Scare up some fun with these easy trick-or-treat buckets
Dr. Frankenstein was a real Halloween do-it-yourselfer when you think about it. A bit of sewing, a smidge of wiring know-how, a few concoctions from his grade-school chemistry set, and voilà, he made an instant friend.
But if you’re like us—a little iffy on the correct voltage you need to create your own real-life monster pal—how about trying out this friendly little Frankenstein’s monster pail for Halloween? This guy is so cute you’ll fight over whether he goes out with the kids to collect candy or stays home to give it out. On second thought, you might need to make lots of these…

How to make it
2. Start making faces (we won’t judge) with the hardware and household items. Remember, the less symmetrical the items, the more ragtag he’ll look—so have fun. Secure the items to the pail using the E-6000 or epoxy glue. You can scratch off a little of the paint behind each feature so the glue holds better.
While you’re at the hardware or craft store, grab a package of small magnets. Glue the magnets to the back of the hardware (use the E-6000 or epoxy glue to guarantee a good hold). Then you and your kids can switch out his features over and over again. Just keep in mind if he goes out trick-or-treating, he might “lose face” before the night is out.Mwah-ha-ha-ha.
