Birthday Bucket!!!

I love to make these buckets for birthdays and baby showers. They are actually one gallon paint cans but I call them buckets. I made this for my neighbors daughter who turned 11. Rennen has such a bright personality so I wanted the colors to match how bright she is!!! The paper and some of the ribbon is from the dollar spot at Target. Some of the other supplies used were from my scrapbook room.

The is the top of the bucket. This flower was purchased at Pebbles in my Pocket, a scrapbook store in Vegas. The cap in the middle was covered in Liquid Glass [Close to my Heart] and sprinkled with Martha Stewart glitter. It came out so funky!!! Thanks for looking and have a Happy Monday!!!!!
