Minnow Bucket Centerpiece
By: Kristy Robb

I love snagging flea market finds for my outdoor decor. It's a thrifty way to decorate your patio or deck without having to worry about the items getting weathered... because, well, that just makes it look even more retro-chic!
- Metallic Lustre 1oz - Radiant Red
- Foam Brush
- Painters Tape
- Fairy Lights
I just taped off some areas to paint, then applied the wax with a foam brush. I let it dry a few minutes and then used a cotton cloth to buff it into a beautiful glimmer-like finish. It was super easy and made a big impact on the buckets. I love how the color is both semi-transparent and shimmery. It was a lot easier to apply on the round surface of the buckets, too.
Summertime always brings out the stars and stripes at the Robb household. We proudly display our red, white and blue from Memorial Day through the July 4th holiday. So, I used my Silhouette machine to cut out a United States sticker and some stars to give the set of buckets a patriotic flair.
The buckets are adorable as centerpiece planters on my patio table and go from day to night with a set of fairy lights tucked inside the buckets.
