Valentine BUCKETS


I picked up these buckets at the Dollar Store for my preschoolers to collect their Valentine's in. 
My husband was laughing & couldn't understand WHY in the WORLD I would get a big black gardening bucket for their Valentines?:)
Well..I admit, they weren't ideal, but I figured I could work with them...
I sponge painted some RED POLKA DOTS onto them & then tied some HEART RIBBON to the handles...
I cut out their names in RED VINYL-CENTURY GOTHIC FONT & they worked out GREAT to collect their Valentine's in at their class party today!!!
I figure the kids can take them home and use them for toys & make them useful, instead of just tossing out the Lunch Bags we have decorated in the past!

What a great idea - you always see great potential in things. Love the polka dots you added. Gave them that extra touch.

Those are great ... and it's always fun to have something that can be used again.
