Fall Clothespin Bucket List

Could this day be any more Fall-ish?
The hubs and I are cuddled up on the couch with the windows down as I type this.
Perfect start to the Fall Season!

This weather got me thinking about all the things that I wanted to do this season...
So i started writing them down.
Knowing myself, I knew if I didn't make something out of this list I would just put it down somewhere never to be seen again.

Soo..a few minutes of thinking and I came up with this.

A friend of mine does something similar for Thanksgiving, in which they write what they are thankful for each day onto a clothespin and put it on a wreath. 
This is the same type of idea.

The idea is to line your basket with your Fall Bucket List Clothespins, and place them into the bucket as you complete them.
I think it's more fun than crossing something off a list--and kids would love it!

You will need:

Clothespins {The printable is measured to fit Mainstay's Clothespins from Wal-mart}
This Printable I made
Foam Brush
A bucket of some kind {I got mine at Michaels for $4 with coupons}


Go here and print off the bucket list I made.
I recommend printing on heavy cardstock, and make sure that you print full page size.

Use a cutter or scissors to cut out each image.

You'll notice that I left 12 blank.
These are to fill in with your own ideas for your family's bucket list. 

I've been heavily hinting that I want to go to the mountains for our anniversary. 
Really hoping I can place this one in the bucket soon. :)
 {Pay no mind to the fact that I spelled anniversary wrong..whoops}

Next, modge podge the paper onto the clothespins.
Make sure to do a coat of modge podge under and on top of the paper for good adhesion.


Once they're dried, clip around your basket. My basket had a handle, so I opted to line mine here.

We've already been able to drop a few into the bucket.

Hope this inspires you to get out and enjoy this season with your family.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Love this! Enjoy your mountain trip anniversary.

  2. Really cute idea :) These would work perfect on a chicken wire frame!

  3. What a clever idea. I love that your bucket list is both practical and pretty. I definitely want to make one of these, if not for fall, then for the holiday season.

    I'll be featuring you tomorrow as one of my favorites at Home{work} Wednesday.
