Flower Bucket Redo

I had this project on my “to do” list but it kept getting pushed down.  A flower bucket that I had received with some flowers awhile ago and I painted it pink the first time around {it was originally brown}.

I decided to repaint it and used the Rustoleum Aluminum spray paint that I already had.

Too shiny, so I drybrushed some Antique White craft paint on it.

Which kind of gives it an oxidized look.

Then I used a new stencil I got and stenciled “No. 6” using this French script stencil set onto a strip of Osnaberg fabric.  I sewed around the image and frayed the edges a little bit.

I attached it to the flower bucket with a spray adhesive.

I’m liking it much better now!

I made up a few extra of these stenciled fabric strips and put them in my Etsy, so you could make up your own accessories with them.

Love what you did with your flower bucket! So nice to know you came by!

Controlling My Chaos said...

Very pretty. I like how you added the fabric to yours too. I have a bucket this exact same shape that I am going to store my rulers in at school. I was thinking it would be fun to make ruler markings out of vinyl going down the bucket. I still have to figure the logistics of that out.
