Gifts from the Kitchen

Treat Buckets Supplies

  • Buckets – we found these Metal Bucket Pails with Chalkboard at Walmart, in the floral department for less than $2 each
  • Ribbon – we used velvet ribbon and blue baker’s twine


  • Man Bucket – small screwdrivers and a tape measure
  • Woman Bucket – silver monogram ornament
Pretzel Snack

For the Man Bucket, I simply wrapped the baker’s twine around the bucket several times then slipped the screwdrivers under the twine to hold them. Then for the tape measure, I tied it on with a small piece of twine.

For the Woman’s Bucket, I used glue to attach the ribbon around the bucket and added the monogram with glue also.
