Below is part of the remains of our old dog fence, and it was in such good condition there was no way this little guy was going to the dump. The beauty of this DIY Wire Mesh Basket project is that you can make your own bucket as big or small as you would like. Like normal, I didn’t measure out any particular length, but it was approximately 2.5 to 3 feet in length. The height was approximately the same, but that just seemed too tall for my purposes so I folded it in half.
I originally tried a thicker wire to tie the two sides of this wire mesh together, but it was extremely difficult and frustrating. So, I pulled out the 24 gauge wire, and it worked perfectly! It’s pliable, and just strong enough to make this basket come together.

There’s really no special way to sew or tie this wire mesh together. Whatever works the easiest for you!
After you flip your DIY wire mesh basket back over you might need to measure your metal base to see if it’ll be too small, big or just right. Thankfully mine was the perfect diameter!
How to Make a DIY Wire Mesh Basket
Make a knot with your rope on the bottom of your basket, and then pull through the first hole of your base. Once again, you can use any method to tie your base to the basket. Just make sure it is sewn in tight enough so it will not fall out.
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend,
