This is the lid to the Oak Farms which you can see has a lot of printing and the bucket is a Walmart brand which has little to none on the bucket itself and only the lid has the printing.
I discarded the lids and the handles from the buckets, then spray painted them with Sweet Pea and Warm Yellow Rust-oleum Ultra Cover. Once the buckets were dry, I adhered some ribbon to the top of each bucket using P K Glitz Sticky Tape and made some tags from scraps of paper using my Silhouette. It was that easy!
Now these two buckets hold all of my handmade cards.
I will warn you, the paint on the plastic buckets will scratch off. I do not have little ones in my home and it is not something that will be handled a lot so I think they will stay looking nice for a long time.
ETA: Since creating these buckets I have learned that they actually make spray paint specifically for plastic. Wow! Wish I had known. Anyway - I would certainly try using the spray paint for plastic when creating this project.
What are you waiting for? You now have a great excuse to go out and buy that tub of ice cream! LOL
