DIY Anthropologie Basket Challenge

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!

Love, Shae

    Shae your basket it so stinkin cute! I love the look of the yarn and rope together. I am pinning this to make me one. I think it would look great to place wrapped candies in. Thanks for sharing. I am so happy you joined in on the fun. Can’t wait until next month’s challenge, I hope you join in on that one as well!

    Shae, what a cute idea with the wool like yarn mixed in. It’s not only soft looking but has a farmhouse, boho vibe and I love that. Good job.

    Never would have thought to add the yarn! I am imagining what this must look like in you pop-up…perhaps with a plant inside? Just really like the different textures you added to this.
