Make a Glow-in-the-Dark Treat Bucket

Do you have a youngster with visions of sugary sweets dancing in their heads? The big night is scarcely a week away. Have you been toiling over a witch, pirate, super hero, or princess costume? Well don’t forget the accessories! While princesses need their wands, devils their pitchforks, a pointy hat for witches, and swords for pirates, they all have one common need—a container for their treats. And since the little hobgoblins are running around at night, how about a candy holder that glows in the dark? This ingenious project scores points for both its usefulness and safety, and just requires paint, stencils, and a bucket.

You can get mega-clever and customize the design to match your child’s costume by making your own stencil or using masking tape. Flowers for the princess or ballerina, flames for a fireman or devil, and skulls for pretty much anything spooky. Here’s the basic how-to instructions: Treat Bucket.

This project is a treat from the recently released Artful Halloween: 31 Frightfully Elegant Projects, by the scarily talented Susan Wasinger.
