When I think of nestling up during the cold weather months, one thing comes to mind: cozy throws. Of course, a cup of hot chocolate and a warm fire make an appearance, as well, but a wealth of throws is a must in my book. This adorable DIY rope basket provides an easy solution to the ever-present problem of where to store them all. And get this: No sewing necessary!

Twin sisters, bloggers, and do-it-yourselfers Sara and Melissa shared this project on their top-ranked blog last year. It reigns as the blog's most popular DIY project of 2015, and we would have to agree with the readers' consensus; it's love at first sight! 

The white roping gives off a casual coastal vibe, while the leather handles lend contrast and practicality. You truly won't believe just how simple it is to make such an eye-catching home accessory! For the full, step-by-step tutorial, head on over to Alice and Lois. Happy crafting!
