The Executive Producer is Paul Rudish.To get into the spirit of the Halloween season, my daughter and I decided to make a couple of Mickey-inspired trick-or-treat buckets. I love simple DIYs, especially when they involve Mickey Mouse! I wanted to share ours with you because they were so simple to make and can be easily recreated.Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Mickey-inspired Trick-or-Treat Buckets:
- Bucket or pail, 1 per person
- White foam pieces
- 1/2′ wide ribbon, Halloween colors
- Trim of your choie
- Tulle, Halloween colors
- A black permanent marker
- Glue gun and refills
- Grab an inspirational image of Mickey’s glove from the Internet.
- Use pencil to draw onto the white foam. Make one for each bucket or pail.
- Cut out shape carefully.
- Use the black permanent marker to draw accents and outline the glove.
- Stick Mickey’s glove onto the front of the bucket using the hot glue gun.
- Cute a few pieces of tool and ribbon and tie onto each side of the bucket, where the handles are and trim edges.
- Finally, glue a fun trim around the rim of the bucket
How cute did our buckets turn out? My daughter did the majority of the work. She’s my resident artist and I’m really excited to use them when we attend Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Resort. Meanwhile, I’m using them in my classroom to hold rewards for my students. Boy, do they pay attention when I pick one of the buckets up!
