Decoupaged Galvanized Bucket

I promised I’d show you the project I made using one of the milk cap image printables I shared yesterday, so I got up early this morning to take photos of this decoupaged bucket in the kitchen, when the sunlight is so pretty shining through the window.

This is a project that takes about 5 minutes, plus a little drying time.  If you don’t have a galvanized bucket, it would work well on other things too.  I picked up my galvanized bucket a few weeks ago and originally planned to do an image transfer on it, like I did this bucket, but decoupage is quicker and easier, and you don’t need to reverse images before printing them.

I printed the “pure fresh milk” cap image as a full page image and cut it out.  Trim as closely around the edges as possible.

You can use Modge Podge, but I usually use plain school glue.  I just paint it on the back of the paper with a brush.

Position it on the bucket, making sure the paper is pushed down into the grooves.  Every few minutes, smooth it down again, to make sure it is adhered well.

I used satin spray polyurethane to seal it once the glue was dry.

This would make a cute bucket for holding apples or potatoes, or a few firewood logs, but would even make a great trash can.

It’s available in my online shop  HERE.

  10. Holy moly…your bucket looks spectacular! I love how the colours are just as vibrant or even more so than they are on the milk cap! I would’ve never thought of using a decoupage method on a galvanized bucket, but you’ve shown it works remarkably well…I want to try this!

  11. Yep, I love it too. I don’t have a bucket to try it on but I ‘ll bet it would look great on tin cans.

  12. Hey Angie … this is adorable! Would it also work on an Enamel Bucket?
