Americana Craft Bucket Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Fill this festive little bucket with candy or other goodies to give as a party favor for your guests this 4th of July.

Step one: Attach a 6mm antique brass-plated open jump ring to all of the antique brass star outline charms and the antique brass star charms.

Step two: Thread the 1.5mm poppy leather by the foot through one of the handle brackets on the bucket. For one side of the bucket use the 5mm round glazed porcelain beads in midnight, red and wicker in a random order spacing three of the star charms out between them. Your container size may vary from ours and require a different amount of beads. Repeat for the other side of the bucket.

Step three: Thread one of the ends of leather through the other bracket so that both leather ends are on one side of the bucket. Tie in a knot. Add a bead to each end and knot again. Trim the excess if necessary.
