My son loves LEGOS! When his 7th birthday rolled around, we knew it was going to be a LEGO themed birthday party. I searched Pinterest for ideas, but decided to create something on my own. We own tons of popcorn buckets from Disney On Ice and the movie theater, so instead of eating a bucket of licorice and spray painting I when to the Dollar Tree and bought a piece of yellow poster board paper for $0.99! I had the rest of the supplies at home: popcorn bucket, black Sharpie, pencil, scissors, and masking tape.
Step 1: Measure the height of the popcorn bucket. Mark with a pencil, then cut.
Step 2: Use masking tape to tape the poster board to the bucket. (Remember, this is not intended to be permanent…it just needs to last through the party.)
Step 3: When you get to the handle, cut and fold under a small piece to allow the handle to poke through.
Step 4: Now you are ready to draw a face. (Please note that since the popcorn bucket is slightly tapered you will not get a perfect round cylinder…but close enough.)
Step 5: Once you decide on the face…have fun! You can either lightly trace with a pencil, then fill in with a Sharpie…or just go for it like I did!
I loved how well the bucket turned out…so I made a second one! We used one for the Pirate Booty and one for the ice cream gift certificates for the kids.
