Instructions

Step 1

Measure and place six marks 9 inches apart on a PVC pipe. Cut a letter-size piece of paper in half lengthwise and tape the ends together to make one long strip. Wrap the paper around the pipe so the edges are flush. Trace a line around the pipe. Repeat for the remaining lines.

Good to Know

If you decide to use a different basket, measure the ends of the pipes and the other basket to make sure all six tubes will fit. Then cut the tubes slightly higher than the edge of the basket.

Step 2

Cut each pipe section to length following the lines. Sand the ends smooth and round over the top pipe edges. Wipe each pipe clean.

Step 3

Using the printing along the sides of the pipes as a guide, apply a thin, straight bead of adhesive along the length of the pipe. Lay the pipe on a flat surface and place a second pipe near it with the lettering facing the first pipe and the rounded ends flush with each other. Press and tape the pipes together. Repeat for the other two pairs of pipes.

Step 4

Stand the three pairs of pipes on end with the rounded-over ends facing down. Along the lengths of one pair of pipes, apply two beads of adhesive 90 degrees to the original joint. Press and tape a second pair of pipes to the first one -- a carpenter’s square helps keep the pairs aligned. Then attach the third pair of pipes to form a rectangular shape when the six pipes are viewed from the top. Tape and let dry.

Step 5

Turn the assembly so the rounded edges face up and insert the organizer into the basket.
