This year, I decided rather than using the pumpkin shaped buckets you see everywhere, we would decorate our very own All Saints' Day candy buckets! I mean, if you can make it Catholic, why not? ;-) You could use any bucket, bag, or container, but we used sand pails because we had them on hand.
Next, you'll need to get some saint stickers, or print some images from the internet. I printed out these adorable saint images from Happy Saints!
These are some of the Happy Saints I cut out with scalloped scissors
to use as cupcake toppers for Lydia's CCD class this Sunday.
Once you have all of your images where you want them, take the Mod Podge and paint over the entire outside of the bucket. Yes, even Mod Podge right over your words.
For this one, I used Marian stickers that I got at the Dollar Tree. Even though they stuck by themselves, I still Mod Podged over the top to hold them on better and give the bucket a finished look. Plus, the Mod Podge helps keep the fabric paint on there, too.
Here's some more pictures of the final product:
Have fun celebrating All Saints' Day, everyone!
