The nights are shorter, there is a slight brisk to the air. Fall is here, and many people will be having Fall parties & gatherings. Bringing this Fall-themed gift basket will show your hostess your appreciation for their hard work.
Full disclosure: I am NOT a crafty person. I have no skills what-so-ever, so I was absolutely amazed at how well this project turned out. If you need a cool beverage while making the basket, why not have a caramel apple cider float.

What You Need To Make This Fall-Themed Gift Basket
The beauty of this project is that less is more. You don’t need a lot of items to make a beautiful basket. I already had this white basket in the house, along with the white shredded paper, but you can use anything that you like. I do recommend trying to use one with a handle to make it easier to transport.
- A simple basket
- Sweet Fall Sign
- Carved Thanksgiving Pumpkins
- Halloween Pumpkin Train
- Decorative Fall Leaves
How To Make The Fall-Themed Gift Basket
First you are going to take your basket and fill it with paper to help prop up the items so they can easily be seen.
Next you are going to add the wooden Fall sign. I love the contrast of the light text on the dark background.
Next add the carved pumpkins to the basket. I LOVE how the colors compliment each other.
Now arrange the pumpkin train on the other side. I had to control myself from keeping the Halloween Train for myself. It is really cute, and very well made.
Finally, take the time arrange the Fall leaves throughout the basket to hide the white paper. The great thing about the leaves is they can be recycled into decorations at the home of the hostess.
There! You are finished with a truly amazing basket. The basket takes less than 20 minutes to assemble, and will make a true statement when you take it to your party.
As a finishing touch, cover the basket in a clear craft bag, and tie it off with a Fall-themed ribbon. You are all set!
