Hanging Basket with Pegs

Baskets find many uses around the home. Hanging baskets can be used as a "catch-all" to hold a variety of items or to hold a bouquet of dried flowers.  Baskets woven around a towel bar handle with wooden pegs have many possible uses.  Towels, keys, scarfs and more can hang from the pegs.

The splint basket is shaped to match the width of the handle and peg bar.  The splints can be various sizes to create a thick and thin pattern as the sides are raised to a desired height.  Natural reed can be woven and later stained to a darker tone.
