Butterfly Birthday Beach Bucket

Hello!  Happy Wednesday! :)

My friend's little girl is having a birthday party this weekend, and Kason will be bringing Miss Ryleigh a super cute beach bucket filled with beach/pool goodies!

I got inspiration from Yesterday on Tuesday.  She made these adorable, personalized beach buckets.


I already bought the goodies to fill the bucket, and one of the items was a butterfly beach towel.  It was instant inspiration for my chalkboard.

I drew out a butterfly on contact paper.


Folded it in half, and cut out around the image.


I then affixed the contact paper to the bucket and sprayed it with chalkboard paint.


 Tada!  :)  I outlined the butterfly and added some polka dots with paint pen.



Personal, affordable, and easy...always a good recipe!  This gift came in under $10.00! 

Have a wonderful rest of your week!  Come back tomorrow for a giveaway announcement!

  2. That looks awesome! I'm laughing because my 17 year old has to bring a secret pal gift to something tomorrow, and guess who's getting a beach bucket of goodies? Proves you're never too old for beach buckets.
