Do you love basket wall displays as much as I do?! One of my favorite things about them is how unique and creative you can get with A. the baskets and B. the way they are displayed. They seem pretty straight-forward, but I'm going to share some things I did to make this process easier and have it come out how I want it on the first try!
1. Collect your baskets.
Every single one of my baskets in this post are thrifted. Check your local thrift stores for shallow baskets of different shapes and sizes. Many stores now sell baskets specifically for this use, but it can get pricey. If you want to buy new or pre sourced try Etsy, World Market, Anthropologie or anywhere that would sell basket trays. Decide if you want pops of color or a neutral theme. Also decide if you want different shapes such as ovals and squares, and/or different objects as part of the display such as small mirrors. Take your time and be patient! I collected mine over a couple of months—it was part of the fun!
2. Try out different set ups and take photos.
Here are just a few of my practice displays. You want to be sure you love the orientation before nailing them to the wall. Also, know where you are hanging your display and decide if it would look best displayed horizontally or vertically or try out both if either will work. Experiment with different ways of ordering them and play with space. Take photos of each practice display so you can refer to your chosen setup when you go to put it on the wall.
3. Set up your chosen display again on the floor or table and measure.
Measure your display from left to right and top to bottom and find the center point. Mark your center point on the wall where you want it to go.
4. Begin hanging the baskets.
Start with the bottom most basket placing it the correct distance from your center point. Now you should be able to easily place your baskets from there based on your set up placement on the floor and reference photo.
It's easiest to have someone helping you if possible, but you can definitely do it on your own!
