Baskets can help turn a messy storage spot into well organized space. If you head to most stores to buy one, a little basket can easily cost $20 plus dollars. When I do buy a basket, I usually head to a thrift shop to buy a basket for cheap. This time I decided to make my own. This was my first time making one, but I’m pleased with how it turned out and I would totally make this again. I originally made this easy woven rope basket DIY for the Better Homes and Gardens blog.
Supplies needed to create this project (directions can be found here):
- 1/4 inch x 100 feet natural sisal rope
- a lot of embroidery thread (white, black, and any other color you want)
- large embroidery needle
- a small amount of yarn
Total cost for this project: $9 (the only thing I had to buy for this project was the rope, since I had all the other materials).
Time needed to create this: It actually does take a bit of time. I probably spent three evenings stitching this thing together. It was easy and mindless work, all done while I watched a bit of television (we are catching up on Project Runway right now).
Head on over to the Better Homes and Gardens blog to find the full tutorial and to make this DIY for yourself.
If you create this DIY, I’d love to see it! You can share a link in the comments below, or tag me in Instagram with a photo (my username is @thepapermama).
