Halloween/Fall "costumes"

I have several Longaberger baskets around my house and each serves a different purpose.  I also have "garters" so I can dress my baskets according to the season!   My first photo shows a basket all dressed up for Halloween with a black garter fabric that inclues bats, stars, ghosts, and pumpkins.  I like the bow that adds to this "costume".
           This basket has a green garter that features purple spiders, webs and candy corn. 
               This corner basket features a beige garter and bow with fall-colored leaves.
 This obviously isn't a basket but it is a cute sign that I bought at Home Goods the day after Halloween.  Can you say..."a $2.00 steal"?

This next basket is invaluable to our household.  It is our "media" basket and it holds the remote to the TV and the ceiling fan.  It also serves as a home for our beverage coasters and a phone when not on a charger.  I really like the bright Halloween colors in the "garter" and the darling harvest tie-on.
My baskets are ready for Halloween and their "costumes" are so cute and festive.

Very nice. Did you make the garters for the baskets? I ask because I used to weave baskets and I've got a bunch of them around the house.
