Rope and seagrass baskets are everywhere and while they are fantastic at solving your storage problems, their simplistic style and neutral palette might leave you wanting more. Here's how to add some easy, colorful style to these basic baskets.
I picked up this tray at Target last summer on major discount. The tray wasn't really my style (I have a very difficult time accepting neutral palettes into my life) but I figured the organizational perks would be worth it. It sat on my dining table for about a month collecting junk, looking drab, and was shortly thereafter banished to the laundry room for being a boring, junk collecting jerkface. That is, until I came into the possession of about a million colorful tassels. They balanced out and brightened the overall look of the tray and now it sits on a crate in my living room, acting as a little side table.
What You Need
- Embroidery or yarn tassels
- A plain basket or tray
2. Loop the tails of the tassel through the fibers of the basket and tie in a double knot. Depending on the overall size of your container you'll want to leave a few inches between each tassel.
3. Trim the tails of the tassels.
Your all set! In just a short amount of time you've transformed a drab piece of home decor into something useful and cheery!
