Add Second and Third Brackets

Measure 10 inches up from the top of the first bracket and rotate the pipe so that the first bracket is turned about a quarter from the second. Mark as you did in step four, and attach the second bracket. Attach the third bracket 10 inches up and on the opposite side from the second bracket.

Cut Supports for Wicker Baskets

Measure the inside of the bottom of a medium-sized square wicker basket (image 1), then mark and cut to size a mounting board from a scrap piece of 3/4-inch plywood (image 2). Repeat two more times for the remaining baskets.

Attach Wicker Baskets

With the mounting board inside the basket (image 1), firmly hold the basket against the pipe with the bracket centered on the bottom (image 2). Attach with 1 1/2-inch wood screws and a drill. Repeat for remaining baskets.
