It's no secret the Libster has a thing for bats.
But regardless, she LOVES them.
Combine that with the fact that I had a hankerin' to get her a new Halloween bucket,
but I wasn't so thrilled with paying the $30 for the type of boutique-ish basket I wanted.
So, I decided to improvise.
I gathered some things I had around the house:
(That's right; this project was TOTALLY FREE for me.)
*an old paint bucket, which once contained the paint belonging to my master bedroom. It's the perfect size to hold all her goodies. It also happened to already be black under the wrapper, but silver or clear would easily work too. And there's always spray paint.....
*some felt. I seem to be on quite the felt kick lately.
*some ribbon that I crinkled using the same technique I used for my trick or treat bucket.
*two black buttons
*my hot glue gun and a couple of glue sticks.
I snipped a little here, cut a little there, and lookie what I came up with:
I think I might have drooled a little when I saw the results.
I just think it's so very LIBBY.
There's no limit to what a girl can do given a glue gun and a daughter who loves all things batty.
