Festive Halloween Basket


 I picked up this pumpkin basket at Michael's a while back thinking I'd use it outside but then I decided I'd keep it indoors so it wouldn't get weathered.

It seemed like I was seeing these crazy witch's legs everywhere this year except most of them were already used with a wreath or some kind of arrangement.  I believe I found these at Hobby Lobby and though I wanted stripes I settled for polka dots!

I stopped in at Michael's to get a foam piece to hold the legs.  I picked up this cake form because it's very tall and it fit right in there like it was made for it.

Sorry about the terrible picture but anyway I found a wreath (all Halloween is 50% off at Michael's) and decided I'd attach it to the top of the basket.

 I used a wire to tie onto the side handles of the basket to secure the wreath.
Then I poked the crazy legs in.  I had to adjust them a couple of times afterwards.

I put some of that shredded grass filler down inside to cover up the white foam.  I like keeping that stuff on hand for various things- even stuffing a gift bag.
I am just beginning to think about Halloween.  I usually only put out some halloween stuff for a week, but I decided I needed to work on this to be sure I had everything I needed.  As it turned out it was quite simple and that's a good thing!



 For those who prefer no orange.

Did you notice the mouth looks like a bat?

  7. Too cute, Liz! I've been seeing those witch legs all over, too, and I think they're hilarious. I even had a friend who put striped stockings on the legs of a table and put black boots on the legs! Looked like the table had witch legs! Crazy creative. ;)

  12. This is just adorable! I'd seen the legs, and thought, cute, but didn't really know how to use them.
    Your creative centerpiece is just perfect no matter where you place it. Love!!!
