Conundrum Baskets. Will it be a Trick or a Treat?

Do you know what creeps up on you in September??  October!  

This is the time of year we love to dig out the fake spiders and other creepy stuff for chills, kicks and parties!  I have a really simple project today that will go from October through November.  Read on to see how fun and simple it is.

You will need:
  • Joy® Embroidered Letters:  1-1/2" Black:  T, R, I, C, K, T, R, E, A, T
  • baskets: pre-painted chipwood:  one 7" tall X 11" wide; one 6-1/2" tall x 9-1/2" wide
  • burlap:  natural; 2" wide trim or cut from yardage
  • glue
  • scissors
  • *Option:  Use orange spray paint if chipwood is natural


1.  Paint the baskets orange if they are not already painted.  Allow to dry thoroughly.
2. Adhere burlap trim around the outside of the baskets.
3.  Remove the release paper from the back of each letter.  Adhere to the front of the basket. Note:  The placement adhesive on the back of each letter will hold the letters in place with ironing.  The letters can then be removed after Halloween and the baskets will serve you through Thanksgiving! Save them for next year.  

3.  Add toys or a plant (mums are good) to the Trick basket.  Fill the Treat basket with sweet treats.  Enjoy!

Joy® embroidered letters can be applied to most surfaces. They have a heat-activated adhesive that is fabric and washing machine friendly.  They come in many sizes and shapes for all of your creative needs and are available at your local craft stores.
