How To Decorate Your Home With African Baskets

If you find yourself searching for ideas on how to decorate your home with African baskets, then you’ve come to the right place! African baskets add just about the right amount of warmth, beauty and elegance to your home & living space.

What’s the simple definition of a basket? But wait… let me answer that rhetorically. When I think of a basket I think about an object that could hold a bunch of flowers or something that is aesthetically interwoven for the purpose of decoration.

When you buy a new home or move into a new apartment there are a couple of things that might occupy your mind in terms of making the ambiance of your home look welcoming and beautiful.

Have you taken a momentarily gaze into the sky? I guess at some point you have. It might have been at the night hour when the stars begin to scintillate the dark expanse of the sky or when a motley bow of colors stretches like an arch from one side of the sky to the other commonly called a rainbow.

This was because the Creator thought that as an idea to place up there as a design to make this planet we call earth look beautiful from a visual point of view. Hmm. I am stretching this topic too deep but that’s just me… Just trying to help you catch my point.


So, now let’s say you have just finished building your house or moved into an apartment like I earlier mentioned. You may have thought of ideas to make the interior beautiful.

If adding up a basket that looks just stunning isn’t part of the design paradigm then I think you should do a rethink.

Tip 1: You will have to make a loophole from one tip of the line.

Tip 2: After you have created a loophole, then pass it through the center of the basket. This is the step that actually holds the basket in an upright position against the wall.

Tip 3: Although, you may use a small nail to hold the basket against the wall, however the only slight defect about this hint is that it could damage most of the basket from a closeup view.

Tip 4: You may prevent hint number 3 from damaging your basket by having a hook on the wall and then hanging the basket with the loophole line. Did you notice how neatly its held against the wall? That’s what I am talking about!
