Seahorse Bucket


Hi everyone! I am working on a project that I’m very proud of…or will be when finished! I needed to practice making a seahorse for the project. I think this little guy came out so cute….

I had this little galvanized bucket…it seems like forever. I am pretty sure I picked it up at a craft store.

So now I had to try my hand at drawing a seahorse. When I was satisfied with the drawing, I cut it out and pinned it on a piece of burlap, then cut it out!

I had purchased these shells for another project…. I purchased them at Walmart.

Don’t you love these shells…..so pretty…TIP Alert: I have a really fantastic tip that I just happened upon. Well you know how raveled the ends get with burlap, I tried spraying it with Rusoleum Clear Spray Sealer. It worked!!! The seahorse was so much easier to handle. It stiffened it up just a little bit, but I love how the ends aren’t raveling anymore. I then used ‘Goop’ to put the little guy on the pail. Then I decorated him with some shells…..So what do you think?
