Here's a crayon bucket I made to hold my son's every-growing collection of crayons:
Here are the supplies you'll need to make one:
- pail (I bought mine at Michael's. It was $4.99 before I used my 40% off coupon.)
- paper trimmer, scissors
- glue stick, ruler
- patterned paper scraps
- journalling block and sanding block
- bling embellishments
I started by cutting my paper strip to the size I wanted. Mine is 2 inches wide. Because the pail is 13 inches around, I attached a different patterned pieces together using glue.
I was able to just dab a little glue in a couple of spots to secure it to the pail.
I used some lettering stickers to make the words "scribble", "draw", and "colour"- then I wrote the word" create" using a scrapbook pen.
I sanded the edges of my journalling spot, using my sanding block. Then I glued that on. I added 2 rhinestone embellishments to each side of my label to jazz it up a bit.
The finished product:
If I had wanted to go all out, I could have decorated the lid as well. Or tied pieces of ribbon to the handle. But I wanted to dress it up just a bit. It is made for a 2 and a half year-old after all.
Now it's all ready to go for colouring time!!
