Halloween Basket

I mentioned before that we took Hudson trick-or-treating last year, but just stopped by a few friends houses since he was only 6 months old...and couldn't even eat real food yet.  Well, this year he'll only be 18 months old and still can't eat much candy, so instead I thought a little gift bucket would be cute. 

I've been seeing tons of adorable, bright and colorful monster stickers at all the craft stores, so I picked some up.  I used a metal bucket that I had on hand.  I actually bought ten buckets in the dollar section at Target 3 years ago for our wedding and have been using them for all kinds of things around here.  They've come in very handy! 

Anyway, I decorated the bucket with the stickers and then added his name with scrapbook stickers to personalize it.  Once the bucket was finished, I filled it with a little tissue paper and some fun monster bath toys, which can be found at most Target stores.  They are made by Alex Toys. 

I think it turned out really cute and know Hudson will just love it!  This would be a great gift for friends or family members who have kids under 2!   You an find similar buckets at Home Depot and fill them with all kinds of fun things!

This is really perfect because little man is dressing up as a monster this year!
