Chalkboard Bucket


Here's a gift idea that would be super cute to make for a teacher.  I found these cute little metal buckets in the dollar spot at Target.  

They are the perfect size to use as a gift "bucket" instead of a basket.  And they can be spray painted any color and decorated to fit the occasion.  I like to add a ribbon and I have also added vinyl letters to personalize a gift. 

For this bucket, I taped off the rim and the handle and turned it upside down to prime and paint.  I used about two coats of primer and one coat of chalkboard spray paint.

Decorate and fill the bucket and you have a super cute personalized gift!
