Decided to recycle an old paint bucket to use as part of my fall decorations and maybe in a class at the store this fall...
I love the Farm House paper line! This is a group of papers they came out with last fall and I thought I could use them to cover the paint bucket and to make decorations for my dining room table this fall. Everything used in creating this bucket is recycled except for 4 sheets of paper from the Sugar Hill line from Farm House Papers. Actually less then four...one to cover the bucket, two to make flower pics/thankful cards, and a half one to make flowers. I also used light weight cereal box between the two sheets of paper on the flower pics/thankful cards. (That thing peeking out on the upper right!) All of the leaves were bits and pieces of colored card stock I pulled out of my card stock recycle bin and cut out the shapes with the Tattered Leaves die by Tim Holtz/Sizzix. I embossed them with various embossing folders after distressing around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
