Not your grandma's picnic basket!
I've been wanting a picnic basket for awhile, but have decided to put my own together because the ones I've seen really aren't that cute.
Since it's before Halloween, I found all these skully goodies...or get 'em 1/2 off the day after (I couldn't wait that long) :)

THINGS YOU NEED for a basket for 2!:
♥PICNIC TOTE BAG/BASKET
♥2 PLASTIC WINE GLASSES
♥2 PLASTIC WATER GLASSES
♥2 PLASTIC DINNER PLATES
♥2 PLASTIC DESSERT/APPETIZER PLATES
♥2 SETS OF FLATWARE: KNIFE,FORK,SPOON
♥2 CLOTH NAPKINS
♥WINE HOLDER
♥WATER BOTTLE
♥WINE BOTTLE OPENER
♥KITCHEN TOWEL
♥BAGS FOR DIRTY DISHES/TRASH
♥FOOD CONTAINERS
♥ICE PACKS
♥WATERPROOF BLANKET
♥FLASHLIGHT
♥(FAKE)CANDLE/HOLDER
+ ADD DELICIOUS FOOD!

NIGHTTIME PICNICS:
We have movie screenings at the cemetary during the summer, so this is perfect for that. Check out your area to see if you have drive-in movies or concerts in the park. You can also take it to the beach or mountain top and watch the sunset...or just go in the backyard!

  • Step 1

    CLOTH NAPKINS / KITCHEN TOWEL/BLANKET:
    On your black cloth napkins/towel/blanket; you can either stencil in white fabric paint, use an iron-on skull patch or even embroider them to make them match your picnic set.

  • Step 2

    FLATWARE:
    If you purchase knife, forks & spoons with the black handles, then you can stencil a small white skull on those as well...cute!

    WATER BOTTLE:
    Purchase a black or stainless water bottle and paint the skull on it.

    Don't forget to put the appropriate sealer over your skulls, so that they don't get scratched.

  • Step 3

    WINE HOLDER:
    You can buy an insulated one or sew one with skully fabric.
    If you sew one; you may want to leave room to insert a small ice pack to keep the vino chilled!

  • Step 4

    FOOD CONTAINERS:
    If you find some plastic black containers; you can put the skull on there as well.

  • Step 5

    Pack your goodies in a backpack, tote bag, picnic basket...whatever you want. Just make sure that you have enough room for your food.

    I found that various appetizers are fun to have instead of a main course. It's easier to eat finger foods...that reminds me; you may want to include a small bottle of hand sanitizer or wet naps, as well ;)

    HAVE FUN!
