Red Vintage Bucket Ornament | DIY Tutorial

I’m excited today to be joining a few of my blogging friends to launch a special holiday series! Today’s theme is Holiday Red-y! Stop by all of our blogs for holiday red-y outfits, DIY, and home decor! Today I’m sharing a cute red vintage bucket ornament DIY.


Every year my family hosts a holiday craft day. It’s a fun and relaxing way to spend extra time with them. The best part is that they leave it up to me to plan what we are going to make. I got the idea for this red vintage bucket ornament when I saw something similar on a larger scale browsing Christmas decorations recently. We also made THIS wreath and THIS ornament.



Red Vintage Bucket Ornament DIY Tutorial

~ Project Supplies ~

Mini Tin Buckets

Red Acrylic Paint

Chalkboard Stickers

Foam Brush

Floral Foam



Red/White Bakers Twine


Glue Gun




~ Ornament Instructions ~

Paint the bucket with 2 – 3 coats of red paint. Let dry in between each coat.



Once the paint is dry, center and apply a chalkboard sticker onto the bucket.



Cut a piece of baker’s twine the diameter of the sticker. Adhere the twine to the sticker with a glue gun.



Cut a piece of floral foam and insert it into the bucket.



Put a few drops of hot glue on the floral foam and add moss.



Adhere your choice of embellishments with your glue gun.



Write on some holiday cheer or a message with a piece of chalk.

Cut a 2 – 4 inch piece of twine and tie it onto the bucket handle to hang.

That’s it! I love how it turned out and the vintage vibe!
