HOW TO DRESS UP BASKETS:WEEK 4

I like baskets. And I like to make them pretty.

But what an easy way to dress up a boring basket without breaking the bank. Here are my tips for styling a pretty (and useful!) basket.

#1. Start with a basket that you like.

A basket helps to keep items organized, and adds a fresh look to a bland storage area. To keep costs down I found this basket in my home. If you don’t have any Homegoods is the best for inexpensive baskets. My basic advice is to fill them up with items that you want to hide and use everyday. So dressing the basket will give that extra style to your storage closet.

#2. Supplies

Basket/Burlap Fabric/White Ribbon/Vintage Buttons/Glue Gun/Glue Stick

I measure the width of the baskets on all sides and cut 4 strips. I also cut the pretty white lace ribbon  to and picked white vintage buttons… I collected these buttons since I was a little girl. My mom kept this tin can filled with buttons and I loved adding to them. I still so.

#3. Glueing Everything.

Start with the strips of burlap and glue them on the center of the basket all the way around. Next glue the ribbon and last the buttons. The glue gun is perfect adhesive for this.

#4. Start adding your favorite stuff.

…again, add useful items you use. I am obsessed with hiding my pets ugly medicines or dog food treats, so this is perfect. You can use this for so many thing from glasses to dishes too. I make a great tray for pretty dishes. I added some green jute string on the glass jars to dress those too.

…and now for the Big Reveal!
