Scrappy Easter Buckets
Hey everyone....Kristy here.
As I was parousing the craft store the other day, I came across some relatively cute bucktes in the Easter section. I thought to myself, "now those could be really fun to dress up". It was then and there that I decided to make my two sisters in-law a basket for Easter. (FYI they are as good as being blood sisters. I often call them my sisters, but people get confused because they know I have only brothers). Anyhow, I have to say that these little buckets were really addictive to do, and they went from being relatively cute to pretty darn cute! In fact, I just went and got one to alter for myself and for my Mother In Law.
I had no idea how much fun it could be to get busy with rubons and bling! I actually adhered rubons right onto the bucket which made for a cute variation to the dimension of flowers that I have on each bucket. I also got a little crazy with the Sugar Coating Glitter by Doodlebug. Seriously....if you're looking for something new to try, grab yourself a bottle of the stuff. It's a little frightening how all of the sudden you are able to think of all sorts of stuff to coat in bling!
On the bucket in the rear, I actually added a rim of orange glitter around the base of the bucket. I did have a rim of orange glitter around the top, but like the non-smart scrapper that I often am, I did that part first. I guess I was just too excited to play with the glitter. By doing it first I kept knocking it off when decorating the restof the tin. I finally just took it off and I'm trying to decide if I want to put it back or call it good.
On the flowers on the other bucket I added a bit of green glitter. I just love the way it brings some sparkle to a project.
Inside of the eggs, I've included lots of little scrappy surprises.
I hope they like it! (I don't think they even look at this blog, so I'm pretty safe in not ruining the surprise! ;0)
