Fan Sea Fruit Buckets

Moving on with our Under the Sea party posts, today I have these 'buckets'.   They are actually cheap plastic planters that I got for $1.49 each.   I cut small pieces of styrofoam and put in them and then filled the rest with brown sugar and then added the fruit skewers.
The octopus on the front was cut from Birthday Bash at 4" in the purple polka dot paper from a K and Co baby stack.   Then, I cut the solid layer at 4 1/4" just to give a layers effect.   I added google eyes to each of them and the band of solid paper in the back, border punched with the wave Fiskar's punch.   I loved how cut these turned out!
