So I happened upon this funny idea for a trash bucket for my R.V. and couldn’t resist making it.
We always seem to have a collection of empty buckets with us,
for trash, recycling and pinecones…. so why not decorate them? Right?
Bucket from the bakery at the store (Free)
stickers, letters, outdoor paint
It started with a blank canvas.
Sketched a few ideas. Some made it, some not…. figured out simpler lines were easier on a round surface.
Used a little goo gone to remove the bakery sticker. Washed the bucket inside and out.
I outlined the trailer with a marker, and if you put the original inside the bucket,
and hold it up to the light, you can trace it onto the front of the bucket with the marker.
I figured out that an ink pen just wouldn’t write on this surface.
Kinda like a coloring book page, put the bold lines down first, then add the details later.
I did cheat a little bit, used scrapbook letters for the “Trailer Trash” and some tiny pinecone stickers too.
Traced a cutout of a moose kissing a moose….think I’ll add a heart between their noses.
You can decorate in any style that suits your decor. The next one will have some bears on it.
As Always, Enjoy!!
