Super, simple project today- and another fun Halloween project for you!

I found these super cute white pails at Dollar Tree in the Wedding section- you get 3 for $1.00

All I did was paint little faces on the pails with black diamond stickles, add little baggies of candy corn tied with some black ribbon and a tag made with punches, and stamped with a sentiment from the Pink by Design a Haunting we will Go stamp set and tied with Divine Twine! πŸ˜‰

Told ya it was super simple!! πŸ™‚ Wouldn’t these be cute for Β a “You’ve been Boo’d” in your office?

  3. It’s so funny that you posted these because I was just thinking today that an orange pail as a jack-o-lantern would be an amazing class treat for Halloween! These would also got perfect! Love them!

  4. Cute pails. My favorite Halloween project would have to be the different Halloween die cuts I made for the second grade class I help in. They do a scrapbook every year and I do all the die cuts for them. Never to young to start them scrap booking, right? They turn out so cute every year.

  5. Great idea, I might make some of these for my sons classmates. Did you see the ones I made for his teachers and aides for an end of year gift in June? I love these little buckets tehy are so versatile! Thanks for the chance to win your adorable stamps.
    This is the link to my pail project. =) The flowers are attached to lollipops. So much fun!

  8. This is great! Super awesome simple! Very inspirational, I have some of these stashed away and am def going to give this idea a go (with my own kick to em of course) thanks for the inspiration and the new blog link to check out ; )

  10. They are so cute! On my way to Dollar Tree in just a minute to get these pails. But, so far my favorite Halloween craft is the fan fold rosette wreath. I have really enjoyed making them and they are so pretty.


  11. Whooooo! Wish I had someone who would appreciate that little treat! My favorite fall craft is cutting a circle of fall print fabric. Putting a handful of fall smelling potpouri in the middle, a bit of stuffing, Then pulling the fabric up and tying with raffia or green chenille stem.. Add some stamped leaves and twirl the green chenille stem around pencil (for vine). and you have a really cute pumpkin! Can also add a roll of green felt for the stem before you tie the top.

  12. OMG these are super adorable and these are my absolute favorite! Saw them on FB and this is the perfect gift idea for my housewarming party that I am having in collaboration with Halloween on the 29th of Oct. I was struggling with ideas for a quick/cute “thank you”/”happy Halloween” gift for my friends and BOOM there pinkcricut was with this super cute super easy gift idea!

  17. These are wonderful, for lots of reasons. The first is because they are great looking. Another is because it’s a quick and super easy craft.
