Fourth of July Buckets

Aaaahhhh, the weekend. My favorite time of the week! It's Becky with you today and I hope you're having nice weather where you are too. Today's project is one I made after seeing centerpieces like this done on various websites. I needed something to add to our table for the Fourth of July bash and these were very easy to do. I had purchased these plain white paint pails, on clearance at Hobby Lobby. On of them was even dented! But once I Mod Podged the paper on, you couldn't even tell! I used Making Memories patterned paper to make two different sized pinwheels and plain card stock in three colors, to coordinate with the patterned paper, to make stars in different sizes. Then glued the pinwheels and stars to painted dowel rods and stuck them in the paint cans where I had placed some floral foam to hold them upright. To cover up the foam, I used that crinkly crunched up paper you use for gift bags. I finished the cans off by adhering letters that spell Celebrate Freedom and some navy grosgrain ribbon on the paper seams. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
