Pottery Barn Kids Inspired Buckets

I am really trying to get my house organized lately, especially my little boys' room. They have so much stuff and it seems to be everywhere! When I saw these buckets in the pbk catalog I knew that I could make some buckets that were not only a lot less expensive than these, but also more personalized.

I bought three buckets at my favorite store...Target.
I then borrowed my mom's vinyl cutter and cut out some red and silver vinyl letters and shapes.

If you don't have a vinyl cutter, there are so many places online that cut vinyl, or you could always use stickers.
