School Auction Basket Idea

Organic Themed Gift Basket for School Auction

My friend Maria volunteered to make the school auction basket for the carnival this year. She decided on an eco-friendly theme. It was filled with gift cards, organic snacks, non-toxic beauty products, and eco-friendly household products. Maria enlisted my help to wrap it up and put it all together. I loved the result so I just had to share this fun school auction basket idea.

Time: 1- 2 hours


To go with the theme, we used recycled wrapping. For the basket we used a cardboard box she had from some pots and pans she bought. I covered it in brown grocery bags. I arranged all the goodies inside. I used another cardboard box inside to give height as well as crumbled brown grocery bags.

I also stenciled and cut out letters from old magazines to make words. I placed them on green circles with a glue stick. You have to be careful because the magazine tears easily.

On the front we put “organic”. On one side we put “Non GMO”.

Lastly, on the other side, “non-toxic”.

I used colorful paper to give it pops of color. I fringed green paper for grass on all four sides. It was easiest to hot glue it all on. I also made the paper flowers I love to make. You can get the tutorial here, or the one minute video tutorial here.
