Basket Weaving 101 was the butt of every college major joke when I went to school, what about you? Turns out, though, I think we would have all really enjoyed a little basket weaving instruction. Especially if it meant a break from some of the harder stuff!
You can still learn to make a basket, and it’s right on trend too – handmade baskets are a beautiful way to bring that natural element into your home. Choose from the less-taxing hot glue and rope approach, or go full-on basket weaver with a traditional wicker basket. Plus, some options in between. They’ll all turn out just beautifully.

These bright colors would be great in a kids room, or choose a more subtle palette for your main living area – we can always use the extra storage, am I right?

It took me a minute to realize this basket wasn’t an old flea market find! Seriously, it’s made with all new materials, and the result is pretty epic!

This combination makes the basket feel so modern – and it doesn’t require anything fancy, just regular old air dry clay. I might start making one of these with my daughter after school!

Finally, a basket I could use for recycling that actually looks good enough to sit outside of the cabinet. The only thing I’d change? Adding some staple gun action to the base, not just hot glue.
