How to decorate treat bucket or serving bowl for Halloween.

  1. First make sure the plastic tub (bucket or large bowl) is clean, dry and free from lint. I use rubbing alcohol and a cloth or paper towels to wipe it clean.
  2. Measure your containers space where you will be placing the saying/words in vinyl- height and width. This is for the placement of the word, not overall size of the container.
  3. Make the vinyl stickers in Cricut Design Space (it’s free to use) or use peel and stick stickers to add Halloween sayings, quotes, , or words to the bucket (or bowl). (video for how to cut and apply Cricut vinyl)
  4. If you are using the Cricut to design your vinyl stickers be sure to group your words and click weld them! Do this prior to cutting them.
  5. Adhere stickers (that you made and cut with a Cricut or purchased) to the clean surface of the tub, bucket or bowl.
  6. Decorate the rim of the bucket with the Halloween garland. Use a hot glue gun to secure the garland at various spots. Overlap slightly at the end, trim with wire cutters or scissors. (Don’t use sewing scissors!)
  7. Next, add the Halloween pick by inserting and hot gluing to foam square or foam rectangle (or improvise by making a stand with cardboard) and placing at the bottom inside of the bucket).
  8. Don’t forget to add the bags of Monster Pop popcorn to the bucket. (Add additional packaged treats or packaged candies as desired.)
  9. Now your popcorn bags and treats are ready for your Halloween party tables, serving or grabbing to snack on. Or handing out as popcorn treats.
