How to Make Homemade Halloween Gift Baskets

Next, you will consider the types of Halloween treats you will include in your homemade gift basket. Choose some colorful gift-wrap paper for wrapping some of the items you will include. However, before you begin to fill your gift basket, you can crumple up some of the colorful gift-wrap paper and then place that in the bottom of the container to give the contents a lift up as well as protecting the items as a cushion beneath the load.

After you have the cushion of crumpled paper in the bottom of your basket, you can begin slowly adding the items you plan to include. Be sure to take your time as you add each item since, you want to make the most of the space you have available to fill.

Make a Homemade Halloween Gift Basket

After placing all your Halloween theme products and items into the gift basket you are making, you will need to wrap the basket and contents to prevent them from falling out. Find some Halloween theme or colored cellophane wrap to do this. Measure off enough cellophane wrap so that you can set the basket in the middle of the cellophane wrap with enough on all sides that you can bring all the sides up together at the top of the gift basket. After gathering all the sides of the cellophane up to the top, you can secure it with a twisty tie and a colorful ribbon to match the occasion. This should prevent the gift basket from opening and all its contents spilling out.

Alternately, you might enjoy sewing. If you do, you may enjoy making your own homemade gift baskets. You can use pre-made patterns like this one to create some lovely gift ideas for just about anyone on your gift giving list.

Happy Halloween Greetings

...let your friends know how much you care...

Remember, to include a Halloween greeting card with an envelope for the individual who will receive your Halloween gift basket.

Be sure to include some happy Halloween sentiments and then attach the card to the basket with some tape.

Alternately, you can place the card inside the basket before sealing it, just be careful not to crush the card during transporting it.

Then again, you can simply carry the Halloween greeting card and then hand the card to the person along with your homemade Halloween gift basket.
