It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Halloween. I love to cover my house in pumpkins, skulls and all other things spooky. The fall tends to reignite my desire to craft, so naturally I make a few new things for Halloween each year.
This weekend I decorated buckets for my sons for Halloween. Over the years, we've most used bags, but I love the look and durability of a bucket.
Jam Paper contacted me recently about partnering with them on a fall-themed craft, I knew just what I wanted to make. Fortunately, they sell reasonably priced and beautiful colored buckets (along with a huge variety of paper supplies, of course) which are perfect not just for trick or treating, but for so many other things.
large colored buckets, one green, one black, as well as a few packages of colored gift label stickers. I also chose a sheet of letter stickers to personalize the buckets with my sons' names.
grosgrain ribbon for extra decoration too.
This was an easy craft to make, especially that you're essentially just creating a collage with the colored stickers. I started on the Frankenstein bucket and made some jagged purple hair for my monster using the purple Jam Gift Label Stickers.
Continue making Frankenstein's face in the same manner, cutting some zigzag black pieces for the eyebrows and mouth, maybe orange and black for the eyes.
You can find more craft ideas on Jam Paper's blog, as well as on their Facebook and Pinterest pages.
