Another INCREDIBLY Easy DIY Project - Wire Basket

Remember yesterday when I shared how to make this ridiculously easy wire candleholder?

Today I'm going to show you how to make the wire basket that's just as easy and even cheaper!




Here's what you'll need:

Two 3-bar Rebar Chairs (found in cement aisle of home improvement store)
Twine
Hot glue

This is the rebar chairs that I found at Lowe's.  Fifty-eight cents each and you only need two.

These are the small ones that I used to make the inverted basket that I mention in the video.

So let's get started.  I hope you were able to follow yesterday's tutorial video because I've got another one for ya!



I used mine in a few different ways.  The possibilites are only limited by your creativity!

You can add scrap pieces of thin board, cut to the length of each basket to use as bases.  I painted them with gray chalkpaint for an aged look.

This is the smaller basket that I've used inverted to hold two maple syrup cups.  I found the cups at Bella Vintage Barn Sale recently.  I believe they're used for collecting maple sap and I thought they were great looking vintage pieces with all sorts of uses.  You may see these again later this fall!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
