First, you will need to gather all of your goodies to make these Halloween baskets.

Step 1. On the green cardstock paper, draw out a Frankenstein head for the front of your treat baskets. It can be approximately 1 1/2 inches on the bottom and taper up to 2 inches at the top. It should be 2 1/4 inches tall. Using the diagram below, draw the faces on your Frankensteins. And don’t worry! Even if you are not an artist you will certainly be able to create these simple faces.
