I don’t know about you, but I am always trying to find clever ways to corral all the clutter – I mean gifts. There are plenty of options out there, but sometimes I like to make my own or at least upgrade and customize something I already have.A pair of wire baskets from Target were begging for a quick and easy makeover and who was I to refuse them? Here is what you need to update the wire baskets.


  • Wire crate
  • Twine, yarn or rope
  • Scissors

Hot glue & gun

Go ahead and put on The Real Housewives because the next step takes awhile. It is simple to make, but just time consuming. Just wrap, glue, wrap, glue, wrap, glue, repeat until the entire thing is covered. See that wasn't so bad, right?

Now there isn’t that better? Much cuter, homier, colorful – whatever the adjective. Find more fun ideas like this one on the blog

The possibilities are endless with this fun craft idea. You could even update dollar store laundry baskets and thrift store baskets. Imagine the storage possibilities? If you liked this project, you may want to check out my handmade rope bowls that I made on the blog here
