Buckets for our Dutch trick-or-treat: Sint Maarten

November 11th is a great day for being a kid in the Netherlands (at least living North of the rivers). It's time to celebrate Sint Maarten by walking door to door with a homemade lantern, singing songs and receiving candy. Trick-or-treat, but different.
At Heidi & Finn I spotted a free pattern for trick-or-treat buckets. Perfect! No more fuss with a backpack to open and close or too large plastic bags dragging over the pavement.
At Ikea the Christmas collection is in full display and this year I just couldn't resist the tree trunk fabric (I have my eye on their fir tree fabric for 2 years now, chances are high we'll be having a woven Christmas tree this year). So those two came together in a couple of medium sized buckets, perfect for collecting candy and even better, to store toys!

Our lantern needs a couple more layers of paint, but you get the idea.
