Hi friends! Can you believe that spring is right around the corner? For us in sunny AZ it’s completely believable, we’re already in 80+ degree weather! Everything around is blooming (hello, allergies!) and it has us shedding winter wear and longing to decorate with goodies from the flower market. Which brings us to today’s latest Michael’s Makers project – this DIY Metal Flower Market Bucket.

Michaels’ new Floral Market has over 500 new blooms and freshly picked projects make this the prettiest spring ever. Just by swapping out a few décor pieces or adding a lovely floral arrangement can completely transform your home for the fresh, new season. If you don’t know where to begin, you can always take a look at some of the fun projects on Michaels.com or the other 49 Makers’ ideas on The Glue String for to see how they personalized their crafts! Now let’s go over our quick and easy DIY Metal Flower Market Bucket project:

What you’ll need:

  • galvanized steel bucket
  • rust colored paint (we used Americana Multi-Surface Cocoa Bean)
  • dark and light colored grey paint (we used Americana Multi-Surface Steel Grey and Dolphin)
  • black paint (we used Americana Multi-Surface Black Satin Tie)
  • sea sponges
  • paint pouncer

And the steps:

  • To “age” the steel bucket, create rusty edges using your sponges around the rust colored paint.
  • Once that is dry, use another paint sponge to apply a light coat of the darker grey paint all over the bucket.
  • Once that is dry, do the same with the light grey paint.

Once you’ve achieved the look that you’re going for with the paint, let that cure at least over night. Then continue on:

  • Using a cutting machine such as the Cricut or Silhouette (or even premade alphabet stencils), create your flower market stencil. If you have a Cricut machine, you can use this Flower Market Cut File. If you have a Silhouette, you can download this Flower Market Cut File.
  • Tape the stencil to the area you’d like on the bucket and using a pouncer, fill in the stencil with black paint.
  • Remove the stencil and let dry (depending on the tape you used, you may have to touch up the grey paint if the tape lifted any).

    Love how this project turned out! So pretty and “farmhouse” looking especially in the display you’ve created around it. Great tutorial on creating it as well.

    Hi-

    I don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette. I’m trying to re-create the file (and customize the numbers). What font did you use?

    Thanks.
