At my son's recent Wedding Rehearsal Dinner,
I decorated the front entry with this vintage galvanized bucket full of roses.
This is how it looked...
A closer view showing the roses displayed with a sweet photo and stack of vintage books.
Perfect for the setting.
To create, I simply decoupaged a label using Mod Podge -(Matte finish).
Copied from a book of labels by http://store.doverpublications.com/
onto plain copy paper.
I tore the edges and made a wash from 'Burnt Umber' acrylic paint and water
to give it an antique look.
I let it dry before decoupaging to the bucket.
To make it waterproof, paint over the label with more Mod Podge to seal.
Draped with vintage crochet edging and skeleton 'keys to my heart',
this created a rustic romantic container for roses.
After the wedding, I enjoyed the beautiful flowers at home.
A vintage tool caddy....
And vintage crates....
Can you ever have too many flowers?
I think not!
For a few precious days it was like living in a flower shop.
Such a lovely reminder of a very special occasion.
I hope this inspires you to create your own rustic romantic
vintage style flower bucket of your own.
Thank you, Dear Friends for your sweet visit!
