Halloween Party Favor Buckets!

It's a --*gasp*-- NON-SEWING post!!

I love party favors! Today I want to show you some cute, CHEAP Halloween party favor buckets:

They are so much fun to make -- and FAST.


Start with this three-pack of wedding favor buckets from the dollar store.


Bust out your "poor man's vinyl" -- electrical tape!! -- and stack up a few layers. (I've cut as many as four layers at a time.)

I got two good-sized rolls of the tape at the dollar store for a buck!!!


Cut out a ghosty eye shape...


...peel the layers apart...


...and stick them in place! Layer your tape to cut the mouths the same way, and
>>BAM!<< Ghosty buckets!!


I may or may not have gotten carried away with my husband's colored electrical tape, too...... :o)

And here's a BONUS idea:
Edible jack-o-lanterns made from oranges!!

Now, what else can I go stick some electrical tape on............?
