Trick or Treat Decorated Tub {Crafty October}

Last week I made some Trick or Treat Candy Tubes for when the kids come knocking on Halloween…well, the treats need somewhere to be stored, so I decorated a plastic tub and present to you my Trick or Treat Decorated Tub!

I started out with a plastic tub that I’ve had hanging around in the house for a while, and thought it would be an ideal storage place for the candy when the trick or treaters call!

So I gathered some crafty supplies from my stash and got to work…I printed off the words ‘trick or treat’ and then used them as a template to cut the letters out from some black vinyl, (I so wish I had a Silhouette machine, but I don’t have the funds at the moment to buy one of those!) which I then stuck onto the front of the tub.

I took my scissors to some curling ribbon and produced a mass of curls to tie to the handles, along with some black organza, which got tied up into a bow.

I attached some Halloween stickers to wire and coiled the wire to give different heights. I wrapped the wire around the handles of the tub. Then in with the candy tubes and all done!

It was a nice quick and easy project to do and I think it turned out fab! I am sure the trick or treaters are going to like picking out their sweets from my decorated tub next Wednesday evening!
