5 Little Monsters: Pick Your Own Pumpkin Bucket

Pick Your Own Pumpkin Bucket

-This post may contain affiliate links-


This summer my mom picked up a couple of these square galvanized buckets for me on clearance thinking they would work well for a project. They are actually ice buckets/beverage dispenser stands, but really any similar sized pocket would work for this project, even a wooden box. Anyway, when she gave them to me I immediately knew what I wanted to do with one of them and I have been waiting for the right season to make it. 


I have collected quite a few little handmade pumpkins over the years and I thought it would be fun to make a little bucket to display them in. With a "pick your own pumpkin at the pumpkin patch" kind of design on it. 


If you don't want to make a bucket to hold pumpkins, this design would also work great on a fall sign. Just put the vinyl on a wood plaque instead of a bucket.

How to Make a Pick Your Own Pumpkin Bucket


You will need:


  • Cricut machine (I used my Cricut Joy for this project)
  • adhesive vinyl in black and orange (I used Permanent Smart Vinyl)
  • transfer tape
  • a galvanized bucket or other surface to put the design on

Instructions:



Resize the design as needed to fit your surface. 

Cut the design out of vinyl.

Weed the design and use transfer tape to transfer the image onto your surface.
