5 Fun DIY Halloween Buckets For Trick-or-Treating

Halloween is less than a week away! Is your family ready? Costumes… décor… candy… so much to think about! But don’t forget the iconic Halloween bucket!

When I was a kid, we liked to use pillow cases, but really, how uninspired is that? (Besides, they probably hold WAY more candy than we’d like our kiddos to bring home, right? So, in honour of getting crafty and having fun before the big day — here are some fun DIY Halloween buckets that your kids will be happy to fill!

The creative folks over at Room To Inspire came up with this neat peat pot bucket! (If you’re going to use this for a night of treat-collecting, opt for a stronger handle — a thick braided rope might go well with this design!)


Now, these last little baskets via Kiki Creates are actually tiny wee things, great for indoor decor, but not so great for trick-or-treating. Either way — love that sparkle!
