Bucket Shaker into a Basket Shaker~
April 13, 2017
Hi, Connie here with a cute idea using the Bucket Shaker by Clear Scraps. By using different embellishments the Bucket Shaker can easily become an Easter Basket. The Easter Basket is displayed on a vintage Easter book that was given to me by a friend. Super cute table center piece for Easter.
I used pattern paper on the inside of the Bucket Shaker (soon to be Easter Basket) and then painted the frame with acrylic paint. To achieve the crackle effect, apply crackle paint over the acrylic paint. When it is dry you will have a lush, vintage looking finish on the frame of the shaker.
The chipboard Easter word was given the same finish as the frame but a darker acrylic paint was used on the word. Both acrylic paint colors are in the pattern background paper of the shaker. The inside was filled with sequins by Clear Scraps.
In this photo you can really see the gorgeous crackle on the frame and chipboard word. I love the look!! Beautiful and so easy to achieve. It would love great hanging from an Easter Basket.
