Make "Baskets" Out of Cardboard Boxes

Bulletin board ideas 21 hours ago
Necessity is the mother of invention, as my mom used to say. I couldn't find the right size baskets to fit on a couple of shelves in my daughter's room, so I covered a wine box and a shoe(boot)box with 4 ply jute twine.#GetOrganized #OrganizedHome

  • Here's the project all finished.
  • I found a wine box that was the perfect size (width and depth) and cut down the top
  • I wrapped & hot glued some jute string around a shoe box for the top box and the wine box is on the bottom.
  • I made some liners from a drop cloth to line the cardboard boxes to complete the look.

    Looks like the real deal!! Very clever...although, I think the wine box with its design is pretty to use as is! Some people stencil designs like those....
