Christmas Bucket Tea Light Holder

This is probably a VERY naughty thing for me to do, but I have always have my camera with me and in January I was in a gift shop when I saw this festive bucket in the sale, I was too mean to buy it, but I took a sneaky pic because I liked the idea. Shhhhh!
Christmas Bucket
Below is my version ….
Enamel Bucket Tea Light Holder
I got home and was looking through my bits and stumbled upon the little green bucket I had forgotten I had, which is almost an identical colour, ‘twas fate.

I set about making the fringe using white felt and sewing small jingle bells on it.

And then used some red Dylon 3D glitter paint for the lines.  When the paint was dried I stuck the fringe onto the bucket using a strong PVA glue.  To be honest I think the 3D paint is too thick and blobby and if I were to have another go, I think I would just use a red micro glitter and PVA glue.

ooh I've got a bucket...I could do that too. I have taken a few sneaky pics in my time, it amazes me what people will charge for things that are so simple to make yourself.
