Traditions! Oh traditions! A new one I'm adopting this year is the Christmas Eve present (seen all over Pinterest) - incl. new pjs, a bucket of popcorn, hot chocolate makings, a Christmas book and a movie to watch. When you write it all out like that it seems pretty excessive, but anyway. We'll most likely just watch a movie we already have, but I already have a Christmas book set aside (Christmas in the Big Woods). I also required a pretty bucket for popcorn, and so I decided to decorate one we already have, & make it a tad more festive.
Supplies: A bucket (I also thought I could do this project using an empty hot chocolate container), fabric scraps, Mod Podge or similar (I used watered down glue - a tip I saw on someone else's facebook page, "Hi Rhiannon" *waves*).
Fabric into scallops.
Wide strip around the top of the bucket.
First row of scallops applied.
Second. And so on.
I gave my scallops a pen outline to make them stand out more, as the busy patterns were merging into one another. Fabric scraps left over after I completed this project for The Make Cafe.
