Steps To Make A Handmade Jute Bag

Step 1- Prepare the cover of the harpic bottle

DIY Handmade Jute Bag

We need to prepare the cover of the bottle and so let’s start by using the buckram cloth. Take the cloth and mark measurements where the width is 10-12 inch while the length is 5 inches. Mark these measurement 1.5 inches above the base of the cloth. We are making this DIY jute bag using an old harpic bottle, so now get the bottle and use this cloth on the bottle. Place the bottle in such a way that the bottom of the bottle fits in the 5 inch height of the marked cloth.

Now troll the bottle in the buckram cloth and stick it with glue gun. Seal the cloth from every side using the glue gun. Let this glue sick properly. This bottle provides thickness and a proper shape to the bag.

Step 2- Seal the bottle in the cloth

As we started marking the cloth 1.5 inches above the base, we will get this area in the bottom of the bottle. Fold this area to make a smooth base. Fold the bottom cloth from all 4 sides and stick it properly using glue. You can wrap it just like a gift paper and give it a smooth finish. Now, one side of the cloth covered bottle is sealed.

Cut the upper part of the cloth where we made measurement marks previously. These marks will cut the top of the cloth from the front. The front top of the bottle is now visible and back is yet covered.

Once you remove the harpic bottle, now its time to finish the top or closing of the bag. We have a long square flap which we need to trim into a curvy shaped closing. Draw an arc/half circle on the cloth and cut it with a scissor. Now we have a perfect flap which looks great when closed. We also need to give a jute finish to the flap and thus, start wrapping jute on the flap.

Starting from the bottom, apply layers of glue and wrap jute strands on it. Lightly and smoothly apply jute on the flap.

Step 5- Prepare the belt

We will prepare the belt from in the same technique and thus, we will use jute and buckram cloth for it. Take another buckram cloth and take measurement of 1 inch width. Keep the belt long as possible which you can carry comfortably.  Cut this 1 inch wide and long stripes with a scissor. If the strips are not long enough, stick 2 strips and make a long strip.

Broaden the long strip on the table and make it flat. Apply glue on the strip and paste the jute strand on the cloth.  You will need to make 5-6 such layers of juts strands on the cloth. Fill the entire strip with jute and let it get dry.

Cut the remaining part with the scissors and glue the small ribbon in the backside of the stripes.

Step 7: Cover the base of basket

Place these pieces on a table and spread the clay. While merging these pieces, make a circular formation from the clay. If you do not get a perfect circle, use a cutter to give it a perfect circular shape. Remove the other clay from sides. Once you get the perfect circle, its time to give the circle a shape of the lotus leaf. If you have ever noticed, the leaf under lotus has a slight bend and curve from a single side. Prepare this curve in the circle. Take the cutter, draw a thin and long u and remove the part.

Step 2- Give the box a finishing look

Once you stick the bottoms, trim the extra paper in the front folding of the box. This way, the length of the folding will be equal from all sides. Now, measure the width of the top of both the sides. Mark the measurements and draw it on the main front folding of the box. Keep the folding of the same length and draw a line in centre using ruler and pencil.

With the help of scissors, trim the bent top of the front folding and with a cutter, slightly mark and engrave the ling drawn by ruler. This will make all 4 sides equal and easily foldable which turns into a cool storage bag! This will give you a wide frame shaped bag.

Step 3- Stick the sides of bag

Manage to cut the perfect sizes of the paper similar to the box measurements. On the top of the box with which the box opens and closes, we will apply colour paper while on the sides, we will use printed paper.

With the help of cutter, cut the small rectangular spaces on the colour paper which we made previously on the box.

Step 5- Make the handle of the bag

Soap box recycled craft

To make small and pretty storage bag, we will need beautiful handles. Cut the handles in a magnet shape and with the same measurement of the 2 rectangle spaces we made on the box. Make 2 same sized shapes with printed paper while one large sized handle with colour paper. The small printed papers will be used to top and decorate the colour paper handle.

On both the sides of colour paper handle, stick the small printed paper handles we made. Bend the ends of the colour paper handle, insert the handle in both the rectangle spaces and apply glue to the folded ends. Stick these ends with the top of the box and let it get dry!

Step 6- Give finishing touches to the bag

Steps To Make A DIY Nameplate

Step 1- Design the cardboard

Nameplate Décor DIY

Let’s start with cutting and trimming the cardboard.  Open the cardboard while tearing the folds. Open the cardboards and cut a rectangular shape from the cardboard.  You can use shoe boxes, cardboard sheets or such thick cardboard papers.

Once you cut the rectangular cardboard, draw a design on the board. You can choose any of the ethnic, floral, peacock design which looks fabulous. Here we are using a beautiful peacock style design. Make the design and draw two lines on the top and in the bottom which will be used to display the name. Cut the entire design with the help of a cutter.

Step 2- Make the nameplate with thermocol sheet

Nameplate Décor DIY Craft

The name plate must be thick and embossed. For this purpose, we will use the thermocol sheets. Get a piece of thermocol sheet and draw the same design of the nameplate on the thermocol sheet. You can use the transparent paper or can manually draw the design. Now, with the help of cutter, cut the thermocol sheet design.

Make 2-3 same design in small sizes on the thermocol and cut it with a cutter.

Step 3- Attach the thermocol sheet and design

Now it’s time to attach the thermocol sheet with the design to give it an embossed and thick texture. Stick the designed cardboard on the thermocol sheet using glue. Press the design and let it stick properly.

Once the design gets dry, cut the thermocol sheet framed with the design with a cutter. Maintain the shape of the design and trim out the unnecessary edges. You can also use ruler to get perfect measurements and cut.

Step 4- Make the second side of the design

On one side of the thermocol sheet you have already pasted the design. Now it’s time to paste the design on second side. For this, place the thermocol design on a cardboard paper, trace the design and cut the design with the help of cutter.

Take some glue, apply it on the cardboard design and paste it in the back of the thermocol sheet. Now we have a design pasted on both the sides of the thermocol.

Step 5- Design the shapes

Nameplate DIY Décoration

We need to give a beautiful look to the designs we shaped. Also thermocol will not absorb the colour properly and this is why, we will use cotton bandages. In a bowl, pour some glue and with a brush, apply it on the designs. Stick the cotton bandages on the designs. Trim the edges and give a perfect finishing to the design. Apply the cotton bandages on all the designs.

Now, colour the design. Apply colour on the cotton bandage which will thoroughly absorb the colour. Paint all the designs with different and complementing shades and let the designs get dry.

Step 6- Colour and design the nameplate

Nameplate DIY Room Décor

Get a tissue paper and paste it on the nameplate. With the help of a brush, apply glue and stick the layers of tissue paper on it. Enhance this layer to give it a thick look. When the glue dries off, apply paint to the nameplate. Colour the entire object with paints and you can apply double coats to get a smooth and fine look.

While the colour on the nameplate gets dry, stick up the designs. Keep the largest design first and then stack up the other designs on the basis of size. Use glue gun to paste the designs.

Step 7- Decorate the nameplate and design

Now it’s time to use the golden lace to cover the sides of the design. Apply some glue on the sides and stick the golden lace on the sides of all the designs. This will give a glittery and perfect finish to the designs and colours. Also stick this golden lace on the side of nameplate.

Use the decorative beads and stones to make the design and nameplate more attractive. On the edges of the top most design, apply some glue and stick the stone chain. In the middle of the design, stick drop shaped stones while frame the design with beads chains. Frame all the designs from top to bottom with golden beads which will give the design a perfect finish and embossed glitter look! Stick the glitzy stones in the gaps which will get highlighted and shine.

Step 8- Paste the design on nameplate and decorate the nameplate

Nameplate DIY Wall Décor Craft

Once we get the design completely ready with laces, stones and colours, paste it on the nameplate. Stick it using glue and let it dry. Now it’s time to get the name on the nameplate. For this, get a cardboard printed with ‘my home’ or any name you want. Get some clay and soften is with your hands. Roll this clay to make letters and apply this rolled clay on the cardboard.

Stick all the clay letters exactly on the cardboard and give it an interesting look. Now colour these letters which you prepared with clay. You can choose different shades and also use 2-3 colours to give it a natural impact!

Step 9- Complete the design with added decorations

When the colour gets dry, with the help of cutter, remove the letters one by one. This way, you will get hard and painted letters which you can stick on the nameplate easily. Now, you simply need to paste these letters on the nameplate.

Use glue gun and stick all the letters on the nameplate. Let it dry for few minutes and your nameplate gets almost ready. For extra decoration, frame the nameplate with bead chain using glue.
