We just can’t get enough of belly baskets. They are just perfect for so many things. Whether you have some extra toys, blankets or gorgeous greenery, belly baskets are ideal hosts for house plants and keeping little things together. The nice thing about belly baskets is that they suit just about any room in the house, from the lounge to the baby’s room, belly baskets are seriously versatile. Belly baskets are ethically sourced and handmade in Vietnam and come in different colour dips. Here are a few different ways with belly baskets!
Pile Them Up!
Use your belly baskets to store a variety of smaller items which you can neatly store on a shelf.
