Step 1 – Starting with the ears. Using the bottom of the pail as a template, draw a circle with the chalk on the black felt. You will need 4 ears for each pail.
Step 2 – Cut each circle.
Step 3 – Apply hot glue to half of one circle and place another circle on top. Repeat with the remaining two circles.
Step 4 – To secure the pail handle in the upright position, apply a dab of hot glue over the handle holes and place the handle upright.
Step 5 – Open the “ear” and apply hot glue to the bottom half of the ear. Attach it to the pail by placing the handle between the two pieces of felt.
Step 6 – Repeat for the second ear.
Step 7 – Using a small rectangle piece of red felt, make a bow. Simply, place glue in the center of the rectangle and fold in half. Wrap a small piece of felt over the center and glue it to the pail handle between the ears. Add a tiny piece of felt on the back to give the back of the pail a finished look. (see video for demonstration)
Step 8 – Using an Acrylic Paint Marker, draw random dots on the pail and let dry.
Now fill the pail with your favorite wrapped candy or snacks and you’re all set!
Wasn’t that easy?
I hope you give this fun little project a try and let me know what you think!
