Before you throw those old garden hoses out, think again, because you can transform a garden hose into a basket.

This DIY transformation of a garden hose into a basket is very simple and easy to make.

Our next-door neighbour recently threw out several garden hoses. He said his son had given him several new ones. “Out with the old, in with the new,” he added. It’s always a shame to see perfectly good items go to waste, but sometimes it’s necessary. In this case, our neighbour’s son had given him new hoses, so he had to get rid of the old ones. We’re sure they’ll be put to good use.

When I saw the DIY project that involved old garden hoses, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to put my neighbour’s “trash” to good use. I asked if I could have the hoses and he agreed. Now, I’ve upcycled those hoses into something that everyone can enjoy.

I went home happy, knowing that I could be breathing new life into old garden hoses. I had been wanting something to store my garden tools in, and a garden hose basket seemed like the perfect solution. I gathered my materials, and my garden tools and got to work, carefully measuring and folding the hoses to the correct size.

I secured them together with strong zip ties, making sure the basket was secure and sturdy. Then, I added a handle so I could easily carry it around the garden. I stepped back to admire my handiwork, and I was so pleased with the results. The transformation of this garden hose into a basket was exactly what I had been wanting, and it was so simple and easy to make.

We made four beautiful baskets out of old garden hoses. Two we use to hold tools in the garden, and one is in the kitchen holding freshly cut flowers. The other one, I gave to my mother-in-law – and she liked it, too! We’re really happy with how these baskets turned out! It’s a great way to repurpose old garden hoses, and they look great too. We’ll definitely be making more of these in the future.
