If you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride since August you would have seen the beautiful Confetti Bucket DIY in collab with Shropshire Petals! I absolutely adored making that ice bucket and loved the way it turned out so much that I wanted to try and recreate one with a Christmas spin! An ice bucket that would be the perfect centre piece for any table and really show off the glitz and glam of Christmas! This year, in our house, the festive theme is metallics so I really wanted my ice bucket to match and include lots of golds, coppers and bronze shades! Let’s get going shall we?

YOU WILL NEED:

Metallic confetti (I went for gold stars) // Crystal type confetti // Glitter // Tinsel // 1 large bucket // 1 smaller bucket (it needs to fit inside the large bucket but also be big enough to hold a bottle) // stones //

STEP 1:

Take your large bucket and fill it with 2-3 inches of water then pop in the freezer and allow to freeze.

STEP 2:

Next, grab the smaller bucket and place inside the larger one then weigh it down with stones to ensure it doesn’t float when we add in the extra water!

STEP 3:

Add another 2 inches of water to the bucket next and sprinkle in some glitter, then allow to freeze.

Socks are such a staple at Christmas, I really don’t think that there has ever been a Christmas in my life when I didn’t receive socks as a present and I am totally ok with that! I love socks, especially the warm and cosy kind but most of all socks that look cute are the best! I feel like now, more than ever socks are becoming a really big thing in fashion (we’re looking at you Happy Socks!) and I thought it would be super fun to design a couple of pairs this year!

There are 2 different designs to make completely for free to help make your own! Whether you’re gifting them to friends, your bridesmaids or just to yourself there’s no denying that these socks are beyond cute! We have a cute cactus print or for something really simple and fun a gold polka design! It’s totally up to you what colour socks you go for but we decided on a shade of pink and a white pair for the gold polka dots. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own…

YOU WILL NEED:

Plain cotton socks //  Cactus design // An Iron // Gold glitter iron on // Green glitter iron on // A Cricut Explore //

FOR THE POLKA DOT SOCKS

Simply create a circle shape in your Cricut design space (I sized the circles 1 inch in diameter)  and load in your gold iron on into the machine. Allow the machine to cut it out then peel away the negative space leaving only the polka dots. Heat up your iron and iron on the dots, varying the placement as you go, making sure that you cover the entire of the socks. Super simple!
