Crafty Project - French Flower Bucket - DIY
I used the image that you see above for this project. You can click HERE to find 2 different versions of it and then you can choose the one that works best for you.
For this project I used an antique sap bucket that I've had for a few years. You can really use whatever you like, this would be cute on a regular metal bucket from the hardware store, a metal paint can, a watering can etc.
I've included a supply list and instructions below:
1) Printed copy of the image shown above.
2)Mod Podge (I used matte finish)
3)Brown stampers ink or antiquing glaze
Step 1)Print out the image (you may need to adjust the size to fit your project). Cut it out and apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the image.
Step 2) Apply label to your metal bucket and smooth out any bubbles. Let dry.
Step 3) Brush on a coat of Mod Podge to the top of the label. Let dry.
Step 4) Apply some brown stampers ink or antiquing glaze with a wet rag. This step is optional.
Step 5) Rub the ink or glaze in, with a light circular motion and remove excess.
You can see I didn't use a lot of the glaze, I didn't want it to be too brown, I just wanted to take the white down a notch. That's all there is to it! Now you have a lovely French bucket to keep display your fresh cut flowers in.
