Wicker baskets are one of those few things that are actually great for so many uses. Wicker is most commonly used for baskets and for various types of indoor/outdoor furniture, but there are many ways to use wicker baskets for the holidays. Let’s look at three ways you can turn that wicker basket into a holiday delight:
1. Basket of Pine Cones: spruce up your living room with some holiday cheer, and load up your wicker basket with pine cones.
2. Basket of Christmas Ornaments: if you’re like a lot of other people out there, you have an overwhelming amount of Christmas tree ornaments, half of which you never use. Why not stuff that basket with leftover ornaments? If you’re clever you can sneak in some lights so that the ornaments light up!
3. Basket of Christmas Books: one common use for wicker baskets is to stuff them with books. Given the time of the year, stuff them with classic Christmas books like How The Grinch Stole Christmas!, A Christmas Carol, Little Women, The Polar Express, The Gift of the Magi, The Nutcracker, and The Night Before Christmas.
Have any other ideas for holiday basket stuffers? Show them off! What makes wicker baskets so great is precisely that they’re so versatile. They can be used for anything, and during any time of the year. Happy holidays!
