How About A Little Sparkle?

Good Wednesday evening everyone.  I had the day off and enjoyed it by doing some fun things and running around doing errands.  It was a cold and windy day here in Michigan and all the hunters have gone off hunting.  My hubby and my son left early this morning for the elusive big trophy(the big deer).  My other son could not get off of work and he was really disappointed.  I for one can't understand how it could be so fun when it is usually so cold outside, but oh well I am not a hunter!
Well on to my little project and this one is an easy and fun one.  I had this old galvanized pail just sitting around and I thought I would do something fun with it.  Here is the before picture:

 Usually everyone has an old bucket or pail just sitting around but I thought that this little pail needed a little sparkle.  I drew an exaggerated heart on one side and took out my acrylic paints and choose a fun pink color. 
 When the paint had dried and adhered to the pail I took some Elmer's glue and painted that on just inside the pink heart.  I sprinkled on some gold glitter on top of the glue before it had dried.
 When that had dried, I lightly sprayed the whole pail with some varnish.  Just lightly and especially on the heart to keep the sparkles on.

 So how do you like my little sparkle pail?  It could be used for so many things, but I put some flowers in it. 
Well until next time, Dianne.......

  3. Great idea, I have a new pain not an old one but I could include it in my re-purposing this year instead of purchasing Christmas decorations. I like your fun flowers

  4. I have a well worn bucket like that! Hmmmmm!

  5. I think your bucket is looking pretty cute. I had bought myself a new one a few years ago and I painted it white then added some sparkle. Unfortunately, the sparkle didn't adhere very well. It's still pretty though and looks good with my shabby cottage decor. I love paint! Thanks for sharing at my HOME and have a lovely day.
