DIY Personalized Birthday Gift Idea

Hello Loves, have you all made it into October alright? Well, I am already down 
with my first cold of the new season !!! FIGURES!!!

I wanted to share a quick little project I made last weekend. I was invited to a 
60th Birthday Party and I wanted to bring a "little something special and 
personal" to the birthday girl. Earlier that morning I went to a local bazaar and 
purchased another galvanized bucket (which one can never have enough 
Once I got home I stenciled her birth year onto the bucket.

I used a pencil to trace my numbers and letters onto the bucket first

then I used a black marker to go along the edges and then 
I used a little acrylic paint on a small brush to go over everything

So quick and easy!

Now I have to make some more of these cute buckets 
for upcoming birthdays!!!!! 

There are so many cute things you can do with old buckets, you might 
want to check out this previous post of mine for some more ideas:
