Before throwing anything away, think carefully about whether it can be turned into a useful, and maybe a creative thing. With a creative approach and wit, even a cracked bucket can be a masterpiece. Time and material for such an alteration is not required much.
It was decided to turn our bucket into an original basket. Having cut off a bucket on height we get rid of a chip. We outline the bottom and make blanks for inserts.
We wrap the inserts and glue them, not forgetting to stretch the fabric.
To give the basket volume, wrap it outside with a layer of padding polyester and trim the edges.
From above on a synthetic winterizer we lay a fabric layer which will become a cover.
For finishing we take a strip of fabric, the height of which will exceed the height of the cut bucket. The length of the cut must be greater than the circumference of the bucket by at least one third. This will make a beautiful drape inside and set the volume outside.
Glue the bucket from the inside, evenly distributing the fabric. Insert the bottom inside and glue it. Mate sticking outside.
At the junction of the bottom and the bucket we let in a decorative cord.
We gather a strip of contrast fabric with embroidery with a embroidery and glue in a circle, raising the upper frill.
We use fabric trim for a bow.
We supplement the basket with a handle and admire the result.
You can fill such a basket with anything. The design may be different. It all depends on what remnants of fabric are in stock.
