Mini Halloween Treat Basket

Treat holders for Halloween are my favorite thing to craft even though we are not in a neighborhood with trick-o-treaters.  I first saw the Lawn Fawn basket die way back in Easter but felt that it was usable for other occasions, too.  Here it is fall already and I'm happily using it for a Halloween treat basket...great for co-workers because of the giant chalkboard erasable clothespin.
 I wrote 'BOO' (with an erasable Bistro marker) but the recipient's name would be good too.  The ghosts and tombstones used are simply Dress It Up buttons (from HM Ben Franklin Crafts) with the shanks snipped off.  I love the Spellbinders die ( from HM BFC) that cuts the wrought iron graveyard spooky! I think when I give the Halloween treat baskets I will include colorful tissue or shredded paper to make it more festive.  Okay, time to craft more scary stuff!

We don't celebrate Halloween here but I'm always fascinated by the spooky stuff.;)
