Early in the week, I posted about my adventures with my new BFF~ chalkboard paint. I had to share this cute idea as well. I see lots of uses for these galvanized buckets.
Candy Corn is just the beginning. Suggestions y'all?
I am linking up with Leigh's Thrifty Thursday in Bloggeritaville.

I can see them spelling out JOY at Christmas...I love anything numbered so I could see writing 1, 2, 3 on them. Lots of possibilities.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Cute! I like the idea of "JOY" for Christmas. If you add more buckets you can spell out so many things....LOVE, SPRING, etc

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

Very cute idea!

Have a great day!

Loove these buckets! Jane's idea of JOY is fabulous, then fill all with candy canes, pine cones, baubles, etc. and alternate with candles!

jennifer said...

Oh wow Sandi! You could do just ANYTHING with those buckes! JOY at Christmas... USA at the 4th of July... those are really cute!

Carol @ TheWritersPorch said...

Sandi, that is a great idea! :)

nanny said...

So creative, I love them!
My hubby used chalkboard paint to turn an old calendar holder into a menu board. I love it.

My creativeness flew out the door when I saw all the candy corn--it runs about $5.00 for 200 grams here in Australia! Great idea.

Barb~ I know those teachers love you!
Natashya~ that sounds too cute... pictures???
Maya~ not only that but you are stuttering :-) I have noticed that the amount of candy corn dwindles a tad every day.
Kammy~ thanks for stopping by! Want some candy corn?

Barbara said...

Great idea, I have lots of storage boxes in my frou frou house and the titles change a lot and I have to mark thru them, this way, I could just erase and put new title on them.

Very cute! Great idea, and I'm sure there will be more to come!
