I love teaming up with my blogging friends when they ask if I’m up for a challenge! Terrie from @decorateandmorewithtip asked if I would like to be involved with her Anthropologie challenge and I knew I couldn’t say no! Today, I want to share with you a challenge for a DIY Anthropologie basket! I wanted to try making mine look slightly different from the one in the picture.
I used this rope from the Dollar Tree and a crochet yarn from Hobby Lobby. I only used two strands of the rope and a very small amount of the crochet yarn.
I started the basket by winding the rope around and wrapping the yarn around the rope, two layers at a time. I used my crochet needle to push the yarn through the rope.
It was relatively easy to make and I could have easily made it a lot larger. I have enough rope and yarn to make another basket!
I think that it definitely did not turn out how I envisioned but it is definitely a start and something to work with or build on in the future! I added my Christmas cactus to my basket and styled it in our newly renovated pop-up camper! I hope y’all enjoy checking out my friends and how they each made their own version of this basket!
