5 Ways to Decorate with a Tobacco Wall Basket

5 Ways to Decorate with a Tobacco Basket

Recently, I started sharing decor tips on my Instagram stories every Wednesday called ‘5 Way Wednesday.” Basically, I take one product ands style it five different ways.  I think versatility gives value to an item. So, when you tire of using a piece of decor one way, you can style it differently in another space.

Joanna Gaines made the tobacco basket popular as wall decor. Similarly, I am sharing  5 ways to style a tobacco wall basket that has a pocket on the front for decor! You can find the basket at Pin It Co, here. Use code CUTER20 for 20% off purchases.


The tobacco wall basket is used in a gallery wall with vintage 7 chippy wood finds.

1. Potted Greenery

Keep it simple! Just add one or two pots of faux greenery to your tobacco wall basket.  For instance, I like these burlap wrapped plants from Hobby Lobby. You can even store real herbs in the wall basket on your patio or porch!

2. Linens and Faux Stems

First, fold decorative dish towels in the kitchen or roll a few washcloths in the bathroom.  Next, hang near the sink.  This acts in place of a towel bar for small spaces.  To add a fresh vibe, place 2-3 stems of greenery into the basket.

3. Books and Greenery

First, place 2-3 vintage, new or deconstructed books to the basket.  Next, add a faux plant orb like this From Susie!  This will look great mixed into a gallery wall in the family room.  In addition, I would hang it above a nightstand in a kids room to hold their favorite bed time story books.

4.  Plates and Florals

First, place seasonal florals into the tobacco wall basket. Next, layer in a few white plates or platters.  You can add a pop of color or pattern to personalize the decor too.  Specifically, this idea would look great in a breakfast or dining room.


5. Found Objects

This idea will allow you to display your collections of vintage finds and found objects.  For example, use any architectural salvage, antiques or items that you have found in nature.  For this basket, I placed a real birds nest in front of a chippy piece of architectural wood.  Next, I tucked in a faux magnolia bloom.

Tobacco Wall Basket Challenge: Centerpiece

I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to think outside the box to decorate with a tobacco basket .  Therefore, I came up with the idea to use it as a centerpiece on the table.  Simply, turn the basket on its side to use it like a tray.  Then, add greenery and a vase or collection of bottles with real or faux flowers.  Specifically, I used a mini wreath to ensure that greenery was well placed.
