This has such a great organic feel and look to it and seem pretty simple and hard to mess up!

Here are ones with the same concept but with doilies. Way to make it even more less complicated!
Source: Going to need Google Translate for this site.

This one is in English with lots of images of how to do this.

Unsure again who the true source of this image so there is no link but the concept seems simple enough and similar to the one shown above. However, I fee it would be a bit time consuming.


Woven Felt Baskets
This one is not a tutorial but rather a link to be able to purchase them. However, seeing the tutorials above thought it would be pretty simple to implement the materials used with felt to achieve the same look.




It's been quite some time since I've crocheted anything but I'd really like to try and make one of these. I think Crocheting with the rhythmic motion is very relaxing.

These are gorgeous but you'll need Google Translate to translate the site.






This is shown with paper but you could easily do this with fabric instead.

DIY basket out of plastic bags!
Source: Unknown but the idea I like crocheting plastic bags...I don't know about you but mine would be from Walmart...thank goodness they are no longer the unchic blue.
Here is a link to a list of tutorials going over how to make these crochet plastic baskets.
Source again is unknown but simply get a container or box, your hot glue gun and your saved corks (you know you save these) and start gluing away!


Here's where I can get my how tiered basket that I saw on my get inspired to organize page that I want and can's not the "same" but i like this one more because it's a DIY one!

I'm telling you I'm going to have one of these by the end of the week made up for my office! ;) What craft room couldn't use one of these!

As I try with all my post...trying to contribute in some small way to the DIY world of inspiration. If you can believe this...I learned this technique in the 5th grade and still had remembered how to make them. This is one I had made quite a while back. I didn't have any intention of making a tutorial so I've got nothing to show there but I did find existing tutorials for this. The technique is African Coiled Baskets you can find a tutorial to one similar to this here.
