We love easy projects and you will love this DIY Rock Covered Bucket and there are just so many possiblities ..
We just love really easy projects that have stunning results and we were more than a bit excited when we discovered this clever idea from Centsational Girl.
This DIY Rock Covered Bucket is genius in its simplicity and you can use this process in so many ways. Whilst she has used it to cover a bucket .. it’s actually a trash can, we got to thinking about all the different items that are a little on the lack lustre side and thought what an instant makeover we could give them.
So what have you got hanging around the house or shed that you could use for this project?
How about Coffee Tins, Baby Formula Tins, Paint Tins, Glass Jars or even a Clay Pot or wicker basket ..
More Ways To Use This Idea
Whilst the wicker basket might sound slightly random, just take a look at the photo we found on Pinterest.
We couldn’t believe how cute this was and we are heading to the Dollar Store in the very near future to see if we can recreate this fabulous look. If you do give it a try, be sure to send us a picture of your project. We would love to see what you create.
Here’s another great way you can use this technique. Pretty up your Clay Pots like the ones below. We found them on Dave’s Garden and think it’s a fabulous idea. As you can see, anything goes. You can leave the lip of the Clay Pot exposed for a bit of contrast or you could cover the pot in its entirety. You could even use contrasting rocks and pebbles.
