Lately I’ve been seeing tobacco baskets popping up all over the place. They can be a great way to incorporate farmhouse flair into your home. Even if the farmhouse trend isn’t your thing, it can serve as a way to incorporate natural wood elements into your interior design.
If you’re looking to purchase the real thing from an antique store, it’s going to set you back a couple hundred dollars. Maybe you can snag one at a barn sale or a flea market for less. But lucky for those of us on a budget, you can find replica tobacco baskets from Hobby Lobby, Amazon and Decor Steals from time to time.
Once you get your hands on one… how do you decorate with a tobacco basket? Here are 5 simple ways you can style a tobacco basket within your home.
- Hang on a wall.
I’d say this is the most popular way I’ve seen tobacco baskets used. You can hang on a wall just the basket itself to keep it simple. Or you can attach some faux florals or include multiple baskets to display as a form of wall art.
2. Use as a tray.
Looking for the perfect focal piece for your coffee table? Why not use a tobacco basket as a tray to hold a few decorative items like books, candles and flowers. You can even make it more practical by adding in your TV remote or pretty coasters.
