Summer Bucket List

This idea has been floating my head ever
since I saw the new paper line from
It was inspired by two of my favorite past projects...
 my gift bucket and our fall to-do list clipboards...
but this one is my favorite!


The tin bucket is from Hobby Lobby...


I used mt Cricut to cut the vinyl for the title.
I did consider Modge Podge-ing on paper letters or even stickers,
but in the end the vinyl worked great!


 I used scrap ribbon, fabric, and twine to embellish the handle.
At first I did the entire handle and was too much,
 so I did it heavy on one side and
then just a bit on the other... Ahh, much better!


The clothes pins ar made from bamboo...
they have a really nice color to them naturally,
but I had to add stripes of Summer Fresh paper!

On the reverse, I used a red pen to write out
 what we wanted to do this summer.
I also considered running the strips through the printer
 like I did before with the fall clips,
but in the end I liked the handwritten...
kinda relaxed version.

Some of our activities include...
TUBE THE RIVER
TAKE A ROAD TRIP
MAKE LEMONADE
HAVE A WATER BALLOON FIGHT
GO TO THE BEACH
TAKE DADDY TO LUNCH

I have a boredom jar (that will match) in the works...
that will include to the little things we will do more than once!
Be sure to come back and see it!


 I can't seem to make any decor without my fabric flowers! 
The yellow one is made from crape paper...
I just adore the red and yellow!


 The summer fresh line comes with the most adorable tags...
It was hard to choose just one
to dangle from the handle, but I managed!


I have invited a group of girls over for craft night
and we are all going to make one!
You should make one, too!
Pin It

Let's go make something,
