Spangled Craft Bucket Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Use this cute little bucket as a votive holder this 4th of July. Make several to light up the party before the fireworks begin. You can give them to your guests as a party favor.

Your container size may vary from ours and may require a different amount of beads.

Step one: Use Gem-Tac permanent adhesive and a jewel setter or tweezers to alternate SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS ss20 Sapphire and Light Siam flatbacks around the top border of the bucket. Our bucket used 12 flatbacks on each side of the bucket.

Step two: Use ss20 flatbacks for the stars centers. Arrange the ss12 Sapphire and Light Siam flatbacks around the centers to form the stars. We put stars on just one side of the bucket.
