DIY Back-To-School Buckets Idea

Welcome kids back to school with a project that expresses their personality and keeps things organized, too! Our Back-To-School Buckets allow children to explore their creativity and offer a fun place to stash school supplies. Grab some buckets, foam, glue dots and other embellishments and you're ready to create.

1. Using foam, paper, chenille stems, pom-poms and glue dots, you can decorate your back-to-school bucket any way you'd like!
2. For the school spirit bucket, simply decorate the giant foam megaphone with pom-poms, glitter glue pens, a foam star cutout and self-adhesive foam letters. Add a few mini foam fingers on wooden sticks to finish it off.
3. For the Western bucket, cut about a 2” wide strip of green foam. Create a grass look by cutting the top a little. Using glue dots, adhere it to the bottom of the bucket. Cut out a fence shape from brown paper and use glue dots to adhere it to the bucket. Wrap jute around the fence to look like rope. Decorate your bucket with bandannas and sheriff badges, and then top it off with a hat cutout glued to the inside!
4. To create the whale bucket, cut out your own whale shape from blue foam and give it one big wiggle eye. Adhere a few chenille stems to the top of the whale to create a water spout. Next, secure the whale to the bucket with glue dots. Cut out wave shapes from blue paper and glue them around the bottom of the bucket. Decorate the bucket with a variety of different under water creature foam shapes.
