DIY IKEA Sarlacc Laundry Basket

We’re big advocates for laundry hampers in the bedroom, but one common flaw is throwing clothes towards the hamper and not quite making it in. This simple hack applied to IKEA’s $14.99 Fyllen laundry hamper ensures everything lands in place.

Pierre added a cardboard neck and supports, allegedly inspired by the Sarlacc from Star Wars. It’s an easy hack but one that makes sense if you constantly find clothes scattered near the basket rather than in it.
