For this project, you will need some square dollar tree baskets. They come in so many different colours! I used 5 baskets for my shelf, but you can use as many as you would like. You will also need a pool noodle (also from the dollar tree) and some zip ties!

Get the materials for this project here:

Start by using the zip ties to connect the baskets together. I used two zip ties for each side of the baskets.

Lay the baskets on the floor, just like you want your shelf to look. Connect all the baskets together with zip ties to secure your shelf!

Once all your baskets are connected,place your shelf on the floor upside down. You will need to add "spacers" to the back of your shelf to ensure that it will stand up by itself. A pool noodle worked perfectly for this! You can cut your pool noodle to size with a regular kitchen knife.

Secure the pool noodle spacers in place with a little bit of super glue or hot glue.
