Funny Pumpkin Pails

These Funny Pumpkin Pails are easy to make using store-bought materials
and add an extra element of fun to your Halloween celebrations!

I've gotten really good at not making plans. I know....not something to be proud of, right?? I agree - it's not a source of great pride for me. But it IS true! I've gone from being the person with the always-full social calendar to being the person who, at best, has a couple things on the calendar each month. And most of those are NOT things I planned! I'm pretty sure I can blame it on having 3 kids....since I was finding that every time I had plans they ended up feeling stressful. lessen my stress....I just stopped doing things!

For the most part, I'm just fine with having a little more free time in my life. But. I do sometimes miss the plans! I miss feeling connected instead of out of the loop. I miss the fun of a full house on weekends. I miss running around like a crazy person with all my kids.....okay.....scratch that. You get the point. I miss it....and I don't. So I've been thinking that maybe it would be fun to have everyone over for one big Halloween party. On a Saturday. And everyone could bring their kids.....and we could all have a good time and catch up with one another! Because the reality is I'm not the only one who's gotten good at not making plans. Most people I know are in the same boat! help myself stick with the idea....I've been thinking that I should start making decorations for it! That way, when the time comes, most of the work will already be done! Not to mention the fact that I would feel too bad to NOT use them....! First up? These Funny Pumpkin Pails made with orange metal pails, jack-o-lantern beverage clings, and magnetic mustaches! (Clearly the party I have in mind is more silly than scary!) But SO FUN!! I'm getting excited already.

I guess the next step should be figuring out a date and actually inviting people....which, to be honest, will be a big step for me. Because clearly that means I'm locked in to having plans! And I'm also locked in to having a little extra stress in my life for the next few weeks. But not too much.....because I can guarantee that everything I do for it will be just as easy as these easy Funny Pumpkin Pails. Easy enough for a mom with 3 kids who's really good at not making plans. And DEFINITELY easy enough for you!

Supplies Needed:
  • Orange metal pails (I found mine in the Target $1 Spot)
  • Jack-o-lantern beverage clings (I found mine in the Target seasonal department)
  • Magnetic mustaches (I found mine in the Target stationery department)
  • Small powerful magnets (I found mine at the hardware store and used them for extra hold on the mustaches)


Stay tuned for more fun Halloween ideas....coming soon!
