I love doing crafts and most of all I love coming up with cool ways to reuse containers, (I keep anything that looks like it would hold candy or home-made goodies).
This basket once held fresh peaches, but now has been transformed into a Halloween container fit for any gift-giving need.
What You Need;
~ Plastic produce basket (with or without lid)
~ Decorative Paper
~ Black Raffia String
~ Orange Ribbon
~ Halloween Stickers
I simply cut paper to fit around the basket and glued into place. The same for the orange ribbon. I then unravelled the Raffia String, made a bow in the middle and glued in place at the end of the basket. Repeat for other side. Hint: To hide the ribbon ends you can place a sticker or make smaller bows or just criss-cross as I did for this one.
The lid had holes already in it so I weaved the Raffia as it comes off the roll in and out of the holes leaving some slack at the top - glue in place. Cut a length of paper or ribbon for the handle and glue. Decorate with Halloween stickers (optional).
Fill with goodies.
Makes a great project for the kids. And the recipents LOVE it.
