Here's a couple more ideas for the candy buckets

This hugs bucket was kind of a pain. The wrappers took longer to get off and they tore really easily. I had planned on making a design with the lines on the wrappers but since most of them tore, they just got slapped on there every which way. I thought it still worked because the flowers and ribbon with the embellishments don't make the lined stand out too bad. I think the bucket should have been spry painted brown first though. Maybe I'll just try to paint the handle or add brown ribbon. We'll see.

Alright you crafty people, grab a bucket and [re]beautify it... and then send me pics. I'd love to see them!

All the buckets from this post are from target in the Dollar Spot right as you first walk in the store. It seems like they have different sized buckets throughout the year and I always just grab a few when I'm there. It doesn't matter if they're an embossed bucket or one with print, I just grab em up.
Hope that helps!
