Flower Bucket Vase



Turn a drab household item into something beautiful with this Flower Bucket Vase tutorial. If you have a spare bucket, you can paint it so that it's hardly recognizable. Once it's dry, you can use it to decorate your home or garden. This piece of DIY home decor doesn't require much time or money, especially if you already have a bucket on hand. In fact, the most important thing you'll need to get through this project is the patience to let the paint dry thoroughly before you put this pretty DIY vase on display.
