Isn't he the cutest giveaway supporter ever?
Now on to my new planter...
To make this I just cut up a paper bag from West Elm and wrapped the bucket in it.
I let some of the lettering show at the bottom of the bucket because I think it makes it look cooler.
To glue it down I used Mod Podge, then went back over the whole thing with it when I was done. Because the paper was so thick I had to really pile on the Mod Podge.
Here it is trying to dry:
After it had dried, I hot glued the hemp cord around the top. I hadn't planned on making it match the ladder; I wasn't even sure where I was going to put it when I was finished,
but I like how the two look together.
By the way, if anyone's curious, I got the ladder from World Market a few years ago.
I did this project Friday while I watched the Royal Wedding (which I had obviously dvr'd....I was excited but not enough to get up at 4 a.m.) I loved every spectacular second.
Here are my two cute wedding-watching buddies.
They didn't even make it through the walk down the isle.
