Make a Bucket Advent Calendar


Tomorrow may be December 1st, but that doesn't mean we don't have time to make this absolutely delightful bucket advent calendar. Here's the materials list for a quick trip to the store:    

  • 9 bags of white tin pails (the maker found hers at a Dollar Tree in the wedding aisle)
  • numbered vinyl stickers (or an electronic cutting machine and appropriate cartridge)
  • Krylon Cherry Red spray paint
  • primer
  • MDF of wood board
  • a pretty flower
  • angled screws
  • drill and drill bit

For the entire tutorial, head on over to Infarrantly Creative.
