Please forgive my poor photography, I need to learn about lighting, I've decided this will make my pictures look better! Anyways, I cannot take credit for the idea of making trick or treat buckets out of sand buckets, I saw this idea on FB through Market Mommies but loved the idea and it just so happened that it was nearing the end of summer and sand buckets were being clearanced everywhere! So I bought a bunch of buckets, store clerks everywhere think I'm the weird sand bucket collector!
Of course just like most of my other projects this too was super easy! A perfect Halloween gift for my tiny person and the tiny people that I watch!
I removed the shovel so now I have tons of shovels...this will lead to a future post! I took a white paint marker and wrote the child's name on the bucket.
and a spider web on the side...let dry
I then shadowed the letters in the child's name and drew a little spider with a black paint marker (which turns out to be more like a tick b/c I only gave it 6 legs....yeah..... Do not make this mistake :) I let the black dry before I put 2 red eyes with a red paint marker on the
The issue I then realized we were going to have is that tiny people are not always easy on things and the paint marker scratches off easily. So
...........My son loves his bucket and I LOVE personalized items....win win!
There are a few more days before Halloween so you may want to go find some buckets!
