Dollar Store Trick or Treat Buckets Rock!

While I was in Dollar Tree the other day, I saw these little black buckets.  I thought they would be perfect for trick or treating. 

They would be fine just as they are but I decided to dress them up a bit.  This was so much fun.  I tried to personalize each one to each of my kids' costumes or taste.  Add a little paint, mod podge, stickers, vinyl (Oh, how I wish I had a Silhouette!), ribbons, fabric, scrapbook paper -whatever you have to make it yours.  I think they rock! 

I can't decide which is my favorite...

I really like all the frilly details I added to the girls' but the boys' are the bomb too!  I mean, just look at that skull!  Lucky me, I get to enjoy them all!

  6. I love that cat bucket! I saw these buckets at the dollar store just the other day. They are pretty big. I picked one up and thought, "now I'm sure someone in blogland could make something cute out of this." Then I put it back and moved on because I couldn't think of anything to do with it. ha! Now I wish I would have bought a couple.

  7. Very cute and fun! I have a new way to look at our dollar store buckets, hmm... :)
