So my kids are totally obsessed with Pokemon Go. I mean . . . I kind of am too so I can’t really blame them. So when I was thinking about Halloween and how the true crafty Lisa comes out around mid September, I started thinking about how *awesome* it would be to make a Poké Ball Treat Bucket! And you guys, it’s super easy. Even the novice crafter (aka me) can pull this bad boy off.

There are 3.2 billion photos for this post so let’s jump in, eh?

(Heads up! This is a multi-day project, friends, so make sure you account for that.  And make sure you read ALL the instructions before starting.)

Let’s first talk about our supplies. You are going to need:

Add a ring of painter’s tape to the middle of your bucket all the way around.  Make sure it is firmly pressed against the plastic, even in the grooves of the pumpkin. This tape will stay on the bucket throughout the next steps of the project until the end.  You will add more tape, but you won’t take this layer off until you are completely done painting.

Cut the handles off your plastic bag.

Tape the plastic bag around your pumpkin using another ring of painter’s tape. You want to make sure that the top is completely sealed off.

Spray paint the bottom white and make sure it dries completely before moving on.

Now cover up the bottom of the bucket with the plastic bag. Remember, you aren’t taking off that middle layer of tape. That stays on there from start to finish. You are adding more painter’s tape to hold the bag in place.

Spray paint the top red.  You can hold it by the plastic bag and spray upside down, or you can tape a plastic bag to the inside of the bucket and then you won’t get paint in there.  Or you can just have at it.

Remove the plastic bag once the red paint is completely dry.

Remove the blue painter’s tape.  Then cut a big circle of black and then a small circle of white and put them on the side of the pumpkin opposite the face!

    That is an awesome craft! At the Target by our house, they even painted one of their big red balls out in front like a Pokeball! Did your Target do this?
