With this cool rope storage basket, you will have a cute and simple way to store some of your items. From towels to toys, there are so many uses for it!

If you are in need of something like this and you do not want to go out and buy one, you are in luck! This basket is DIY and you will love how easy it is.

This rope storage basket is a  craft that you will have fun with. It is simple and you will love the outcome you will get that will look great anywhere you put it in your home.

Cut off the flaps on the top of your box with scissors. And using a hot glue gun fold in and glue the bottom closed. Use a good amount because the bottom will bare the weight of whatever you put in it.

Using your glue gun again line the inside with fabric, making sure that it is securely glued to the box. Now you are going to cut the fabric which will cover the top 1/3 of the outside of the box. Measure around the entire box. This is how long your piece of fabric will be, plus you need to add ½”. Whatever the 1/3 measurement for the height of the fabric is, add 1-2” to that.

As a guide, I made a mark on the box with a pencil where the fabric would start. Start about 3” to the right of one of the corners and using your glue gun, secure fabric in place, gluing every 4”-5” to keep the fabric in place. When you come around to the place where you started, fold the fabric over the top of the box and secure fabric in place, gluing every 4”-5” to keep the fabric in place.

Wrap and glue the rope until you meet the fabric.
