“Offering happiness in a box since 1998”
October 17, 2012
1. Basket: Instead of using a traditional basket to store your Halloween treats, be creative. Great items to use for a basket are: Halloween treat bags, monster head tote bags, plastic pumpkin lanterns, or even just a simple black box. Make sure it is sized enough that all items will fit snugly. Party stores, craft stores, and stores that sell home decor items are great places to find items to use for a basket.
2. Goodies: Halloween themed chocolate and candies are readily available this time of year and will give the basket the right look. Halloween pretzels, Halloween marshmallows, Halloween pumpkins stuffed with Reese’s peanut butter, sweet skull and bone pies, gummy and skeleton bugs, marshmallow eyeballs and eye pops are just a few of the freebies. Halloween available to add to cart. With this holiday being so candy-based, stores are filled with a plethora of items to choose from.
3. Toys: Whether the basket is designed for a young person or just someone young at heart, a few Halloween themed toys will be a fun addition to the basket. Monster ball and mug set, silly string, Halloween yo-yo, glow-in-the-dark bracelets and necklaces, glowing vampire fangs or stuffed animals adorned with Halloween costumes and even CDs of spooky Halloween sounds all make great basket activity items.
4. Filler: Add some type of filling to the bottom of the basket such as tissue paper, corrugated putty or foam.
5. Presentation: A good idea is to have all items facing outward, making the basket look good on the front or back. To fill in the gaps between items and keep them from sliding down, add fun-sized candies. Another great way to keep things from moving is to use dots of tacky glue. Just glue the items to each other, but make sure the items are decoratively glued together.
6. Use a decorative themed bow: Hand tie a bow made of ribbon or fabric in Halloween patterns or colors, such as orange or black.
7. Finally, attach a handwritten gift card
