Hey Guys!

While I have no pretty bathroom to show you just yet, I do have a project for the space to share with you. It may or may not work for your lifestyle to have a laundry basket in the bathroom. But baskets work for a multitude of functions, like storing extra towels! And even outside the bathroom, giving baskets a bit of a facelift can add style to their purpose (like holding little one's toys!). Today I want to share with you how I created suede tassels to make my basket prettier!

I feel like I'm not the greatest at DIYs. Some things I am super proud of, but most of the time I just want to embellish something to make it fit my style. That's exactly what I did with this basket. It was in the clearance bin at Michaels for $5. Big baskets rarely show up for that price so I snatched it up. The basket would work really well for a coastal style home, but that's just not really my design aesthetic. I wanted to add that boho global flair to it and I found a great way to do that with suede ribbon.

How To Make Suede Tassels & Attach Them To A Basket


Supplies:

Supplies for DIY Suede Tassels on a Basket - Video Tutorial!

  • Suede String in color of choice - My roll was white but the ribbon comes in so many colors!

  • Scissors - Fiskars are my favorite scissors by far. They cut through the suede like butter!


How To: I hope you're enjoying the video tutorials. They're much easier for me to make sure I capture everything versus remembering to take photos of every single step.



 

And that's how it goes! Pretty simple but makes a great statement. I can already see in my head that this will be a great addition to our bathroom. I'll make sure to come back sometime later and update this post with pictures of it in the space, but for now here are a few "glamour shots."

    The right basket may be the wrong one. Haha! I'm not deep or philosophical, but I didn't think this was the basket for me!
