MAKE THIS EMOJI HEART ICE BUCKET FOR V-DAY!
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!
Or if you would prefer, get the emoji heart stickers here!
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 //
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.
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!
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.
Finally, using your transfer tape, rub a section over the yellow sparkles and transfer over to one of the pink hearts. Rub down hard again with the transfer tape on the pink heart and pull away so that you take both the heart and the sparkle. Then stick directly onto your ice bucket, rub the shape again against the bucket and pull away the tape leaving behind the heart.
Repeat with all of your hearts until your ice bucket is covered!
Now all that’s left to do is fill the bucket with ice and pop in your delicious beverages! SO CUTE right?! I feel like I want to keep it on my side all year round, not just for Valentines Day! xxx
