Halloween Scary Snake Basket

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!

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:

    If you have storage room, one possibility would be flex piping (like for bathroom water connections) and wind with either black electric leather table or that thin plastic twisted stop that they make to keep your cable wires all bound together with.
