Wicked Cool Treat Bucket

In this month's issue of Scrapbooks Ect. there was the cutest little paint can decorated for Halloween featured on the cover.  I really wanted to give this treat bucket a try, but I live about ninety miles from the nearest craft store.  So I can't just go out and buy a paint can.  I had to improvise using a cream of mushroom can instead.  lol  I really think it turned out cute.  I covered the outside of the can in a piece of Basic Black Patterned DSP and the inside with a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  I then glued the can on to a piece of chipboard covered with Basic Black Cardstock as well.  I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes out for the handles and Antique Brad.  The Silver Tinsel used for the handle and around the can is from last year's Holiday Mini.  I decided that the Wicked Cool Stamp Set would be perfect for this project.  I colored my image using Stampin' Write Markers and then added a couple of Basic Rhinestones.  Actually, I think I got carried away with the rhinestones.  They're everywhere!!  lol  I even added some to the plastic spider ring. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday.  Take care.

Well if this isn't the cutest thing ever. Also, you know-a girl can never have too much bling!

This is very cute! Great job and way to improvise, using the soup can. I love how you decorated it - especially the bling :)

What a great way to recycle and use what is on hand! This is the coolest Halloween container I have seen yet!
