I was bored sitting with my dad and decided to do something different this holiday season. Thus the Christmas Hamper was born.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials/Tools
8inch Nylon Cable Ties(zip ties)
A Laundry Hamper(must have holes big enough to fit a finger through)
Needle Nose Pliers
Step 2: The Easy Part
Take the hamper's lid off(if it has a lid) so the bottom is facing upwards.
Step 3: The Hard Part
Take your first zip tie and thread it through one of the holes(using the pliers to help pull through). Then take the end of the Christmas light with the female end and zip tie it to the hamper leaving enough loop that you can cut it off once the holidays are over. See that little tail of zip tie at the end? Snip it off with the wire cutters.
Continue to zip tie the lights, turning the hamper around until the hamper is completely covered in lights.
Step 4: Taa Daa!
You have successfully completed a Christmas hamper. Celebrate!
