Valentines Hooked on You Pail

Hooked on You Pail. LOVE this Valentines gift idea on { } #valentines

I saw this idea at Target and couldn’t resist making my own Valentine’s Hooked on You Pail and Labels.

They are so fun and easy – and who doesn’t like Gummy Worms?

Here’s what you’ll need….


– Gummy Worms

– Labels

– Pail (found at all craft stores or also in the dollar section at Target)

– Glue


1. Fill your pail with gummy worms. Set aside.

2. Download prints by clicking on the image (it will take you to a PDF with Pink, Red, Green and Blue Prints) above and then right-clicking and saving. Cut out labels. Download them using this document above.

They are available in 4 colors – Red, Pink, Blue & Green.

3. The labels will not fit all the way around the pail. I did this on purpose so people wouldn’t have to get it printed at an office store to print onto legal and all that jazz. You can either glue it to the sides or you can do a corset lace up like I did on these Scrapbook Pails.

To learn how to do that, please go HERE.

    Cute! Where can I buy these pails? I looked at Hobby Lobby.

      I’ve seen them at Michael’s and Joann’s for sure and just assumed Hobby Lobby would have them too. Do you have those stores close by? If so, I would definitely check there. :)

    So sad! Couldn’t find the pails at my Michael’s, Target, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn’s. :(:(:( I know I’ve seen them before, but I guess they aren’t stocking them here now…guess I’ll have to improvise!

    • 28

      Oh, darn!!! I just saw them at my Michael’s. Saw them in the Target $1 section too. Hmmm… What if you used a plastic jar?

    • 29

      I too couldn’t find them at Target or Hobby Lobby or the dollar store but I did get enough of them at Michael’s. Hope you find something just as cute that will work. Thanks for the idea, my teenage boys are making them for their Valentines!

    This “Hooked on You” pail is adorable. My cousin’s husband loves to fish, so I’m emailing a link to her.
    I love using these pails for all sorts of projects. If you have a chance, I would love for you to visit to see what I’ve created using these plastic pails. This link will get you right there:

    Now following you!

    Such a cute idea! Question: What font did you use for the first picture? The one that uses hearts for the ‘o’? It’s so cute, I love it!

    Hey I was wondering if this would be a good valentines gift to give an adult who loves gummy worms? I love the idea I think its very cute!
    Thank you!

    You recognize therefore considerably with regards to this matter, made me in my view imagine it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women are not interested except it’s one thing to do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs great. All the time deal with it up!

  20. 43

    Do you know the size of your buckets? I looked everywhere for them today and I am having to order them from Amazon and I am unsure what size to get. Also, it says blue and green labels are available but only pink and red are showing up on my end. Is there somewhere I could get the blue and green for my little boys?! :) Thanks – LOVE this idea!

    • 44

      If you click on the top image, it will take you to a PDF that has the green and blue. And off the top of my head, the pails are about 6 inches tall and 5 inches wide. :)

  22. 47

    how did you find the idea????????????

    Allison DeMarco :

    Thank You! I love this idea! My boyfriend loves fishing, so I hope he finds this funny! I couldn’t find the adorable pail you had, but mine will do. Thanks again!!

  24. 51

    I am definitely going to buy the supplies tonight! My boyfriend loves to fish so he would appreciate this gesture :) DId you decoupage the label to the pail?

  25. 52

    I found mine at Hobby Lobby however I had to get the small pail since they were out of the big one like yours. I hope the large labels work. Could you post smaller ones for the little pails? Thanks and such a cute idea for a guy valentine.

    I can’t get the link to work for the corset lacing technique, Is it just me or is there a problem? Cute idea!

      That particular post was deleted when I transferred to another blog service. To do it just punch 3 holes on each side of the paper, add tacks to each hole and then lace it up with tulle or ribbon. :)
