Initially I wanted to use his basket idea for my laundry but I know my dirty laundy will not do it any Justice. Burlap is perfect for all your fall decor but the is craft will be in use all year round.i can use this to store all the yarn I got for Christmas as my closet space is spilling over.

This is such a creative idea that opens a whole new world of baskets and decorating. Instead of burlap, why not use favorite prints or solid colors of material? Or wide ribbon? Or lace! I could have so much fun with this. I have seen small baskets that would be cool to do this way then fill with small items for a gift or to hold things in a guest bath or bedroom.

This would look great in our living room. I have so many throw quilts I don't know where to put them at this point!

I've been searching for a rustic-looking basket to hold my winter blankets, but most of what I've found in home decor stores costs $50 or more! This dollar-store alternative is definitely the better option. Plus, burlap always works for fall!

With all the fall items that seem to come out of hiding each year, this craft makes perfect sense. It gives everyone a space to keep their things within arms reach yet without being all over the house. What a great way to promote organization as the seasons change and get colder.
