Do not! I repeat…Do not go visit today’s blog swapping blog UNLESS you have at least two hours to dedicate to eye candy, project envy and are willing to drool on yourself! I L-O-V-E love Amy over at The Idea Room and feel honored to have her come for a little play date!! Trust me you’ll love her and all her stuff!
Ok Amy… Take it away! And friends, Consider yourself warned!
I am so excited to be able to hijack (*ahem* “borrow) Blue Cricket Designs for the day. I love this blog! While I am blogging here, Becca is blogging over at my place today…The Idea Room. By the way, my name is Amy and I am a married, stay-at-home mother of five. I am going to share a little tutorial today for making a Halloween treat bucket for your Trick-or-Treaters.
First you will need to find a bucket of some sort. I found some like this at my local thrift store for 50 cents each. I found my Halloween themed scrapbook paper at Ben Franklin Crafts.
I measured and pre-cut my paper and then cut a slit and a hole for the handle attachment. Then I used Mod Podge and glued the paper to the bucket. When the Mod Podge dried, I added another 2 coats of Mod Podge to the top the paper to protect it from the elements.
Now you little trick-or-treaters will have a fun bucket to collect all their Halloween goodies in. I also think you could use these to pass out candy for the Trick-or-Treaters who come to your house!
I have a lot more fun Halloween recipes and decorating ideas on my site. Here are just a few examples:
