Halloween Touch for Ikea Apple Basket

I popped into my local Ikea yesterday and found these really cute apple baskets.  For only $9.99 each, I knew I could add a spooky twist to them.  So I did!
Because I also want to be able to use them for other holidays/seasons, I knew I did not want to spray paint anything on them.  I recently bought Cricut's Halloween cartridge, so I printed out this spooky graphic onto black cardstock.

I used Sticky Dots to stick it onto the front.  Now I can peel it off when Halloween is over and use the basket again and again!  I'm working on the other one as we speak.

I'm not sure how the paper will stand up to the elements, but I am planning on displaying these on our porch.

That's such a great idea - I love seeing Ikea things prettified - or spookified in this case!!!

Very cute! I'm sure you'll get year round use out of these baskets.

Fantastic! I love that you can change these up for other holidays. It may be a bit of work but maybe encase the cut out in clear contact paper and trim leaving just a bit around the edges to keep moisture out?
