Way back in November, I was shopping for Halloween clearance items at Michaels and they had large boxes marked “Grab Box $2”. I am always searching for project inspiration and who knew what was in those. So, me being me, I purchased five boxes.

The entire ride home, it was driving me crazy that I didn’t know what was is those boxes. Once I got home, I rooted through each of them and found a lot of junk, a few treasures, and oodles of inspiration.

There were eight of these Halloween popcorn buckets I just knew I could do something fun with. So, as I was searching for Easter basket ideas for my boys, I remembered those buckets and decided they would be perfect. I found this fun chevron wrapping paper at the dollar store that screamed Easter to me. I picked up a roll, went home, and started working.

First, I cut the wrapping paper to fit, allowing for the curves and tapper of the bucket.

Next, the paper was glued to the bucket with a regular old glue stick.

Then, I poked two small holes in the basket, on opposite sides from one another.

After that, I fed rope through the holes to create a handle.

Finally, I tied knots at the ends of the rope and dabbed them with a little hot glue to be sure they wouldn’t unravel.

Tada! Here it is! I love it! I am excited to make a second, that way both of my boys will have one. Don’t worry, if you can’t find a Halloween bucket to make one of these, you can easily use any old popcorn bucket or sand bucket.
