Paint Bucket Jack-O-Lanterns
Do you ever feel like you're a character in Rocky Horror Picture Show? I feel like I'm doing the Time Warp. I've been making fall crafts... but I have to start on Christmas... and there is a special project I'm working on for Spring! Uh, what day is it?
Okay, focus, Kimara... fall... Halloween... Christmas stockings... no, no, no. HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN. Okay, I'm back. Halloween. So... here is my completed Paint Bucket Jack-O-Lantern. If you were over at Wee Folk Activities last week, hmmm... was it just last week? Anyway... if you were over there, you would have seen the Jack-O-Lanterns Bug, Fairy and Pixie made for Trick-or-Treating. I started mine last week... at least I got it primed and painted, but I finished it up today. I got the idea for these last spring when I turned some paint buckets into planters for my front steps.
Although the Jack-O-Lanterns themselves do not take a lot of time... the leaves aren't even embroidered, can you believe I ACTUALLY let felt go unembroidered?... but you do need to allow for plenty of drying time. So, if you would like to make your own Paint Bucket Jack-O-Lanterns for trick-or-treating or household decorations, get started soon. I plan to use mine as a decoration Pre-Halloween, then use it as my candy bucket for handing out treats. The directions for the Paint Bucket Jack-O-Lanterns can be found HERE or with our FREE Patterns. Enjoy!
