DIY: Metal wire basket - metallikori 1/12

Tiny metal wire basket for dollshouse

You will need:
0,75 mm thick metal wire
0,3 mm thick metal wire
cutting pliers
flat pliers
a small piece of styrox

Step 1:
Cut three pieces from 0,75 mm thick metal wire. One piece is 7 cm long.

Step 2:
Form the wire in shape with pliers. Sides are 2,7 cm long and the middle is 1,6 cm long.

Step 3 and 4:
Make tiny legs for basket. Bend all the edges with flat pliers. Then form the pieces of wire into a round shape. Try to make all three pieces the same way.

Step 5 and 6:
Take the flat pliers and one formed wirepiece. Bend tiny u-form in the middle of the wire, beween the legs. Take another wirepiece and form another "u", but now upside down.

Tight all the pieces together with thin wire.

Then cut six, 15 cm long pieces from the 0,3 mm wire. Bend and attach a one thin wire to each leg of the basket. Now start veawing:
