You can file this one under things you do when you have WAY TOO MUCH time on your hands. During a recent tumble through the youtube rabbit hole, I stumbled on this user's videos on newspaper weaving. I figured if I had time I would try it out. I can't say I would recommend anyone else to try it, but I did do it and here's the result. For a first attempt it turned out okay. It feels just like a wicker basket and will fit on a shelf nicely to hold random things.
