mini {boo} pails

{BOO} you scared? HA!!! here are my cute little MINI {BOO} pails!

THIS CRAFT COST ME ONE DOL-LAR! {$1~ dollar}! the mini pails came together at the Dollar Tree in a set of three. The ribbon, sticker, and googly eyes I ALL HAD AT HOME. Now I originally planned on black vinyl or black stickers for the {BOO} however, I only had a B in the stickers and NO O’S plus I was all out of black vinyl. I improvised with the Googly Eyes! I have more PAILS AND WILL SHOW YOU MY {HALLOWEEN} ones when I get them done!

YOU WILL~ tie ribbon in halloween colors around the pail handle’s, place stickers, or vinyl on the pails, and or hot glue Googly eyes! EASY PEASY!

tied polka dot ribbon close shot! HOW CUTE TO PUT the snack size halloween candy in the pails and give these as a gift to your neighbor, friend, teacher, etc.


thanks for {googling} at this craft!

    If anyone is wondering where to get some pails (if you can’t find any at the dollar store), I saw some tonight at Target. They were probably a little bit bigger than those you have shown, but they were only $1 a piece. I almost bought some, but I thought to myself “Lauren, you don’t need these – you don’t even have a project in mind!” But now, after seeing your project, I’m wishing I picked up 3!
