DIY Wire Storage

Posted By Gudy Herder / January 31, 2014 / 26 Comments


Hello, you lovely readers of eclectic trends , it’s me Mette again from monsterscircus. I’m so thrilled to enter another great year here with you and Gudy. Most of you people love a clutter free and organized home. I’m not saying that you’re home is going to be highly organized with today’s project, but you will have endless possibilities to stay a bit organized with these wire baskets. It’s a super fast and budget-friendly project, so, what’s not to love?


Let’s get wired and organized.


Wire fence (garden wire)



Step 1. Snip the four corners of the wire as pictured.

Step 2. Bend up each side, so it will look as picture 2-3.

Step 3. Use the sandpaper to soften the wire ends and bend a small hook on each of the wires.

Step 4. Combine all sides and after securing all the sides, you’re done!


So simple, right? You can use it as it is or you can customize it, make the basket mimic your personal style and home – or use it as a color pop and spray paint it with a neon color.


It will be ideal for the upcoming Valentine’s Day, filled with some homemade treats, or a good read – great for fruits to stay fresh for longer – and of course, perfect for keeping your home office organized and your desk arranged neatly.


Thank you so much reading, I hope you enjoyed my project and might want to try it out, see you next time.

    This is GREAT! I can see so many possibilities for using these baskets and, as a wire-wrap jewelry maker, even adorning them a bit more if I wanted to use one on my night stand, for instance. I love your projects, Mette!

    Oh Mette, I have this terrible habit of piling paperwork on my kitchen bench, it’s actually the first thing you see when you walk into the room. Really bad for so many reasons I know. I’ve been thinking that I should get a nice place to place them at least so this could do the trick. xx M

      Hi Mel.
      Ha ha Mel I’m very familiar with those piling of paperwork and stuff:-) I’m actually trying to get the bagua flow at home, so gotta get rid of the bad habit too. You seem so organised Mel I’m sure, if you have piles of paperwork, they are very stylish:-)
      Hope you had a wonderful weekend,
      big hug Mette

      Hi Tina.
      Thank you very much Tina. I’m sorry if I haven’t pictured the process clear enough , but it’s acutally only just, snip, bend and combine:-) A great week to you and thank you for taking your time for a comment.

    I read your post a few days ago and can’t help but think of it whenever I pass by a fenced garden (and believe me, I’ve seen many in the past couple of days hihi). I realized you used a much prettier kind of wire than they use in the regular French garden, I’ll look our for some at the garden center ;) Thank you Mette and Gudy for showing this creative lady’s work! xx

    Its a really good idea for a creative basket, I would love to create one go two to my living room. :)

    But where do I buy the fence?? In cobber? :)

      Hi Simone.
      Ohh sounds good, I bet your friends is going to want one, when they see your creations:-)
      You can buy the fence at the hardware store (byggemarkedet) – I haven’t seen the wire fence in copper, but that could look pretty amazing and I would definitly it:-) I’ve just spray painted the baskets with copper paint, you can get that from the hardware store too.
      Enjoy your project Simone!

    What a cool project! May I borrow one pic from you to a blog post tomorrow? Of course with links and solicitation to my readers to go here and see how they can make these baskets. I would use it like I have done here:

    With a top photo in a collage with two other projects, and as a single photo with credits and with some text about the diy and a link to this page.

    Hope for a positive answer :)

    Best wishes,
    Ann Merete
