Although I try not to let it happen, sometimes I end up with out-of-scale props. This tiny bucket is a perfect example. It's big enough for little Poka Tia...but much too small for anyone else.
I'm not sure where the out-of-scale bucket came from, but it's been rattling around the bottom of my miscellaneous prop box for a long time. I unearthed it while gathering props for Thursday's post and thought, "I will never use that. I really ought to get rid of it."
A couple hours later, inspiration struck as I walked down the seasonal aisle at the grocery store.
With just a little bit of work, the out-of-scale bucket was transformed into a perfect 1:9 scale Halloween treat pail.
I'm glad I didn't get rid of it.
Sometimes you buy the right props. Other times you make the props you buy right. Both ways work.
