House Number Planter


I'm so bad about taking before pictures. I need to get better at that! I would love to do tutorials on some of the things that I make, but I get involved and forget to take pictures of all of the steps.
Anyway, here is the after pictures of my house number bucket that I did!

I printed off the numbers on card stock and cut them out to make stencils.
I painted a galvanized bucket that I already had with some hammered copper spray paint that I already had.

Then I traced the stencils with a sharpie and painted the numbers with navy paint.
I then sprayed the bucket with a sealer. Drilled holes in the bottom for drainage and planted flowers in it!

I just love it!

Nice job.I know what you mean about pictures.I use a notepad to list my projects and photograph all possibilities.Such as,old bucket,broken wreath,pile of bricks etc.Then if I jump into a project I have the befores.It helps when I trift to have my camera and see just what project I thought of doing.Oh the buns are yummy!

Wow this is such a great idea....now I just have to find a bucket like that.

You're so clever! Totally stealing this...I wonder if the number 4 will work as well, and what's a sharpie?
