So, I originally made a bucket like this for my nephew's Easter gift, but I bought extra buckets (and continue to pick them up when I am out and about) because they make darling containers for any kind of gifts. You can make them for little people or big- to stuff with toys, candies, gift cards, baby goodies, or even Easter Eggs around that time of year. Here's the girlie one that I made- soon to be stuffed with girlie items- unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the boy one before I gave it away- but it will give you an idea and jump start your creativity. I found the idea on www.kiddley.com. It's easy as pie- cut out old book illustrations, wrapping paper, or pictures and use Mod Podge to stick it to the tin. Then add another layer of Mod Podge over the top to make a final seal, add your trim (ribbons, buttons, pom poms, ric rac, etc.) with a hot glue gun and you are done!

What a "hoot" these were to make! They are actually the first set of canvases I made without a specific home- they are for sale, and might even make their way into a boutique! Let me know if you are interested in them, they are absolutely adorable!
