour and a half to make, anyone can have a new table center piece!
~ 8 inch zip ties
~ 6 inch zip ties
For the the project, I used around 40 8 inch zip ties and around 100 6 inch zip ties.
To create one section of the bowl, you will need 6 8inch zip ties and 12 6 inch zip ties. Start by closing the 8 inch zip tie and 6 of the 6 inch zip tie. Then, cut off the extra. Place the smaller zip tie inside the larger one. Take a 6 inch tie and zip together 2 large and a smaller tie. Repeat this step until you have fully closed the ties together creating a flower shape. Use the pictures as a guide.
To make the base of the bowl, I used the same technique, but only used 5 larger zip ties.
In total, I made 5 flowers that have 6 petals and 1 flower that has 5 petals.
I started building the bowl by attaching the flowers to the base with 2 zip ties per flower.
Next, I angled the flowers so I could attach another zip tie. If you look at the picture, I added an arrow to show where I placed the zip tie. Repeat this to connect the other flowers together.
Start tightening the ties to get the shape you want. I think that this is the hardest part because it can be hard to keep some of the zip ties at the right angle.
