Giving Storage Crates the Cute Treatment

I don’t know about you, but I am still trying to find clever ways to corral all the Christmas 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.


  • Wire crate
  • Twine, yarn or rope
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue & gun

Go ahead and put on The Real Housewives because the next step takes awhile.  Wrap, glue, wrap, glue, wrap, glue, repeat until the entire thing is covered.

Now there isn’t that better?  Much cuter, homier, colorful – whatever the adjective.  Find more fun ideas like this one on DIY Network and my post 10 Ways to Recycle a Basket.
