I know what you’re thinking…an ice bucket DIY in January? Has she gone nuts? Well let me tell you, no I have not. Cold drinks are required all year round and they’re even better when served in the prettiest ice bucket you’ve ever seen!

You can easily make this emoji heart ice bucket just in time for Valentines Day to make sure that you’re serving your drinks in style and the best news is it takes less than an hour to create!

YOU WILL NEED:

A pink ice bucket (or a normal ice bucket, I just spray painted this one with Rustoleum’s candy pink) // Dark pink vinyl // yellow vinyl // transfer tape // A cricut explore (or you can cut the stencil’s out free hand if you don’t have one, they just won’t be as perfect) // Emoji Heart Template 1 // Emoji Heart Template 2 //

STEP 1:

Upload the heart templates to the Cricut Design Space and resize to the size you want, I made my heart 2.2 inches wide to fit my ice bucket and then I adjusted the size of the yellow sparkles to match. You’ll then want to duplicate the shapes as many times as you require to cover your ice bucket. I ended up having 21 hearts in total.

STEP 2:

Start by placing your pink vinyl onto your sticky mat and load into the machine, set your Cricit to cut vinyl and hit that go button!

STEP 3:

Once your machine has finished cutting out all of the pink hearts, repeat step two with your yellow vinyl and allow it to cut out all of the sparkles.

*NEW TREND ALERT* Geode is going to be BIG in the wedding industry this year and we are loving this trend! I mean how beautiful are the amethyst rocks? Every single stone is different and unique in it’s own way! We have a few DIYs planned over the upcoming months including geode but we thought it would be fun to kick off the trend with an amethyst nail mani! I just love how glittery and sparkly this design turned out, they are definitely sure to WOW! Here’s how to recreate this look…
