I like to do projects with things I already have, or by re-purposing things.  For this I decided to re-use one of the many ice cream buckets that I have been saving.
I started by spray painting the bucket.  I used a flat black Krylon.

Here is the new beginning.  I did not spray the handle, I just took it off.

I started by dressing up the black with a bright orange pumpkin.  I just free handed the pumpkin and then continued adding layers of paint.

I decided that this would be used for my daughter, so every girl needs a little "bling" right?  I mean, candy AND bling?? Yes, please!  So I decided to use glitter and I made some bling circles all over. 

After the bucket, paint, and glitter had dried I added the handle, and tied some ribbon on either side.  Here is the final outcome.

I love the "bling" and the ribbons on either side!  It's much more fun than the normal plastic pumpkin bucket.  Don't ya think?

The last picture!  I can't wait to see how many times we will get to fill it up this year.  :)

I hope you all like my "Candy Bucket Cutie"!
