Basket themes for raffles or auctions include movies, food, the spa, sports and even the lottery. Make a lottery basket for a charity auction or even as a gift. Include lottery scratch-offs as well as lottery tickets. Decorate your basket simply so that those who are bidding on it will be able to see exactly what is in the basket. Layer a couple pieces of cellophane over the basket so that its contents can be seen but it still looks like a gift.

Things You'll Need

  • Lottery scratch-offs and tickets
  • Plastic card holders
  • Plastic pot
  • Floral foam
  • Fake moss
  • Cellophane
  • Scissors
  • Literature about lottery odds
  • Fake branches
  • Decorative stones or gems
  • Hole punch
  • Decorative ribbon

Make a ticket scratch-off bouquet by attaching scratch-offs to colorful plastic card holders. The scratch-offs act like flowers while the card holders act like stems. Either wrap the card holders with a ribbon like a flower bouquet or stick the card holders into a pot full of flower foam. Decorate the foam by gluing fake moss to it to make it look like an actual pot.

Include a variety of lottery tickets from your state's lottery and colorful scratch-offs. Include a book on how to play the lottery or a sheet on what the odds are and literature on how to increase your odds.

Make a lottery tree. Place fake tree branches into a container filled with Styrofoam and decorative rocks or gems. Punch a hole at the top of each scratch-off or lottery ticket and thread decorative ribbon through each one. Tie the ribbons to the branches of the tree.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep track of the value of the basket so you can include this on the bidding sheet.
  • Check your state's lottery rules before making a lottery basket, including age restrictions.
