Mini Angry Birds buckets....

Target dollar bin strikes again!

Seriously, isn't that section like crack? It lures you in as soon as you walk in with the promise of a cheap high...and it delivers!

I found these little mini buckets in the dollar section for yep, you guessed it, a dollar. They are just the size for the favor buckets for the Angry Birds party and for the table decorations. Both of these are still a work in progress, but making these is the first step!

Now, for all you super artsy moms out there...you would have painted cute little faces on these bins. But let's be real. I was too lazy and impatient to go out and get paint by the time I was done for the day, so let's improvise.

Google search.....print the face on card stock.....cut it out......glue it on.....done!
The red one will be filled with M&M's and the favors will be stuck into them. ( The favors were shipped today!!!!! I am so excited. )

The black one will be made into a table decoration....still mulling some options in my head.

Mark that off the birthday list!


  1. Great idea! My son loves Angry Birds, I'm going to have to look for these and give them a try :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. So cute! I wish I had thought of this! My son had an Angry Bird Party in October. I used the same idea with cutting out the face features and put them onto mylar balloons. I think you are super crafty for doing it your way!


  3. These are great! My kids love Angry Birds! Who am I kidding? So do I! I found you through Blue Cricket Design. Thanks for sharing! :)
