How to make a tulip bucket door decor; today I’m sharing this metal bucket that I found for almost nothing. It’s time for our Thrift Store Decor team to share our thrifty makeovers!
Honestly, I could not figure out why it was marked down to $4.99. It’s so cute and I loved the paint patina with the metal showing through. Let me show you the before:
READ THAT, it makes no sense whatsoever! Let love full of home, huh?? That’s why they were practically giving it away, hahahaha.
I added affiliate links for the products that I used.
Here’s what you need to transform a metal bucket:
- Spray paint (I used: spray chalk paint in new leaf )
- Chalk transfer this one: Bloom
- White Chalkology Paste find it here: White paste
- Floral foam
- 6 bunches of small tulips – mine are from Michael’s they were $2 per bunch.
Tape off the bucket before spray painting if you want to leave any of the original color. If not, just spray paint the whole thing.
After the spray chalk paint dries, I applied the bloom transfer, not a stencil more like a screen print.
Add floral foam to the bucket, my piece was large enough to just wedge in to the container. If you are using a smaller piece, add hot glue to the bottom to hold it in place.
Arrange tulips in the bucket. I started with the middle first and moved on to the left and right side. Finished by filling in the other areas. Fluff and bend the flowers over the edge so they look like they’re spilling out, for a more realistic look.
