- Scissors – I found that small sharp scissor worked best for cutting this sticky tape.
Making the Treat Pails
The kids and I worked together on these pails. We made a “mummy” by basically wrapping a plastic pumpkin in strips of glow Duck Tape®. We made the striped pumpkin by choosing fun Halloween patterns to stripe down the sides and then applying a glowing face on top. For my toddler I cut a bunch of little strips and let her apply them as she liked – I think it came out looking a little like a pirate.
- Cutting the tape can be difficult – basic shapes like triangles and squares are easiest.
- To get the Jack-o-lantern shape for the mouth we gently stuck the Glow Duck Tape® in place and traced the mouth with a pencil. We cut out the shape and stuck it in place after we had already stuck down the decorative strips.
- My toddler enjoyed decorating her own bucket – I ripped off small strips for her and stuck them on the edge of the table so she could grab them herself. Beware of the finish if you do this – it was OK on our table, but would certainly ruin some. We also used the left over glowing bits to stick on her treat bucket.
- We covered the handles by placing tape over the tops and folding under the sides so no sticky spots remained.
