Ready for a super easy Strawberry Buckets Tutorial?
This last week, I set-up a fun Lemonade Stand play date for my daughters. They were itching to get outside in the warm weather and I’m a sucker for an excuse to dress them up and photograph them…so I thought, what a perfect opportunity. Using my Strawberry Shortcake Printables, I took a little twist on the traditional Lemonade Stand with a fun and fresh Strawberry Lemonade Stand fit for two little ladies.
My super talented friend and photographer Rachel from Rachel K Photography came along to snap pictures. They are some of my favorite:) I will be sharing them later!
One of the cute little decorations I made for the Strawberry themed spread was Strawberry buckets.
These were super fun and easy little centerpieces that are great by themselves or as favors, place card holders, treat buckets…really the possibilities are endless. For the playdate, I put a small piece of floral foam in the bottom to help hold the straw/cupcake toppers in place and used them as centerpieces.
This craft is SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY easy. Take small red metal pails, with a sharpie, draw strawberry seeds onto the bucket. (The best part about this is that you really do not need to be an artist. Strawberry seeds are completely haphazard and not necessarily the same size, so eyeballing the seeds and randomly spacing them out is completely fine and will look super cute.)
If the thought of drawing on your buckets gives you nightmares and you break out into a cold sweat at the thought of mistakenly ruining your metal pails…they are also cute without the dots:
Once you have drawn your dots (or not drawn them, I won’t judge) simply fill the little buckets with green shredded paper ( or even some left over Easter grass…you know you have been dying for a way to reuse that stuff!) Fill the bucket until they are just barely overflowing for a nice green leaf look to complete your Strawberry.
Stick a paper straw with a 2″ circle ontop and presto, easy peasy centerpieces.
I told you they were a piece of cake…Strawberry ShortCAKE that is!!
