Halloween Treat Bucket

          This miniature paint bucket was decorated for Halloween for my college daughter.  I filled it with a pair of dollar store Halloween socks, a small shaker globe and candy.  Can't have my baby miss Halloween.  It is one of our favorite holidays.  I even remember my mom making a red flannel nightgown and purchasing a pair of horns for me to be a little devil when I was only 3.  This is the first year we are not having a party.  I just couldn't find the time or really the inclination this year with mom passing.  Every year we would have a private contest to see who would get the most trick or treaters.

      Back to the bucket, this was way fun to decorate.  I used three different border punches and decorative paper and sticky rhinestones and a dollar store glitter spider (best spider ever!)  Apparently this was the year for dots too.  I added doodle dots to lots of my Halloween projects as you can see around all the borders.  Of course, I did make a card to go with but that's another day's post.
