Well, the time is here for mulled cider and candy corn. Wouldn't it be great fun to weave a basket to decorate your home for the season? I have searched the pattern sites for designs that have a fall or Halloween theme and I will share them with you now.

Jordan's Jack-o-Lantern by Jodi Shebester is available on BasketPatterns.com. It is a pumpkin shaped basket for your little trick or treater and features a spiral base, fixed handle, orange weavers and a facial caricature of reed embellishment. Another harvest basket pattern is Sharon Klusmann's Little Pumpkin Basket. Sharon offers several fall basket patterns. Try this Indian corn pottery tie-on or Candy corn basket tie-on, also from BasketPatterns.com to embellish your fall theme baskets.

Sheri L. Van Duyn has authored a free basketmaking pattern titled Fall in Love available on the Pattern Exchange of Just Patterns Magazine featuring autumn colors of dyed round and flat reed that is embellished with cut out gourd in the shapes of fall leaves and bittersweet berry pips.

From KMC Baskets and Folkart comes autumn designs on ceramic tie-on pumpkins and candy corn that can be applied as an embellishment to any basket's side. Wired leather leaves from Homestead Heirlooms are another seasonal touch for your basket projects. Rusty Country D Handles with Ghost/Jack/Cat or Witch/Bat/Jack from The Loft may be just the seasonal touch your Halloween baskets need.

Susan Reed-Fanfoni has authored a pattern for a Primitive Seasonal Door Basket which includes a pumpkin patch option. It is also available from basketpatterns.com. Another door basket, this time a free Fall craft pattern authored by Rhonda Krula, is offered by The Country Seat.

Another selection of fall themed baskets is available at East Troy Basketry. East Troy also offers a pattern for Linde's Pumpkin Pie Basket. This basket is woven of flat and round reed in subtle Fall colors in a shape that will allow you to comfortably and safely carry your pie to grandma's. Use a mini basket to create a Black Cat Nut Cup or stitch a Bat Basket using plastic canvas with a free pattern from Gramma Lowe.

Baskets of Joy offers a free basket pattern for a rectangular basket. This piece can be altered to include harvest colors. It would make a great basket to serve Halloween candy to your Trick or Treaters. This dainty Pumpkin Crochet Basket Jack 'o lantern would be fun to stitch up for your Halloween festivities or choose one a bit larger or knit and felt a pumpkin basket.

Learn to carve a Jack-o-lantern out of a hard shelled gourd with this pattern and instructions from Baskets of Joy. This is one of my favorite Halloween ideas. Create a sunflower basket carved from a fresh pumpkin and filled with bright, cheerful sunflowers. What a great idea to use for a centerpiece at a fall gathering or guild meeting. Use the instructions from Martha Stewart to carve your pumpkin basket.

Well, roll up your sleeves and get weaving. The ghosts and goblins will be at your door before you know it. I'll look forward to meeting with you on Facebook, follow me on Twitter or contact me.
