Supplies:

1. Cut fabric squares

Use the pinking shears to cut squares out of the Halloween fabrics. My squares were approximately 2 inches on each side, but you can make them large or small.

2. Paint on the Mod Podge

Paint directly on the outside of the plastic bucket with the Mod Podge. Start by covering just a small portion of the bucket with Mod Podge.

3. Add some fabric

Press 1 of the fabric squares into the Mod Podge. Take time to smooth out any wrinkles in the fabric, then paint over the top of the fabric with more Mod Podge.

4. Cover the bucket

Keep adding fabric squares until the entire bucket is covered. Once the Mod Podge is dry, your pumpkin bucket is ready for trick-or-treating.
