In the realm of boho decor, basket gallery walls are, without a doubt, the happening craze. Even if you are not particularly into boho style, I have noticed basket wall decor making its way into coastal and farmhouse design. Given there is basically no escaping this trend (which I completely dig), I want to show you the easiest and cheapest way to create a DIY basket gallery wall.
I am so proud to say that I made this bad baby for under $15 and in about 10 minutes time. The key to finding boho baskets on the cheap is to hit up your local thrift stores. I pretty much scoff at any basket priced at places like Target or Homegoods. Why pay their inflated prices when you can find rare, fabulous ones for only $1/piece.
There was about a three month period (during the whole pool excavation fiasco) where I would go to thrift stores just to check out their basket selection. For those of you who have never tried it, thrift shopping is a great way to pass the time when your broke ass is feeling down and sorry for yourself. I got each of these baskets for under $1 (I paid a little more for the large blue one).
Beyond the basket gallery wall in my kitchen, I actually racked up more of an extensive collection throughout my home.

How to hang a basket gallery wall
So, the easiest way to hang a gallery wall, and not screw up your walls, is by using these picture hanging strips.
Given I was using a medium which doesn’t inflict any damage to walls (this is what I used to hang the baskets), I was very haphazard regarding the composition of my basket gallery wall. I basically just winged it, and began by centering the largest basket and moving on from my center point with the smaller baskets.
Simply place one of the strips on the back of the basket and another on the wall. Be sure to place firm pressure on the basket , against the wall, for about one minute. Repeat with all of your baskets.
I must admit that I was concerned the strips would not be able to hold the weight of the baskets, but it has been six months and everything has remained perfectly in place. Even better, if I decide I am over the whole thing, I can easily remove the gallery wall (without any harm to my wall).
Now get out there and design some good vibes. Please also be sure to spread the love and Pin….
