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.

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!

DIY Floral Flower Ice Bucket with Natural Confetti from Shropshire Petals Wine Cooler Champagne_-4 DIY Floral Flower Ice Bucket with Natural Confetti from Shropshire Petals Wine Cooler Champagne_-11

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.

I’ve absolutely fallen in love with metallics this season and Oliver Bonas has fulfilled all of my metallic dreams! I love how classy the gold & bronze tones look when teamed together with pretty pastels & they really add that glitzy, Christmas vibe I feel! You can find the items we used in the shoot below…

THE PINECONES…

Hot chocolate bar oliver bonas pastel themed decoration christmas xmas styling mint pink blue pine cones mugs festive pretty modern DIY how to-10

I took a lovely woodland walk to find these pine cones then dried and opened them up in the oven. You’ll need to line a baking tray with tin foil and space your pine cones evenly out on the tray. Next cover the tray with tin foil and pop in a fan oven at 150 degrees Celsius. Mine took just under 2 hours to dry out and open up but it entirely depends on how damp they are and they’re size so just keep an eye on them! Next you’ll want to leave them to cool then spray paint them white and leave to dry. Finally, paint them in whichever colours you choose with craft paint!
