Are you looking for some spooky DIY Kids Halloween Basket ideas this year? Look no further, I have been putting together a little DIY Halloween basket for Finlay!  I first came across these baskets many years ago from Oh So Amelia. I was so impressed but at the time, BUT Finlay was still very little and I didn’t think he would get much out of them back then. Fast forward a few years and now Finlay is older, I thought it would be an ideal time to throw one together! With a couple of baby bits thrown in. Plus if you have been visiting my blog over the last few weeks you may have seen I have gone Halloween stir crazy, as I love it, so it was perfect to post up for my Blogoween series!

As suggested by Kerry from Oh so Amelia, I went searching on EBAY for my basket and I managed to get hold of one for about £4. I also bought a little bit of Halloween ribbon and made a bow for the front. I have actually managed to recycle a lot of bits and bobs for this basket that we had lying around. Finlay hasn’t really looked at much of his Halloween stuff for the past year, so I think I can get away with it!

  1. Oh I absolutely love this idea, I’m sure he will be thrilled. I’ve seen Christmas Eve baskets done before but never for Hallowe’en, what a brilliant idea. Will be keeping this in mind for next year. Thanks for sharing!
