This Halloween scary snake basket is sure to bring screams of fright and delight to your trick or treating visitors. When I saw it on Etsy, I just knew that I had to make my own version of it for my front steps.
The original project was inspired by the movie Beetlejuice.
Imagine how people would jump if you had this on your front door step? It’s perfect to have outside on your porch or entry step to add some spooky Halloween curb appeal. I could not find directions for this project online, just this photo but it looked easy enough to do. (It was once for sale on Etsy for $40 but does not seem to be available for sale now.) All I needed were the snakes. Not such an easy thing as it turned out!
This Halloween Scary Snake Basket is Great for Seasonal Curb Appeal
When I found the picture of this Halloween scary snake basket a while ago I thought it was so cute. I intended to make a similar one for myself but could never find just the right snakes.
I looked all over for some bendable snakes or even something I could make into bendable snakes (my favorite kind of project.) I had almost given up on finding just the right supplies, when lady luck found me.
On a recent trip to Michael’s craft store, I found some supplies that allowed me to make my own version of this scary Halloween prop. It didn’t turn out quite the same as this one, but I like it a lot just the same. I used these supplies:
In just a couple of hours, I had my own version of the scary snake basket. Here it is in all it’s slithering glory!The full instructions for this Halloween snake basket an be found on my main site, The Gardening Cook. You will find a step by step tutorial and full list of supplies. I like this project even better, knowing that I made my own snakes instead of buying some in the store.
