For whatever reason I have always been drawn to these classic Easter baskets. You know, the woven bamboo ones that you can buy for a dollar a piece at the grocery store?! I've always been drawn to their bright colors and feel the urge to buy one whenever I see them, but I don't really have a need for a bunch of Easter baskets! I do however, always need craft storage, so I thought I would give these guys a new life as boho-inspired storage bins.
Without their handles and with the addition of some pom-pom trim, they look right at home in my craft room. What do you think? Read on for the details of this simple 5 minute, under $5 craft!

Supplies for Easter Basket Storage Bins
- Inexpensive woven bamboo Easter baskets (I found mine at Michael's for $1 each)
- Pom-pom trim
- Hot glue
- Strong scissors
How to Make Storage Bins from Easter Baskets
1. Use a strong pair of scissors to clip the handle off at the top of the basket.
The basket will look like this without the handle.
2. Add 1-2 rows of pom-pom trim around the top of the basket with a bead of hot glue. That's it!
Such an easy project with such colorful fun results!
I love the added dose of color they give to my desk along with my new craft supply art!
