non-traditional stockings

Remember the 'school spirit' bucket I made a while back?  
My mom had hers displayed and drummed up some business for me :)  
I had a request to make 'stockings'.  
The idea is to use the buckets in place of stockings.  
Let me say..I love traditional stockings (the bigger the better) 
but I also tend to lean towards more 'unique' ways to do things.
I was given an interest of each of the guys.  It was up to me to do the rest.  
Here is what I came up with.  
I started with black buckets from $ Tree.  
I chose black because I figured they were more 'guy-like'. 
 Got out my Cricut and cut some vinyl.  

For the 'fisher' I chose a simple saying, added a lure and snowflake ornament.

For the 'reader'..the same idea.  I added a book light.

For the FSU fan...(my fave)

The idea of this is simple (which I love)...find a bucket and personalize it!  
These were so much fun to make!!  I hope the guys love them!!

tomorrow..a few cute cute ideas for last minute gifts
(none are mine..but I'm totally borrowing them)

These are too cute! A friend from church is going to hear which college her daughter will attend (UGA or GA Southern) from her daughter on Christmas and I think the FSU type bucket with some little odds and ends would be a cute gift when she finally reveals it! lol
