It's a Boy Welcome buckets

This was a quick and easy project I did for my MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) that I mentor at my church.  Last week was "Spa week" when the ladies get manicures, hair styles, massages, and other fun pampering. We also made our own jar of scrub which was a lot of fun.  


I like to take my table little goodies each time we meet so I decided to make a spa bucket.  However I also found out that week  I was going to be blessed with my first grandson so I thought it would be fun to combine the spa day with an announcement that I am having my first grandson.  
I got these cute little buckets in the $1 section at Target ( they have blue and white ribbon handles), I got bath nets (2 for $1)  and It's a boy mints at the Dollar Tree, and the manicure set from Michaels for only 60 cents each.  I also added a blue pencil and made Its a boy tags from my Imagine cart Nursery Rhymes  and cut Baby cupcake wrappers to fit along the edge of the buckets using Cupcake Wrappers and some blue paper from my stash.  
I made 9 of these for around $25.  

Here you can see the buckets empty and full.
