Stenciled Galvanized Bucket

I had a couple of old, galvanized buckets lying around and I have been wanting to make them over for a while.  My house number is five and I put this bucket on my front porch.  I originally had planned to stencil this one and put a mini pine tree in it to add some decoration to my porch for Christmas.  Unfortunately, I just never got to it in time for Christmas.

I started by cleaning up this old, galvanized metal bucket.


I love these little boxwood, topiary trees and their little pots, but they were badly root bound and in need of a transplant.  I transplanted one of them into a large plastic liner and put it inside the galvanized bucket.  I covered the top with moss to hide the liner.  

I already had the wreath stencil that I made for this project.  I just cut out a new stencil for the No. 5. 

The tree might be a little small for this bucket, but it will grow and I can always switch it out because it is not planted directly in the bucket.

I'm a fan! I have a couple of buckets in my kitchen where I toss my kitchen towels until there's enough to do a small load of laundry. I may have to label them now :)

I recently got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas from my hubby, and I am so excited to dive into projects. I made an inspiration board on my blog with a few Silhouette projects that have me head over heels, and your stenciled galvinized bucket is one of them! You can check it out here:

I just love the rustic-yet-refined look to it! Thanks for sharing.

Hi there! I want to share my experience. I use an galvanized bucket for large plants or flowers. I carry out it into the yard in summer. There are small holes for unwanted water. I wrap the bucket with burlap or foil. It looks like a creative garden object. I feel myself like a garden designer.
