DIY Boho Basket

5 Materials
30 Minutes

Create your own rope basket storage, plant holders, or to just have as decoration! Learn how in this simple diy!

You'll need:

1)Rope (at least 50ft)
2) Hot glue gun & glue sticks
3)Any size plastic basket- this helps shape your rope basket!
4)Spray paint or acrylic paints & paint brush!
5) Painters tape (to create designs on your basket)

First you will get your hot glue gun plugged in and ready! Once its hot, grab your plastic basket mold, get your rope and start gluing !
Glue the ends together. Go around and around and make sure you use enough glue to keep it secure!

It should look like this, now start going around your plastic basket mold. Don't glue the rope to the plastic basket but around it onto the robe!
You'll start to see the basket form!
Glue until you get to the end of your rope! I made a handle for my basket by using the last bit of rope.
Pull rope basket off mold!
Now get creative! Paint designs or get tape and spray paint your basket however you feel!

Let it sit and dry for at least a day!

That's it!! Simple, easy and fun!
Hope you enjoyed this DIY!

    I would love to try this. Not sure what kind of rope and I want to paint the whole basket to match my décor. Is this acceptable?

      Clothsline rope would work just fine. Also, you could dip the rope into some dye instead of painting - do it before you make the basket, as the glue most likely will not take the dye.

    Why parchment paper? in my neck of the woods, parchment paper is expensive. Couldn't u use any other paper, or even no paper for this project?

      The kind of parchment paper you can buy on a roll in the housewares department of any Dollar tree store. 😊
