DIY »Basket with Rattan«


  • Woven cane 45x50cm
  • Holzspan: Bastelspan 1 Rolle
  • Hot Glue Gun: Set with Glue Sticks
  • Wooden disk: 6 pieces
  • Leather strap or a piece of ribbon Leather strap 1 meter
  • Scissors


  1. Take your Viennese netting and wrap it around your wooden disk once to gage the length you need.

  2. Add around 1cm as area for the glue. Now cut your woven cane.

  3. Use a hot glue gun to attach the bottom all the way around your disk. Trim off excess cane if necessary.

  4. The base for your basket is already done! For a clean edge, take some wood shavings and glue them around the top rim using your hot glue gun.

  5. Now for the lid: glue one smaller and one slightly bigger wooden disk on top of each other.

  6. Then drill a hole into the middle of both disks.

  7. Use a leather strap or a nice piece of ribbon and string it through the hole you just drilled. Simply glue the bottom ends to the inside of the lid.
