Need a fun way to display your candy for Trick or Treaters?  Hosting a Costume Party this year?  I have the perfect Halloween Treat Bucket Idea for you today and everything came from the Dollar Store!

These would be adorable on your party tables!  Instead of candy you could fill with ice and serve your beverages this way!  How fun would that be?  We don’t stay in our own neighborhood for trick or treating so I always leave a few bowls of candy and a cute sign outside our door for the neighbor kids!  I thought it would be cute to spook it up a bit this year and not just put out a giant bowl!

Supplies Needed for Halloween Treat Bucket:

  • Orange or Black Bucket
  • Plastic Skeleton Décor

That’s it!  I told you it was easy!  I also picked up BOTH items at my local Dollar Tree.  They even have the skeletons that glow in the dark!

I unwrapped my skeleton and removed the legs at the hip joints.  I placed the torso and arms in the bucket and bent the arms to hang over.  I placed the legs in the bucket and bent those over as well.  Removing the legs just made the skeleton sit better in the bin and the limbs hang better over the bucket edges.
