Party Tub

For party fun on Halloween night, stencil a face on a painted tub and use the container for cold beverages.

What You Need:

Keep beverages cool in this pumpkin look-a-like.
  • Pencil

  • Orange enamel spray paint
  • 20-inch-diameter galvanized metal tub
  • Adhesive tape
  • Acrylic paint (black)
