Creating a Basket Wall is Easy as 1-2-3

Hey friends! Do you ever get that urge to create, but you are too scared you will mess it all up? I’ve been there and done that…many times. More often than not, things work out for the best when it comes to taking chances with art pieces or projects around your home, right? Let’s take those past projects that didn’t go so well, and think about what we learned from the experience. For me, it usually meant that I hadn’t properly prepared for what I wanted to attempt from start to finish. I didn't have the right supplies, or the right conditions and sometimes I didn't even have the patience. I simply had the urge and started. Lesson is: Prepare, prepare, and prepare some more.

With this basket wall art that I created on my front entry accent wall, I had prepared in a few different ways and I wanted to share with you how I did so in three easy steps. I had so many messages on Instagram from you saying that you had wanted to create a basket wall, but you were too afraid to do it because you were afraid you wouldn’t know how to place them once you started. So I hope that you’ll feel a bit more confident after seeing how I did it. It’s really about that perfect balance of planning and a having a creative eye. And most of all, not being afraid to do your décor, YOUR way!
