My mother collects baskets. For as long as I can remember, a ring of baskets has circled around the tops of the kitchen and breakfast room walls. Most are antiques, though some are new Longabergers. On a side note, did you know that the head office for Longaberger is a giant basket-building? Looks as though giants left behind their picnic basket. Anyway! Because of my mother, I’ve always had a soft spot for baskets. They are a handy and attractive way to store just about anything. Here are my top five favorite basket crafts at FaveCrafts:
Willow Basket– This is a great, low-cost decorating ideas. Update a plain wicker waste basket by painting accents. Try bright colors to match your decorating scheme if you prefer. If you have a circular basket, use painter’s tape to help you paint stripes of color.
Triangle Wire Mesh Basket– This wire hanging basket can be purely decorative or can be used to store rings on your dresser.
Sunflower Wall Basket– Welcome guests to your home with a basket near or on your front door. Use as a planter or fill with dried flowers/branches. You can decorate your letter basket in this manner.
Stash Baskets Crochet Pattern- These crochet baskets were featured in Crochet Those Kitchen Blues Away.
