  • 1 Hiland Dairy gallon ice cream pail
  • Green spray paint
  • Googly eyes
  • Cheesecloth
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paint sponge


  • Clean the pail with warm, soapy water. Towel dry completely.
  • Gently remove the handle and lid from the ice cream pail and set aside. In a wellventilated area, spray paint the outside of the pail. Let dry completely
  • Cut the cheesecloth in long strips, approximately 1 to 2 inches wide.
  • Secure one end of the strip with glue and continue to wrap it around the bucket making sure to leave open spaces. Brush a little glue along the path as you wrap the cheesecloth to completely adhere it to the bucket.
  • Glue the googly eyes in the open spots. Reattach the handle and let the glue dry completely.

Diva’s Tip

Light the way! Adhere the cheesecloth strips with glow-in-the-dark glue to add some nighttime luminosity.
