Little things can make me happy. Cute little things like these incredibly sweet rope baskets that I made the other day to keep my remote controls in one place.

I am currently working on a new living room design, and I envisioned our new room with a lot of layers, textures, and a little bohemian infusion. I bought a new jute rug, and I layered it with a shag rug in the room. With that pairing in mind, I thought a rope basket would make a perfect home for my remote controls. After the first basket was done, I soon realized that I needed more of these baskets as I can use them to organize many other things around the house.

Another bonus is that it’s a very simple and quick DIY that you can tackle literally in minutes on a rainy afternoon.

SUPPLIES:

  • Thick rope from the home improvement store
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Yarn

    STEPS:

    1. Add glue to one end of the rope and start wrapping the rope in a circle
    2. Keep wrapping the rope until you have made the size that you would like the base to be
    3. Once the base is created, start wrapping the rope upright
    4. Wrap until the desired size, then cut the rope and glue the finishing end to the basket
    5. Bonus step: affix some charming DIY tassels with string or glue

      Here are just a few examples of how you can utilize this type of basket in your home:

      • use it for holding stationery items at your desk, on your counter or near your entryway
      • use it as a planter
      • corral your remote controls near a chair or sofa
      • display it on your kitchen countertop for utensils or wooden spoons

        The list can go on and on. There are many everyday items that we can keep in these darling handmade baskets.

        Here is a peek of the basket in my living room. Today I am sharing this stylish Danish modern chair makeover on the blog, so hop over and see how the room is coming together.

        I also created a quick video tutorial of how I made my basket. I hope it will encourage you to make one for your home as well!

        Thanks for reading! Cheers
