    Wash it up , paint it if needed, and put fruit in it. Put spanish moss in it then small flowering plants inside to hang outside. Put kids toys in it, put in trunk for odds and ends in your car....

    Use it in the bathroom (after you clean it up and spray paint it) to hold hair goodies. Use it when you garden to carry your gardening stuff (moisture meter, trowel, snips, etc.) Contain hose sprayers and sprinklers.

    Line with moss and plant it up. Line with Fabric and have a drawstring closure for sewing box. Turn it upside down and use as Lampshade.

    You could put it outside on your front lawn on it's side and put soil in it and plant flowers make it look like the flowers are spilling out of it

    Paint It, hang it with the bottom against the wall hang it in the washroom and put towels in it or tohold extra rolls oftoilet paper or other toiletries

    Or hang it in any other room and use as a shelf

    Paint it and instead of a blanket ladder, use the basket to hold blankets &/or pillows

    If you have a dog or cat, put their toys in it
    Or kids, put toys in it

    You can use it to hold dirty laundry (weave material throughout it to fill in any big spaces
    Use it to hold mittens/hats/scarves etc in winter
