I put this together for Halloween 2009 and didn't think much of it until other parents offered to buy it off me.

This is my first instructable so bear with me.

This is a glowing Halloween trick or treat candy bucket.  I did this because some of the areas we were trick-or-treating were not well-lit and I was worried the kids would not be seen in the dark.  A flashlight would have also worked but that's another thing to carry around.  The lights in the bucket also helped the kids find their favorite candy in the dark.  

The buckets were $1 each from a Dollar Tree store.

The LEDs are battery operated white LED Christmas lights from Big Lots for $5

Step 1:

Put the LEDs in the bucket and hot glue the lights around the inside of the bucket and the battery compartment to the bottom.
this is very nice you can also put velcro tabs 3 around the top and i on the pack itself and line fabric tht can be taken out to replace batteries when neede,this way the lights do not interfare with the candy...
Cool re-purposing technique.
Great idea! and its really easy... [:
