Making Your Hamper From Scratch

If you’re feeling super adventurous, you could even challenge yourself to make the hamper from scratch. All you’ll need is some basket-weaving materials (reeds or rattan usually works best), scissors, clothes pins or clamps and any decorative elements you plan on using.

Start by creating the base of the basket, taking one long piece of weaving material and forming a circle or oval shape. Overlap the ends and secure them together by weaving them through the base or by using your clothespins/clamps.

Next, take another long piece of the weaving material and thread it under the base. Keep the tension firm, repeating this process until you’ve built the sides of your basket to the desired height. Tuck the ends of the material inside the basket and weave them through the existing weave to secure them into place. Once you’ve finished, it’s time to add some decorations. Perhaps you could attach a rosette that says ‘Best Dad Ever!’, or some ribbons in your dad’s favourite colours – whatever you do, make sure it’s unique to the father figure in your life.
