A Treat For My Sweet.....


Just added this... it has nothing to do with this post but I wanted yall to see what I painted last night...

I listed a few in the etsy... Painting Madison's bucket made me see how much I have missed painting...

It's now October so I guess its time for tricks and treats...I made a cute bucket for Madison to hold all of her sweet's... You can find these all over. I paid a dollar. I painted Madsion's on a bumpy bucket but from now on I will only get the smooth ones ...just like the one Im showing you here. This one came from Big Lot's and it was 1.50

I use this kind of paint...

And I just started painting....candy corn of course!

What bucket would be complete without a little candy. Oh my love....

I painted her name but you could do about anything... Boo...Trick or Treat... endless!

You know I had to add some ribbons

I loved doing this project so much...

I think I will make one for each child in her class..

If I have time I would love to make one for each of her teachers...

Maybe one for her dance teacher too!

Guess I better get busy painting Buckets

You know this would be cute too with your last name on it

Just sitting out with the rest of your decorations!

  3. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    I am in awe of ladies who can paint free hand without a stencil and you certainly have that talent in spades, look how stinkin' cute your sweet bucket is!?! I'm totally envious of your skills with a paint brush... I still haven't gotten any of my fall decorations down, I'm so far behind....
    Have a wonderful day sweetie!

  12. You are so talented! I have one of those ugly plastic cauldrons I've used in the girl's classrooms and then I chuck it in storage because it's blecky. Wow! What a transformation you made! I'm going to have to try my hand at making mine adorable!

  39. That's really cute....I might have to do one for Abby...

    Not many people like candy corn...It's my favorite...nothin' says Halloween like Candy Corn. It taste great with Apples too...they should make some kind of Candy Corn Apple...maybe they do???
    My kids still watch Noggin and I can't wait for them to start singing the "I don't like Candy Corn" song...do you remember that?

  40. Susie, I meant to mention earlier how much I like the cauldron bucket. I actually picked up one at a thrift store the other day and put it back because I couldn't think of anything cute to do with it. And no, I won't be selling at Canton, I'll be shopping. We (mom and I) always have a great time. I hope to see you there though.

  41. Oh wow! Those little plaques are so cute. Love them! And your daughter's bucket is adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  42. What a great idea! I definitely think I will be copying this one! They could even be painted to match their costume for the year! Love it!

    Oh no, are those crown plaques I see in your sidebar? Are you trying to make me go broke or something?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love those, I should really do that for my son's preschool classmates, that would be fun :)

    I mentioned you on my blog today :)

  61. Hi Susie!

    Ok, I got my buckets from Big Lots...and now I need paint and ribbons...but what is that fancy green 'stuff' inside of the bucket?

    I am going to be busy, I am not very artsy and I have at least 12 of these to make, but I bought 15 just in case I want to make a couple for the teachers and then maybe one for our last name, cute idea!!!

    Thanks!
