Do you have one of those plastic, pumpkin-shaped candy buckets?  (I think just about everyone does!)  Now that Halloween has come and gone, what are you going to do with it?  Peaches from Aunt Peaches turned hers into a fancy pedestal bowl!  It’s even made with recycled materials, using an empty plastic tub for a base (think sour cream or margarine) and decoupaging the exterior with paper scraps left over from other projects.  The result is quirky, stylish, uber-cheap, and definitely not Halloween-y!  [how to recycle a pumpkin bucket into a pedestal bowl]
