Basket Wall Decor tips to help you create a beautiful Boho-looking basket wall. Master this trending look for in your own home.
After the Christmas decorations were taken down this year. I decided that I wanted to make some changes to the house. Some of these changes are still in the process of taking shape.
The very first change was this wall by our front door. As you walk into our living room from the kitchen this little foyer wall catches your eye.
During Christmas the last few years I have displayed my NOEL sign. Normally it says HOME with a wreath for the o, that I will change out for the season.
I follow a lot of decorating groups on Facebook and had been seeing all these beautiful basket walls. Wanting to make a change from the HOME sign I decided that a basket wall would be a great idea.
Tips To Creating Basket Wall Decor
One of my first tips for creating a basket wall would be to shop your house. I have a collection of baskets that I used for storage in the pantry.
Thinking I had around one I shopped around the house to see what I could find, unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything.
Shopping at thrift stores or antique stores is also a great idea. I found the large middle one at an antique/thrift store. The bonus on that piece is it’s from Ikea and I didn’t spend much on it.
The other two baskets I was able to find at the At Home store for a decent price. And the flat woven basket is actually a placemat that I got from Hobby Lobby.
Hanging Wall Decor
Whenever I’m hanging wall decor I start with placing it on the floor in groupings. This allows me to play around with groupings to find what will work best.
Not to mention it saves on putting a lot of holes in the walls from nails. This leads me to my next tip.
How to hang flat decorative wall baskets. Command velcro strips, yup these things are amazing!! I use command strips all over the house for decor as well as for my outside decorations.
This “basket” is more of a round tray that I found in the decorative tray section at the At Home store. Since this wall is right by the door, there is a chance of the decor getting blown or knocked off.
So things need to be secured to the wall. By placing the velcro strips at the top and bottom it will be more secure.
As for the flat wolven basket that is a placemat, I used two nails to hang it on the wall. By using minimal nails to hang the baskets that will help to leave my wall hole-free.
If and when I choose to change this again, I won’t have to patch any holes and touch up the paint.
Layering The Baskets
Deciding on a focal piece is also very helpful. Once you have your focal point grouping will come easier. Knowing my focal piece would be the large wooden bowl. This was the piece that I made sure went on the wall first.
Since this piece also stands out from the wall a bit. It would help with achieving a layered look.
Creating a layered look with the basket wall will also add dimension. Getting a layered look with different-sized baskets will also help create dimension.
Don’t be afraid to think outside the basket. Use wood bowls or even like I did a placemat, whatever catches your eye.
The only thing that I see that could balance this basket wall decor out more. Would be a smaller basket at the top of my focal piece. However, I am having a hard time finding the right piece that I like.
Make sure to measure your wall. That way you know how big to go with as far as basket size. This will also help with determining how many baskets you will need.
Let your creative side shine by creating your own basket wall decor. Think outside the basket and find whatever catches your eye. Multiple sizes will make the basket wall stand out. As well as how many baskets you use.
