Introduction: Easy Halloween Basket Decoration

Picture of Easy Halloween Basket Decoration

I'm super excited about this project- And I think it turned out really well in the end!
These Halloween Baskets are great decorations, or for substitute "Goody Bags" at a kids party. (They could even decorate the baskets as part of the party- too!) They are also good just as decorations or props.

I got the baskets from here:

You can also get them from here....

I hope you enjoy this instructable! :)

Step 1: Materials:

Step 2: Decorate!

Pretty self explanatory. Be creative, remember the creepier the better! You can do a theme, or just go random with it!

I used 3 different stamps to get the effect on the handle and sides. I also used sequins, glue, and paint pens.

Step 3: Fill It

You can get giant bags of sweets from the supermarkets.
I got the "eyeball" chocolates from Tesco.
With the baskets I'm using, you could also fill them with cupcakes, small toys, even cookies!

Step 4: Done!

There you go- a super creepy Halloween basket filled with yummy sweets in less than 10 minutes!

If anyone has any questions, please comment below. Also, if you make this, please post a picture. I would love to see it :)
