Starfish Basket DIY

Pottery Barn-Inspired Summery Starfish Décor

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member designingmainstreet from the Su Casa group:

Earlier this Summer I saw some cute baskets with starfish in a Pottery Barn catalog. I knew I had to re-create this look in our living room. We already have two sea grass baskets on the bottom of the bookshelf. They are functional but nothing special. I found the last two starfish that I had stashed away, some string, and scissors. Those are the only items I needed for this project. The first step was to loop the string around the basket handle and fasten it to the starfish. I find it's helpful to check if any of the legs are irregular and lumpy. Using a lumpy leg helps the string to catch. Then I used the remaining string and wrapped it around the starfish leg several times using the double length of string. The last step was to tie the string in the back and trim the ends.

Keep reading to see how the baskets turned out!

The result is a version of Pottery Barn's basket for the price of two starfish. If you want to see more starfish and other DIY projects please visit me at Designing Main Street!
