Halloween Ribbon Candy Basket

1

By Eleah

This week I threw together a cute little basket for handing out Halloween candy.  The supplies are simple and it only takes a few minutes to make. 

Supplies:

Directions:

  1. Spray a couple coats of polyurethane on all surfaces of the basket.  Let dry for 15-30 minutes between coats.  This step is optional, I just like the way it glosses the surface of a wooden basket.
  2. Line the basket with fabric.  Keep raw edges exposed or fold under and seam with craft glue.  No need to bother hemming with the machine since this is really just a seasonal project.
  3. Tie your piece of wire edge Halloween print ribbon in a bow + glue to the back center of the rim of the basket (onto the fabric of course).  Shape the arms + loops of the bow as desired.
  4. Cut the polka dot grosgrain ribbon into 8 inch segments and tie all of them into bows.  Along the remaining blank fabric covered rib of the basket, glue each bow using the sobo craft glue.
  5. Fill with candy and you’re done.
