I am SO IN LOVE with this idea and the great news is it’s something that you can easily create yourself if you’re on a budget! Shop around the supermarkets and find out where the best donuts are for you, we got these ones from Sainsbury’s and they were 24 donuts for £5! Total bargain! Here’s how easily you can do this…

STEP 2:

Next add on your next layer on donuts, we found this looks best if you place them in between the placements of the layer below, i.e. making sure that donuts are not lined up with each other.

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!

diy-emoji-heart-ice-bucket-valentines-day-drinks-cooler-cute-pink-tutorial_-19 diy-emoji-heart-ice-bucket-valentines-day-drinks-cooler-cute-pink-tutorial_-9

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!

Or if you would prefer, get the emoji heart stickers here!

Emoji Heart Stickers Button

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.

Happy Monday guys! I am so so so excited to be kicking off the week with a beautiful confetti DIY! Shropshire Petals are back and we’re showing you just how many things you can do with confetti (as well as throwing it of course!) In case you missed it we’ve already shared how you can make your own temporary tattoos with the natural petals and made some free printable confetti cones for holding your confetti and today we’re all about the floral confetti ice bucket!

I’ve seen these ice buckets done a couple of times with fresh fruit and knew they would look absolutely amazing with Shropshire petals natural confetti! Seriously guys, chilling wine and champagne never looked so good! Let’s get cracking on how we made it shall we?

YOU WILL NEED:

Natural confetti in different colours // 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, place the smaller inside that bucket and weigh it down with stones to ensure it doesn’t float when we add in the extra water!

STEP 3:

Add water to the half of the bucket and pack it full with your natural confetti! Then allow this to freeze. This will create the first ring of flowers.

STEP 4:

Once the previous section has frozen, fill the remaining space with water and pack full with confetti, you really want to try and pack it very tightly to get the best effect! Then freeze again and leave overnight.
