What you needPlastic Bucket
Gold Vinyl Polka Dots
Clear Spray varnish (optional)
For this tutorial I used a store bought flexible carry bucket ($4) and ready made set of vinyl polka dots that I purchased online via Ebay for a few dollars. I was tired of taking my boring bucket to swimming lessons week after week. So I decided a revamp was in order.
You could use a stencil and spray paint your dots on if you like. I went for the vinyl because I have an issue with getting things perfectly round. You could use the dots to spray over and then remove for a perfect circle or you can just add the dots.
I started by laying out my dots and making sure they were evenly spaced. I used a dab of craft glue on the back of all the dots for extra adhesion. I don’t want the hot sun lifting them.
I used my gold Sharpie to free hand the word “Splash” onto my bucket. You could change this to anything you want.
