How to Make a Blanket Basket
If you love a cozy home, blankets are an easy way to add warmth and texture. Keep your blankets handy by storing them in a stylish basket, which can double as a living room decor piece.
Start by wrapping a length of rope around the bottom of your blanket basket . Make sure to use enough glue so it doesn’t fray when you cut it off. Once the base is completely wrapped, start working on the sides of the basket, adding more rope sections as you go to make your basket taller and wider. Once you have the desired shape, use your hot glue gun to secure the ends of the rope. Repeat with a different color of rope, alternating the colors as you wrap until your basket is the height and width that you like.
Cozy and Organized: Stylish Blanket Storage Solutions with a Blanket Basket
Baskets aren’t just for blanket storage, either—they can also be great gifts. Fill one with a few of your favorite throws, or make a custom basket for an infant or toddler filled with extra blankets, hats, and mittens. If you’re looking for a gift idea for older children, try filling a bucket with art supplies, sports gear, or jigsaw puzzles.
For a more subtle blanket storage method, consider a rustic wooden crate. Not only does this approach blend in with your living room decor, but it will look like a decorative element on its own. Alternatively, browse second-hand shops for vintage trunks and repaint them in a color that fits your decor palette.
