How To Make A Laundry Basket Holder

One way to help keep things organized (and avoid having to constantly pick up after everyone) is to have a designated place for everything. This is where laundry baskets come in handy.

But even laundry baskets can be a pain if they’re always tipping over or taking up too much space. That’s why I decided to show you how to make your own laundry basket holder!

Making your own laundry basket holder is a great way to save some money, and it can be a fun project too. In this article, we will show you how to make a laundry basket holder using just a few simple tools and materials.

We will also provide a step-by-step guide on how to make this project. So let’s get started!

Requirements

To make a laundry basket holder, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • A piece of wood (at least 24″ long and 6″ wide)
  • Ruler or a straight edge
  • Paint or a sealant (optional)
  • Paintbrush (optional)
  • Screws (at least 2″ long)
  • Drill
  • Saw
  • Laundry basket

Instructions

1. Cut the wood to size – using a saw, cut the wood to size so that it is 24″ by 24″.

2. Drill the holes – using a drill, drill two holes in each corner of the wood.

3. Cut out the shape – using a jigsaw, cut out the shape of the laundry basket holder from the centre of the wood.

4. Sand down the edges – using sandpaper, sand down any rough edges on the laundry basket holder.

5. Paint or seal (optional) – if you want, you can paint or seal the laundry basket holder with a coat of paint or sealant.

6. Place the laundry basket in the holder – once the holder is complete, place your laundry basket inside.

And that’s it! Your very own laundry basket holder is now complete. This project is fairly simple and only requires a few tools and materials. Plus, it’s a great way to save some money on buying a new laundry basket holder

More Tips And Advice To Make A Laundry Basket Holder

Using PVC Pipes

One option for making a laundry basket holder is to use PVC pipes. You will need 4 PVC pipes that are 10 inches in length and 4 PVC pipes that are 12 inches in length. First, cut two of the 10 inch pipes and two of the 12 inch pipes in half.

Next, take the remaining 10 inch pipe and make a mark at the 5 inch mark. Do the same thing with the remaining 12 inch pipe. Now, it’s time to start assembling your holder. Take two of the 10 inch halves and attach them to two of the 12 inch halves using the marks you made as a guide.

Once those four pieces are together, do the same thing with the other four pieces. You should now have two crossed sections.

To finish, take the two remaining 10 inch pipes and insert them into the top of the crossed sections. Your laundry basket holder is now complete!

Using Wood

Another option for making a laundry basket holder is to use wood. You will need 4 wooden boards that are 2 feet in length and 4 wooden boards that are 1 foot in length.

First, cut two of the 2 foot boards and two of the 1 foot boards in half. Next, take the remaining 2 foot board and make a mark at the 1 foot mark.

Do the same thing with the remaining 1 foot board. Now, it’s time to start assembling your holder. Take two of the 2 foot halves and attach them to two of the 1 foot halves using the marks you made as a guide.

Once those four pieces are together, do the same thing with the other four pieces. You should now have two rectangles. To finish, take the two remaining 2 foot boards and attach them to the top of the rectangles. Your laundry basket holder is now complete!

Whichever method you choose, be sure to follow these tips for a sturdy and lasting holder:

  • Make sure all your cuts are straight and accurate
  • Use glue and/or screws to hold everything together
  • Sand down any rough edges before finishing
  • Apply a coat or two of sealant or paint to protect your creation from the elements.
