I wanted to do something special to my shelving instead of just adding plain baskets. Baskets are great for organizing and add a fresh look to a plain storage area. So dressing the basket up with pretty embellishments will give that extra style to your storage areas. You can use beads, buttons, stones, and ribbon.

  1. I measure the width of the baskets on all sides and cut 4 strips of burlap ribbon. I also cut a pretty white lace ribbon and picked white vintage buttons. I collected buttons since I was a little girl. My mom had a huge tin can filled with pretty buttons. So I picked all the blues ones.

2. Start with the strips of burlap and glue them on the center of the basket all the way around.

Glue the buttons along the front of the basket. Make sure they are centered and even.

I really loved how the basket looks with all the pretty embellishments on it. You can add all sorts of different version of ribbons. If you don’t have buttons add beads, crystals and pearls.

Now you can add anything inside the pretty baskets. I am obsessed with hiding my pets ugly medicines or dog food treats, so this is perfect. You can use this for so many things from tea bags, candy and use it as a coffee station basket.
