How to draw a trick or treat bucket

Updated on November 2, 2012

The beginning of the Halloween art saga has just begun! Back with yet another Halloween inspired drawing tutorial for all you Halloween lovers!

Today's hub will be based around trick-or-treat buckets and how to draw them. It's just undeniable! No matter how young or old you are, people always get excited when they see a bucket of candy in front of them. I know I do. ^^;

This tutorial will walk you through the process of drawing a pumpkin bucket for trick or treating. I hope you enjoy!

Step 1

We're gonna start by drawing the opening of the bucket. Draw a medium sized oval on your sheet of paper. Make sure it doesn't cover the entire sheet and only the central portion of i (about 45%).

Step 2

Draw the outer portion of the bucket. Think of it as if it were a small, round bowl being cupped in someone's hand. It won't be completely circular but it should be pretty round in shape.

Step 3

Since our bucket is going to look like a pumpkin, we're going to draw in the lines all around the trick or treat bucket. The lines should not go completely vertical on the bucket, but have a slight curve.

Step 4

Add some dimension to the gaps at the top and bottom of your trick or treat bucket. Draw it to look somewhat like the shape of a pumpkin from top to bottom.

Step 5

This is just a little fun bit to include in your bucket. I have begun to draw triangular eye shapes in to the pumpkin shaped bucket like a jack o' lantern. I made the triangles have a bit of a 3 dimensional quality to them in that you can see parts of the bucket's interior through the eyes.

Step 6

This jack o' lantern's face is going to be a cute one. I didn't really like the idea of a creepy looking one for this tutorial. Draw the carved smile under the eyes of the jack o' lantern shaped bucket.

Step 7

Now that we have completed drawing the bucket itself, it is now time to draw the top handle.

Step 8

Again, I have added a slight 3 dimensional quality to the bucket handle. By doing this, it portrays the overall thickness of the handle.

Step 9

This is optional but it's my favorite part! Draw in a bunch of candy inside of the bucket. After this last step, that is all! If you want, you can put yourself up to the challenge of filling in the drawing with colors of your choice. Feel free to leave feedback on this tutorial! Hope this was enjoyable. :)
