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.
