I love the look of big rope baskets to corral blankets in a living room.  This one from Amazon is a favorite, it would be perfect in a bedroom or next to the couch.

I figured I could make a smaller version myself and sure enough with just a little hot glue and rope I made a few decorative bowls for about $1 each.

3.  As the sides of the bowl curve, coil the rope so it curves along the bowl.  Use hot glue every inch or so to secure the rope.

4.  To add color, wrap a length of embroidery floss around the rope then secure with hot glue and continue to coil.  When the bowl is finished you can snip off the ends of the embroidery floss.
