Family Movie Night Gift Basket

I love making theme baskets for Christmas and this is the first of the ones I will show you.  I call this my 'Pinterest' gift as a few of the items were inspired from Pinterest.  The whole theme came together when I saw the cute little snowman microwave popcorns.  When I saw it on Pinterest, I came up with the idea of the Movie Basket.  

The tin that it is packaged in, is actually an old roasting tin that I picked up at a garage sale for $1!  I spray painted it red (I went for the red/black/white combo for movie) and I thought it was perfect for this.  It could later be used as a Christmas decoration, which is why I didn't add any 'movie' lettering to it, the thought was there though.  Inside the basket is: a blanket, a movie, Christmas colored smarties, chocolates, microwave popcorn, wine (for the adults) and some homemade pretzels, candy cane popcorn, candy cane hot chocolate mix and peppermint oreos.  


A close up of the snowmen popcorn (they have 3 kids, hence 3 popcorns).  These are what inspired the whole gift.  I used some Black V Striped twill to tie around the mitten touques.  There is a free printable for these snowmen here

Here are the homemade items in this basket.  All the baked goods are wrapped up in Marachino twine from The Twinery. The recipe tag on the Hot Chocolate mix (the jar was another garage sale item 25 cents!) is an Elle's Studio printable available at Jessica Sprague.    Once I had the idea of the movie theme and wanted mostly red and white, then I went with the Candy Cane theme for the goodies and the popcorn, cookies and hot chocolate mix were all recipes I found on Pinterest.  So it really isn't a time waster ;)  



I really love how this turned out.  I have a couple more gift baskets to share but one will have to be after Christmas as the recipient is a Facebook Friend and would see the project.
