How to decorate an ordinary trick-or-treat bucket
Take a boring $1 pumpkin bucket and make it a little more fun for Halloween. Grab some cute Halloween fabric and learn how to make a custom trick-or-treat bucket for your kids.
- Plastic pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket
- Assorted Halloween fabrics
- Pinking shears
- Mod Podge
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.
