10 ways those $1 Halloween pumpkin buckets can be used as festive decor

As long as there’s been trick-or-treating, the plastic pumpkin bucket has been around. You probably already have a couple taking up space in your holiday bins or sitting in your garage gathering dust. If not, they’ll typically run you a buck at Target or the Dollar Store (obvi), so there’s no harm in picking up a couple when you go out for a candy run.

Here are a couple ways you can get some extra mileage out of your purchase, even after Halloween is over and done.
