I was looking for thease wire baskets the other day and could not find one in the size I needed and never thought to make them myself. All you need is some gavalined wire,wirecutters and some jewerly wire to wrap the enda together. I never knew they would be this easy. I love that I can make any size I need for alot cheaper. Thanks.

Throne thing about similar store bought wire baskets is that the sizes, that is, the length, width and height, may not fit into the shelf or desk space that you have in your home and work space. By making your own, you can get the exact size you need to make your space look great and without having gaps that can make the space look even more cluttered. Great idea!

A great project to help sorting out my craft room. No matter how hard I try there are always bits and pieces of previous projects lying around. This inexpensive, easy to make storage basket is going to be just perfect for organizing my different crafts and, best of all, everything will still be visible.

I love DIY storage ideas where your items are organized, but you can still see them to know what you have. These mesh storage baskets are just what I need!

These look so easy to make and they're really expensive to buy, so this'll save me money in the long run.
